Philippine Coast Guard Orders One Airbus H145 Helicopter

The Philippine Coast Guard has placed an order for one Airbus H145 helicopter, making it the first H145 parapublic operator in Philippines.

The new 4-tonne-class twin-engine helicopter is specially equipped with high frequency radios, emergency flotation gear, fast roping, cargo sling, search light, and electro-optical systems to perform critical missions including search and rescue, medical evacuation, maritime patrol and law enforcement.

The contract will also encompass on-site technical support and continuing airworthiness management organisation services, fully supported by Airbus’ team in the country.

“We are honoured by the Philippine Coast Guard’s decision to introduce the country’s first parapublic H145 into its fleet, as the perfect complement to the current workhorse BO105 which has served the agency well for the past 40 years,” said Philippe Monteux, Head of Southeast Asia and Pacific of Airbus Helicopters. “We have full confidence in the H145’s ability to support the agency’s work, coupled with our dedicated in-country customer centre which stays committed to supporting its operations in close proximity.”

There are currently four H145 helicopters operating in Philipines, mainly for business aviation purposes.
