The second prototype of Airbus' new five-bladed H145 took off for its maiden flight earlier this month at the Airbus Helicopters site in Donauwörth, Germany.

The helicopter will be used for additional flight tests to achieve EASA certification of the new five-bladed H145 in early 2020.

The first prototype is currently performing a high altitude test campaign in South America and the second prototype will be mainly used for autopilot testing, performance and airframe structural validation.

The new H145, unveiled at Heli-Expo 2019 in Atlanta, offers 150 kg of additional useful load, while also raising the bar for in-flight comfort, simplicity, and connectivity.
