Airbus Showcases New Version of H145 at Heli-Expo in Atlanta

Airbus Helicopters is unveiling a new version of its H145 light twin-engine helicopter at Heli-Expo 2019 in Atlanta this week.

Visible on the Airbus booth at the show, this latest upgrade brings a new five-bladed rotor to the multi-mission H145, increasing the useful load of the helicopter by 150 kg while delivering new levels of comfort, simplicity and connectivity.

“We’re extremely happy to be able to showcase the new H145 to our customers here in Atlanta as this upgrade owes a lot to the feedback they have provided us over the years about the aircraft,” said Bruno Even, Airbus Helicopters CEO. “Our teams have worked hard to quickly bring to the market a set of innovations that we believe will contribute to the success of our customers’ operations. It is their trust in the H145 and all its predecessor variants over the last decades that have made it the fantastic helicopter it has become today, and I want to thank them for their continuous support.”

The H145’s new five-bladed rotor brings a significant increase in overall performance, with a maximum take-off weight raised to 3,800 kg and a useful load now equivalent to the aircraft’s empty weight.

 The simplicity of the new bearingless main rotor design will also ease maintenance operations, while the reduced rotor diameter will allow the H145 to operate in more confined areas.

The new H145 introduces new levels of on-board connectivity to customers and operators through the integration of the wireless Airborne Communication System (wACS), allowing seamless and secure transmission of data generated by the helicopter in real-time, including in-flight.

EASA certification of the new H145 is planned for early 2020, with first deliveries to follow later that year.

 This upgrade will also be offered to current H145 customers as a retrofit option.

The H145 is powered by two Safran Arriel 2E engines.
