Airbus Helicopters announced 43 orders at last week’s HAI Heli-Expo in Atlanta.

Twenty-one helicopters of the 43 orders announced at the show were from longstanding Airbus Helicopters customer Air Medical Group Holdings (AMGH), which unveiled a contract for a mix of single-engine H125s and twin-engine H135s.

Major highlights included the launch of a new version of the H145, with orders for 10 units being announced at the show, as well as retrofits for nine helicopters.

Bruno Even, Airbus Helicopters CEO, said: “Heli-Expo is always a great opportunity to meet with our customers and to show them firsthand how we strive to bring innovations that meet their needs, like the five-bladed H145 we unveiled this year,”

Airbus performed daily demonstrations of the new digital support and service offerings that were unveiled at the show such as digital log cards, with CHC Helicopter’s newest H175 to become the first helicopter to be delivered with the new system, and the new Flight Analyser data analytics offering.

Key contracts from the HCare support portfolio were signed such as the first HCare Infinite in North America for Superior Helicopters and a global support contract for the 19 helicopters of the UK’s National Police Air Service (NPAS) of the United Kingdom.

Heli-Expo also saw some key partnership announcements with the selection of the Pratt & Whitney (PW 206B3) turbine engine to power the Airbus H135 IFR-certified helicopter the company is proposing for the US Navy helicopter trainer replacement.

Airbus Helicopters also announced partnerships with Skytrac, AMS and Lundin Software to enhance its data collection capabilities.
