  • Royal New Zealand Air Force NH90 TTH
  • Royal New Zealand Air Force NH90 TTH

Eight TTH requested to replace the UH-1H in use by 3 Squadron. Up to four of them will be able to be transported aboard the new Navy, Multi Role Vessel, HMNZS Canterbury
On 22 Aug 2013, one of the first five RNZAF NH-90 was seriously damaged by a lightning strike, 4 nm NE of Ohakea Air Base, requiring the replacement of all main and tail rotors. For an all weather airframe which includes SAR in its role, this is a serious setback to the service introduction programme.
The NH90 was introduced into RNZAF service in 2013.
