H160’s third prototype gets its carbon design livery


Airbus Helicopters, December 12, 2017 - Marignane, France - The third H160 prototype has received a fresh coat of paint and now features a striking “carbon” livery designed as a nod to the Airbus A350 XWB MSN2 flight-test aircraft.

Both aircraft are produced using advanced composite materials supplied by Airbus’ long term partner, Hexcel.

The H160 is the first civil helicopter equipped with a full composite fuselage, the advantages of which include a lighter fuel-saving airframe, performance optimization and simplified maintenance.
