    Airbus Helicopters, August 28, 2019 - Donauwörth – Early August, the second prototype of the new five-bladed H145 took off for its maiden flight at the Airbus Helicopters site in Donauwörth.

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