First H145 helicopter in Australia Pacific region


Advanced Flight Ltd of New Zealand received the first EC145T2 / H145 in the Australia Pacific Region


First H145 helicopter in Australia Pacific region


Airbus Helicopters, April 13, 2015 - Auckland - Less than twelve months after its corporate rebranding, Airbus Group Australia Pacific has delivered an advanced, multi-mission H145 helicopter.

The delivery of this first H145 to the Australia Pacific region culminates a program preparing the helicopter to its new owner’s requirements, with aircrews and technical support teams in New Zealand and Germany working to deliver the helicopter, which replaces the customer’s earlier model EC145.

Commenting on the H145’s delivery to its New Zealand customer, Dr Jens Goennemann, Managing Director Airbus Group Australia Pacific said, “We are delighted to see the arrival of the first H145 in this region. It’s yet another example of our customers acknowledging that Airbus Helicopters offers the latest in rotary-wing technology, enhanced mission capability and flexibility.”

Designed to deliver excellent performance throughout the flight envelope, the H145 was certified last year as the latest member of Airbus Helicopters’ 4-tonne-class, twin-engine product range, incorporating a package of state-of-the-art technologies that reinforce the family’s reputation as the quietest helicopters on the market.

This quietness is achieved by utilising an enclosed Fenestron® tail rotor and an automatic variable rotor speed control system which, together, produce significantly reduced external sound levels while boosting payload, range and speed.

Compact in size but with a spacious cabin that can accommodate one pilot and ten passengers, the H145’s small noise footprint, range and speed make it the aircraft of choice for a variety of civil missions.

The class-leading H145 will be touring Australia and New Zealand during May and June 2015.
