First H145M LUH SOF pilots complete training


Airbus Helicopters, March 09, 2016 - The first on-board crew for the H145M LUH SOF of the German Army has successfully finished their training at the Airbus Helicopters Training Academy in a mere two months.

After a total of 40 flight hours at the Airbus Helicopters Training Academy’s external site in Manching, Germany, the training participants returned to the Helicopter Wing 64 (Hubschraubergeschwader 64) of the German Air Force (Luftwaffe) in Laupheim on March 2.

The aircrew achieved the type rating for the H145M LUH SOF along with the qualification to conduct maintenance flights, rating instrumental flight and instructor pilot license for this particular model.

Due to this, the graduated pilots are able to train other crews to operate the LUH SOF. Along with the pilots, the first two serial rotorcraft of the LUF SOF have been transferred to Laupheim, where the helicopters will be prepared for service in the upcoming months.

The maintenance of the aircraft will be carried out by Airbus Helicopters employees on-site in Laupheim. The full-service contract between Airbus Helicopters and the German Army aims to achieve an availability rate of 95 percent.

In total, the German Army has ordered 15 aircraft of the H145M in LUF SOF configuration.
