Five more Dauphin helicopters to serve Japanese in police and firefighting missions


Airbus Helicopters, March 31, 2015 - A contract for two new Airbus Helicopters Dauphins, along with deliveries of three Dauphins this month, have underscored the importance of this twin-engine aircraft family in Japan – particularly with the country’s law enforcement and firefighting agencies.

The latest order was signed with Japan’s National Police Agency for one H155 version (previously known as the EC155) to be deployed by the Kagawa Prefectural Police, and an AS365 N3+ variant for the Fukuoka Prefectural Police. Both Dauphins are scheduled to be delivered in 2017, and will replace aging aircraft in these operators’ respective fleets. The H155 is Kagawa Prefectural Police’s first Airbus Helicopters-built rotorcraft.

This month’s three Dauphin deliveries in Japan involved an H155 for the Hyogo Prefectural Police, one AS365 N3+ received by the Hiroshima Prefectural Police, and an AS365 N3+ for the Nagoya City Fire Department.

“With a long and successful career, the Dauphin continues to be the helicopter of choice for highly demanding public missions in Japan and around the world,” explained Stephane Ginoux, Managing Director of Airbus Helicopters Japan. “This bestseller is backed by our full resources locally, providing prompt and efficient support and ensuring safe operations for customers.”

Currently, a total of 56 Dauphin helicopters are operated in Japan – including three H155s and six AS365s deployed by Japanese police agencies, as well as 24 AS365s flown in firefighting and disaster relief missions.

The medium-sized twin-engine Dauphin incorporates advanced technologies for rapid flight speeds, low noise and vibration. Equipped with Airbus Helicopters‘ signature Fenestron® shrouded tail rotor, the rotorcraft‘s spacious cabin comfortably accommodates up to 13 passengers and two pilots.
