Airbus Helicopters, September 17, 2020 - HONG KONG - As the global launch customer of the H175 public services version, Hong Kong-based Government Flying Service (GFS) has achieved two milestones with its H175 fleet: a total of 5,000 flight hours and 3,000 life-saving missions.

n 2015, the Government Flying Service (GFS) of Hong Kong decided to migrate to a fleet of seven H175 helicopters to service a range of public service demands. With a tally of 5,300 flight hours in nearly two years, the H175 fleet has proven to be the multi-mission answer for GFS.

Equipped with a team of 41 helicopter pilots and 46 aircrewman officers, having a fleet of seven H175 helicopters has enabled GFS to provide multiple services on a 24-hour basis.

GFS’s fleet of H175s are integrated with a number of innovative capabilities, including the Digital MAP (DMAP), a dedicated search radar, and a range of sensors to provide enhanced flight precision and situational awareness during SAR missions. If engaged in an operation that requires the assessment of a specific location or operation, GFS is also able to employ the video download link - a feature that relays footage to the ops team for analysis.

Today, the global fleet of H175s operated in 11 countries and regions has accumulated 85,000 flight hours in various missions, including offshore oil and gas, public services, private and business aviation, and passenger transportation, among others. GFS’s 5,000 hours of experience has contributed to this milestone and demonstrates the unique capabilities and safety of the helicopter for demanding public services missions.
