Airbus Helicopters ramps up for UKMFTS as Juno H135 and Jupiter H145 go on display at RIAT 2017


Airbus Helicopters, July 12, 2017 - Airbus Helicopters will be represented at the Royal International Air Tattoo 2017 through the presence of the Juno H135 and Jupiter H145 at the Defence Helicopters Flying School (DHFS) static display.

Selected by Ascent Flight Training in 2016, Airbus Helicopters is the aircraft service provider for the UK’s Military Flying Training System (UKMFTS) rotary wing element.

The contract, worth £500 million over 17 years, will see Airbus Helicopters deliver 29 x H135 and 3 x H145 aircraft, all fitted with the latest standard Helionix system. Ascent Flight Training will work in partnership with the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) to deliver 28,000 flight hours per year using the H135 and H145 family of aircraft.

Following Ministry of Defence Release to Service on 12 May 2017, scarcely one year on from contract signature, fleet numbers are rapidly increasing, with the full Jupiter H145 fleet and 12 Juno H135s aircraft already delivered. The aircraft are now being used to train early MoD and Ascent instructors, as well as the Airbus Helicopters’ own maintenance personnel. Once the training officially starts in 2018, Airbus Helicopters will be set up to provide the required 28000 hours per year across both fleets, enabling Ascent and the MoD to deliver the DHFS student throughput.
