    Western Australia Police Orders Five-Bladed H145


    Airbus Helicopters, August 15, 2020 - The Western Australian Police Force has ordered one H145 to enhance police operations making it the first Australian customer to operate the five bladed H145.

    Purchased to replace its BK117 helicopter, and to operate alongside the AS365 N3+, this state-of-the-art H145 offers a full range of capabilities for the WA Police Force, including single-pilot and instrument flight rules, along with night vision goggles capability.

    When these aircraft capabilities are integrated with the on-board police mission system, the H145 is the perfect law enforcement partner to the WA Police Force across all its airborne missions.

    “We thank the WA Police Force for the opportunity to support its critical operations with our latest five-bladed H145 offering. The H145 is well regarded as a reference law enforcement helicopter, and we are proud to be able to configure the aircraft to include the mobile policing command post to enhance the capability of the WA Police Force, both in the air and on the ground,” said Andrew Mathewson, Managing Director, Airbus Australia Pacific.

    With a lower environmental footprint compared to its peers, the H145 sets the standard in carbon emission and sound levels for its class. It also has an availability rate of up to 95%, positively impacting aircraft readiness and cost.

    “Not only have we sourced an exceptional helicopter and flying command post for the vast State of Western Australia, we are also partnering with a global aviation company who has an extensive local footprint in Australia, ensuring our fleet availability,” said WA Minister for Police Michelle Roberts.

    Airbus has nearly two decades of presence in Australia, building extensive local industrial capabilities and network, in support of the country’s defence and commercial aviation. With a strong local team of more than 1,500 employees working across 23 sites for civil and military fixed-wing and rotary wing aircraft.
