Donauworth, Germany. December 21, 2020 - The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has certified a new Alternate Gross Weight (AGW) for the latest version of the H135 family of helicopters. The new AGW enables operators to benefit from an increased maximum take-off weight of up to 120 kg (265 lb) and useful load. This increase can also extend the range by up to 75 nm or the endurance by up to 40 minutes under standard conditions. The new AGW is available as an option and can be applied retroactively to all H135s equipped with Helionix.

Additionally, Airbus has recently certified a new single-pilot IFR Helionix cockpit for its H135 helicopters. The modified cockpit enables customers to choose between removing the instrument panel’s copilot side to increase the field of view or to keep it to install specific STC equipment. The single-pilot IFR cockpit of the H135 will further boost the capabilities of the H135 in several missions, including aerial work, utility, and law enforcement.

To date, AIRBUS has delivered more than 1,400 helicopters of the H135 family around the globe with more than 5.6 million flight hours.

More than 300 customers in 60 countries use helicopters from the H135 family for a wide range of missions, including Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS), law enforcement, private and business aviation, offshore wind, and military training.
