Airbus’ range begins with its?intermediate single-engine product line – the?H125 and H130.?Highly cost-effective rotorcraft, they offer a turbine-smooth environment and quiet rides, along with forward-facing seats, unmatched visibility for passengers and open-space cabins that enhance comfort and facilitate loading/unloading.
The twin-engine H135 and H145?have large cabins with flat floors, providing flexibility in seating arrangements and the creation of high-end interiors to satisfy the most discerning travellers. Both rotorcraft have high-set main rotor and a protected tail rotor for facilitated access, while their compact airframes allow landings and takeoffs from urban areas and city heliports, as well as super yachts and off-shore oil and gas platforms.
The medium-weight Dauphin?family is recognised worldwide for its exceptional roominess, comfort, endurance and efficiency. These twin-engine helicopters can operate within the most crowded airport environments, where their high speeds permit easy integration with fixed-wing traffic during landing approach and departure.
Airbus’ new-generation H175 and?H160?were?created to meet the evolving missions of the oil and gas industry and commercial transport providers, offering outstanding performance and unmatched cost efficiency in their segment.
In its Commercial Air Transport configuration, the cabin of the?H160?can accommodate up to 12 passengers. Its unobstructed large cabin has been specially designed to provide a spacious, comfortable environment and rapid egress capability. Using advanced safety technologies and meeting the highest standards to protect the occupant, passengers travelling aboard the H160 enjoy complete peace of mind and confidence.
Speed, comfort and technology make the twin-engine H175 an asset for executive transport, while the most spacious cabin in its class offers separate seating zones to indulge passengers from takeoff to landing.
Airbus helicopters are ideal sightseeing aircraft, offering aerial views of some of Earth’s natural and man-made wonders – including the US Hawaiian Islands and Grand Canyon, national parks and reserves around the globe, and over such cities as New York and Las Vegas.
The single-engine?Ecureuil/AStar family?has been the go-to rotorcraft for professional tour operations since the 1980s, favoured for its smooth ride and low external noise and vibration levels.
Building on its experience with tour operators, Airbus set a new benchmark with the?H130,?whose open cabin design and nearly 75 square feet of windows affords a sweeping 180-degree view. The H130 offers significantly greater personal space for its seven passengers, enabling a first class experience with three premium seats and rear theatre-style seating. Earning its “Eco-Star” nickname, the H130’s environmentally-friendly low sound signature is further improved by the use of Airbus’ Fenestron? shrouded tail rotor system.
