Airbus Helicopters has delivered four H125 helicopters to the Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources (NSDNR) for SAR, forestry programmes, aerial surveys and firefighting missions, the company announced on 26 June.

The delivery completes NSDNR’s air fleet renewal programme.

The H125's lifting power capacity, endurance and manoeuvrability are well suited for rigorous hot and high missions and swing operations. The H125s are equipped with a glass cockpit, floor window, high-visibility doors, cable cutters, cargo mirror and cargo pods. The helicopter will allow the NSDNR to double its water carrying capacity when fighting wildfires.

Margaret Miller, Minister of Natural Resources, Nova Scotia, said: ‘The Airbus H125 helicopter is made for the extreme environmental conditions our team often operates under and provides us the level of performance and safety we require.

‘The addition of these new helicopters will assist our team in providing increased support for the vast resources of Nova Scotia, including the ability to access remote areas quickly, providing support during weather events and managing resources more efficiently.’

NSDNR’s mandate is to develop, manage, conserve and protect forest, mineral, parks and wildlife resources, in addition to the administration of the province's land.
