Airbus Helicopters has received an order from an undisclosed Canadian customer to supply an ACH160 helicopter with a custom-made interior, Airbus announced on 6 March.

The medium twin-engine H160 is the first member of the H generation. The aircraft’s enlarged windshield, lateral and floor level, combined with cameras offer increased external visibility to pilots. The helicopter features a four-axis autopilot and Helionix avionics suite.

Romain Trapp, president of Airbus Helicopters Canada, said: ‘We are proud to announce the sale of the first H160 in Canada where we have seen strong interest in this game-changing aircraft. The H160 has received considerable attention from private and business aviation, air medical services, and passenger transport operators.

‘The H160’s breakthrough design, low sound levels, smooth flight at high speeds and the product maturity at entry into service, meet and often exceed the premium standards set by operators in high-demand markets.’
