Airbus Helicopters has marked the milestone delivery of the 1300th helicopter from the H135 family on 29 January 2018.

To date the lightweight twin-engine helicopter worldwide fleet has accumulated a total of more than 4.5 million flight hours. The aircraft operates in 60 countries, carrying out a range of roles including emergency medical services, law enforcement, corporate transport, offshore wind and military flight training.

The aircraft has continued to evolve since its entry into service in 1996; most recently Airbus Helicopters' Helionix avionics suite was integrated in 2016. The intuitive avionics system incorporates a four-axis-autopilot – already in use with the H175 and H145 - further reduces pilot workload and provides advanced safety levels.
