Liebherr-Aerospace has received an order from Airbus Helicopters to supply heating valves for its H160 helicopter programme, the company announced on 9 February.

Liebherr will develop, qualify and manufacture the environmental control system components, and also service them.

Two valves will be fitted in each helicopter to provide hot air to the cabin, allowing crew to adjust the temperature inside the cabin and to demist window panes of the helicopter.

These valves are made up of light-weight aluminium and contribute to the optimisation of the helicopter’s operating costs.
