The Bavarian Police in Germany has received its first upgraded H135s, which are benefitting from a manufacturer-installed retrofit package that improves operating performance and handling qualities. Three of the law enforcement agency’s eight helicopters have completed the process and are already in service, with the remaining five to be converted and delivered during the upcoming months. Included in the retrofit package is an enlarged main rotor with improved blade profiles, the transfer of front-mounted engine air intakes to a lateral position, augmented engine capacities and an extension of the horizontal stabiliser’s span and removal of its endplates, while the tail skid is replaced with a mini bumper.
