Airbus Helicopters Inc. will offer the Airbus H135 helicopter as the solution for the US Navy’s planned helicopter trainer replacement program. An H135 demonstrator aircraft in Navy trainer markings is on display from 14-18 May at the 2018 Naval Helicopter Association Symposium in Norfolk, Va. “The H135 is a market leading twin-engine, multi-mission helicopter performing the primary training mission for some of the finest militaries in the world,” said Chris Emerson, President of Airbus Helicopters Inc. and Head of the North America Region. “As a twin-engine helicopter, the H135 provides a training environment most similar to the Navy’s warfighting rotorcraft fleet, creating opportunities for cost and operational synergies compared to a single engine trainer.”
