Airbus Helicopters gears up for China Helicopter Expo 2017
Airbus Helicopters will be displaying China’s first HEMS configured H135, the H130, the H160 virtual experience and HCare digital solutions.
This year’s edition of the biennial China Heli-Expo show takes place in Tianjin from 14th to 17th September.
Airbus Helicopters will be displaying China’s first HEMS configured H135, the H130, the H160 virtual experience and HCare digital solutions. The company is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its presence in China, which last year became its largest civil market in terms of annual orders booked.
The Airbus Helicopters stand will feature China’s very first Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS)-configured H135, operated by Beijing 999 Emergency Rescue Centre, and an HEMS-configured H130 operated by Shandong MIT Group.
Several Chinese-operated H125s will also be on display during the show. At the end of 2016, the in-service Ecureuil fleet reached 100 in China, becoming the largest fleet of a single helicopter type in the country.
Show-visitors will also have an opportunity to try out the interactive H160 virtual experience to learn more about the H160’s multiple configurations and performances.
The show display also includes an HCare counter presenting the company’s commitment to supporting customers in training, maintenance, technical support, fleet management, and mission preparation.
