Royal Thai Air Force orders four more H225Ms

Airbus Helicopters has secured an additional order of four H225M multirole utility helicopters from the Royal Thai Air Force (RTAF).

Airbus Helicopters has secured an additional order of four H225M (previously known as EC725) multirole utility helicopters from the Royal Thai Air Force (RTAF), as part of its fleet reinforcement programme.

This follow-on order will bring the RTAF’s H225M fleet to 12 units by 2021. Deliveries of RTAF H225Ms started in 2015.

Specially equipped with emergency flotation gear, fast roping, cargo sling, search light and electro-optical systems, these four new multirole H225M helicopters will join RTAF’s existing fleet of six H225Ms for combat search and rescue missions, search and rescue flights and troop transport operations.

The air force will also be receiving two H225Ms from an earlier order, by the end of this year.

This latest contract will also cover on-site technical support and continuing airworthiness management organisation services, supported by Airbus’ Thailand team.
