Air­bus H125s to be made in Ro­ma­nia; Bell 407GT goes poacher hunt­ing

Air­bus He­li­copters’ H175 is now op­er­a­tional in five coun­tries fol­low­ing de­liv­er­ies to op­er­a­tors in Den­mark and Mex­ico, join­ing those fly­ing in the Nether­lands, Scot­land and Ghana. Dan­ish op­er­a­tions be­gan in Au­gust with the Bel­gium-based NHV Group, which is us­ing the H175 for oil and gas trans­port mis­sions for Maersk Oil out of Es­b­jerg in the North Sea.

Mean­while, the first H175 on the Amer­i­can con­ti­nent has been de­liv­ered to Mex­i­can op­er­a­tor Trans­portes Aéreos Pe­gaso (TAP), which pro­vides air trans­port ser­vices for the en­ergy in­dus­try in the Gulf of Mex­ico. A sec­ond H175 will be de­liv­ered to TAP in 2017. The com­pany has a fleet of more than thirty Air­bus he­li­copters, and has signed an agree­ment for ten H145s, for which it will be among the first Latin Amer­i­can op­er­a­tors. Cus­tomers world­wide have or­dered more than 100 H175s. The first VIP ver­sion was de­liv­ered re­cently, while the pub­lic ser­vices SAR, EMS and law en­force­ment ver­sions will reach the mar­ket in late 2017.
