The H160, as a next generation medium twin-engine aircraft, powered by Arrano engines, was designed to be a modular helicopter to address missions ranging from offshore transporta­tion, private and business aviation, emergency medical services and public services. In July 2020, the H160 was granted its type certificat­e by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). Its entry into service is planned 2021. First deliveries of the equally modular military version, the H160M, or ‘Guépard’ as it is known in the French armed forces is planned for 2026. Both cleaner and quieter, the H160 takes a step forward in respect for the environmen­t.
