Pilot - - ROTORHEADS -

Air­bus He­li­copters has in­tro­duced an op­tional 3,800kg Al­ter­nate Gross Weight (AGW) for the H145 which en­ables op­er­a­tors to take off with up to 100kg more use­ful load. The in­crease is linked to a tem­po­rary re­stricted flight en­ve­lope un­til 100kg of fuel has been con­sumed, ap­prox­i­mately twenty min­utes after take­off, and re­quires log­ging of AGW times ‘with a slight im­pact on di­rect main­te­nance costs,’ the manufactur­er says.

Axel Humpert, Air­bus He­li­copters’ Head of H145 Pro­gramme said, “The new AGW is a sig­nif­i­cant in­crease for a light-twin he­li­copter… of­fer­ing the pos­si­bil­ity to carry, for ex­am­ple, more fuel, mis­sion equip­ment or pas­sen­gers.”

With a hike in AGW to 3.8 tonnes, the H145’s use­ful goes up by 100kg
