The H145’s compact footprint, unobstructed cabin and flat floor lend themselves to a full range of applications, accommodating:
This multi-purpose rotorcraft is tailored for emergency medical services and law enforcement duties, along with aerial work, passenger transport - including private and business aviation - and offshore operations. For multi-mission operators, the H145 can be reconfigured for different roles quickly and easily.
2020 sees EIS of a new innovative version of the H145, equipped with a five-bladed main rotor. The H145 extends its transport capability and provides operators with an excellent smoothness of flight.
Designed to deliver excellent performance throughout the flight envelope, Airbus’ H145 is the latest member of its 4-ton-class twin-engine rotorcraft product range – with designed-in mission capability and flexibility, especially in high and hot operating conditions. Compact in size, this helicopter’s small footprint and large, flexible cabin make it the aircraft of choice for a variety of civil or military missions.
The H145 offers exceptional performance thanks to Safran Helicopter engines Arriel 2E power plant and dual full-authority digital engine control (FADEC) – along with the helicopter’s upgraded main and tail rotor systems. This guarantees an unprecedented level of performance in both hover and one-engine inoperative (OEI) conditions.
The H145 is the only aircraft of its range to take off and land at 20,000 ft, a distinction it confirmed in September 2019 over Aconcagua (22,840 ft), where it demonstrated its incomparable power reserve.
The Fenestron technology brings benefits such as improved flight and ground safety to customers, as well as enhanced anti-torque control efficiency, reduced power demand in forward flight, and lower sound and vibration levels.
The Fenestron also has a redesigned tail gearbox that contributes to lower maintenance costs. It incorporates a duplex tail rotor actuator and dual hydraulic circuits – installed in a damage-tolerant all-composite tail boom.
Airbus’ Helionix® avionics suite, connected to the wireless Airborne Communication Server (wACS), provides undisputed superiority for in-flight envelope protection, pilot assistance and time savings for data transfer which, along with situational awareness, results in unprecedented flight safety levels. Meeting the latest international avionics standards, Helionix integrates an innovative alerting and self-monitoring system. Meeting the latest international avionics standards, the Helionix installation integrates an innovative alerting and self-monitoring system.
Additionally, the H145 is equipped with an advanced dual-duplex, 4-axis autopilot specifically designed for helicopters.
Building on Airbus’ extensive experience from the H145 family, the new H145’s maintenance procedures optimise the intervals between periodic inspections, ensuring increased availability and reduced operating costs.
The optional health monitoring system with usage monitoring system (HUMS) keep track of the engine’s health in accordance with usage conditions, resulting in further availability and enhanced, cost-effective maintenance.
