20 years H135 - Benchmark of Today and Tomorrow

In 2016, Airbus Helicopters’ H135 light twin-engine helicopter celebrated its 20th anniversary. The successor of the B0105, the H135 is known for its modern design, built-in safety, and wide glass windows offering exceptional visibility, while the latest version can carry significantly higher payloads in hot and high environments. Watch this video featuring feedback from a range of customers, the H135’s former chief engineer, and the current head of the program, who reflect upon this helicopter success story, from its conception and entry into service, to its growth potential for the future.

AIRLIFT

Experts on ice: <br />Based in Norway, Airlift is an expert when it comes to icy conditions. In addition to aerial work, heavy lift and search and rescue services, the operator also helps investigate climate change and was even involved in a mission to Mars <br /> <br />Stretching out beneath the helicopter is a seemingly endless sheet of Arctic ice. Suddenly, a polar bear appears in the whirled up snow. The H125 helicopter from Airlift flies towards the animal. A passenger appears, aiming a rifle at the bear. A shot cracks above the noise of the rotors. The polar bear is hit but continues to run for a few more seconds before collapsing onto the ice. But the animal is not dead. It is just unconscious, shot with a tranquiliser rifle so that the scientists on board the helicopter could take blood samples and DNA probes to examine the grade of pollution in the arctic. This is just one of Airlift’s different services for scientific missions in Polar Regions – under the most extreme conditions. On a mission in the Antarctic in 2015 for example, an ice breaker with 30 scientists and the H125 on board was deliberately frozen into the ice of the Antarctic. The mission was to explore, among other things, the drift of ice and the pollution of air, water and ice. The scientists and helicopter crew spent six months on the ship. “These polar missions can be very difficult,” says Gunnar Svein Nordahl, who accompanies some of these expeditions as a technician. “But it is an important task, because the data we collect enables researchers to observe changes in the climate.” <br /> <br />Norway is known for its unforgiving climate: Violent storms, freezing temperatures, heavy rains and low visibility can quickly turn into a deadly danger. When tourists become lost in the ice or fishermen in the cold sea, help must come quickly and reliably. These are two characteristics that apply to the Super Puma AS332 from Airbus Helicopters. Airlift uses this model for search and rescue missions in the country’s challenging conditions. With this medium-size utility helicopter, the Airlift crew fights cold and ice, confirming the rotorcraft’s capabilities in even the most extreme environment. <br /> <br />Chasing James Bond <br />Not many people can claim that they have chased James Bond. The Airlift crew can. When James Bond, played by Pierce Brosnan, raced across an ice field during the filming of the Die Another Day movie, it wasn’t just the bad guy who was hotly in pursuit. Flying along behind the actors was the crew of the Norwegian helicopter operator, which provided the filming services.

Devon Air Ambulance’s H135s: Making a difference when every minute counts

The H135 play a critical medical transport role in the United Kingdom, being well-equipped to meet the specific needs of a medical-based mission. Devon Air Ambulance, a charity-based air ambulance service serving England’s south western county of Devon, has been flying missions since 1992 and purchased its first of two H135s in 2008. <br /> <br />“When we first bought the H135, we asked ourselves how we could best meet the needs of the patient,” says Nigel Hare, operations director at Devon Air Ambulance. “When responding to patients who are in life-threatening situations, it is essential that every aspect of our service provides the very best chance for the patient to survive. Every minute matters, so we need a reliable aircraft that is quick to deploy and has a fast cruise speed so that we can reach the patient and transfer them to hospital quickly, while also being smooth and stable in flight to prevent the patient’s condition from deteriorating,” says Hare. “The additional requirement of having an aircraft with sufficient endurance to enable us to respond to the next patient resulted in us choosing the H135.”

H135: Flying the Line with Wester Power Distribution

Western Power Distribution is a British energy company that provides electricity to nearly 8 million customers within a 55,500- square-kilometre area. The company uses the H135 as an aerial platform to survey its 220,000-kilometre-long network of power lines for faults and breakages. In 2015, the company’s helicopter unit flew almost 3,500 hours using five aircraft. Smooth, quiet and safe with a wide, unobstructed windshield, the H135 is hailed by both pilots and power line observers, who here share their favorite features of this helicopter.
