As Head of Engineering and Chief Technical Officer at Airbus Helicopters, no detail is too small in the quest for improved safety and performance.
My vision of excellence applies to each and every stage of an individual aircraft’s life – from concept and design to development, manufacture and assembly of every helicopter the company produces. My team ensures thorough and ongoing direct support to the safe operations of the company’s helicopters in all missions across the globe. And constant innovation ensures that the latest design and engineering advances are incorporated at every level.
From cutting-edge aircraft design, to state-of-the-art systems and displays, Airbus Helicopters has developed a full range of technological improvements to increase safety. Our company’s reputation for prioritising safety and innovation has been built on an insistence that the most up-to-date advances in security, both in the air and on the ground, are incorporated into every one of its helicopters.

Airbus Helicopters continues to look towards the future with the H225, with an ongoing focus on quality assurance, innovation in vibration detection and design improvements to the main gear box (MGB).
New magnetic flow sensor
Airbus is working on implementing new technologies that will enable improved detection of spalling debris contained in the oil flow of the main gear box. The solution entails a magnetic plug to detect particles with a much higher degree of efficiency and effectiveness.
