Five seats for passenger transport

The two pilot/five passenger configuration is well suited to passenger transport operations. A combination of rear- and forward-facing seating create an environment conducive to conversation or work. A high-density seating configuration is also available and can accommodate up to 6/7 passengers.

HEMS

 

HEMS H135

Various configurations for helicopter emergency medical services are possible, depending on operators’ needs. A sample layout of two pilots, stretcher, and two medical attendants leaves sufficient space to administer care and easily load/unload the patient. 

Police surveillance

Police surveillance

Several configurations are possible for public service and surveillance operations. A typical layout of two pilots and an onboard operator at the console of an electro-optical system leaves cabin space free for cargo or additional equipment. 

Training

Training

The two-pilot and three-passenger layout of a sample training configuration lends itself to easy in-flight instruction. Three forward-facing seats just behind the pilots give students or observers an up-close view of the cockpit environment.
