Expanding current fleet to 25 Airbus helicopters
Las Vegas, Airbus Helicopters and Helicopter Travel Munich (HTM) have signed an agreement at Heli-Expo for the purchase of four H125s, completing a fleet of 25 Airbus helicopters.
“We have selected the H125 for its superior performance especially in mountainous areas and hot climates” said Hans Ostler, CEO of HTM. “We are excited to put this helicopter into operation for a number of missions including passenger transport, aerial work, filming and photo shoots, and fire-fighting,” he added.
“We are proud that HTM has renewed their trust in Airbus Helicopters’ products since the delivery of the H145 in November last year” said Dennis Bernitz, Head of Sales Central Europe at Airbus Helicopters. “I am sure that HTM will appreciate the advantages of the new G500 glass cockpit that offers pilots with a highly visible and customisable instrument panel and the aircraft’s reduced maintenance costs thanks to recent modifications made to the maintenance plan” he added.
Helicopter Travel Munich is one of the largest helicopter companies in Germany with IFR and Offshore approval as well as its own flying school. HTM operates 25 helicopters at 6 locations, flying more than 5000 hour a year performing missions such as firefighting, heliskiing, offshore wind, cargo flights, aerial work, VIP Flights, HEMS Flights, film and photo shoots, as well as training flights for basic and advanced pilots.
With built-in manoeuvrability, excellent visibility and low vibrations levels in the cabin, the H125 has earned its reputation as a true multi-mission workhorse, becoming a common sight at heliports, hospital landing pads, police department operation centres and airports around the world. The H125’s elegant new cabin has a flat floor that can be quickly and easily reconfigured for various mission types, including aerial work, firefighting, law enforcement, search and rescue, and passenger transport.
