Airbus Helicopters Delivers H135 for Off shore Operations to HTM in Germany

The fi rst H135 confi gured for off shore hoisting duties has been delivered to HTM Helicopter Travel Munich GmbH, marking a new milestone for the enhanced version of Airbus Helicopters’ lightweight rotorcraft previously known as the EC135 T3.

The H135 is well adapted to the full range of off shore operations, benefi tting from the helicopter’s excellent performance, especially in one engine inoperative (OEI) conditions. It fulfi lls all requirements for off shore missions, with equipment that includes a rescue hoist, an external life raft system, helicopter emergency egress lighting, automatically deployable emergency locator transmitter (ELT), three-axis autopilot, weather radar, underwater locator beacon, and emergency fl oatation system certifi ed for sea state 6. In addition, its outstanding

HTM will operate the H135 from its bases at Emden, Norden, Borkum and Helgoland, serving off shore windfarms in the German Bight (aka German Bay). HTM has meanwhile contracted 10 windfarms and customers like DONG, EWE, EON, Siemens, DOTI, ADWEN, and Senvion. The H135 joins HTM’s already extensive inventory of Airbus Helicopters-built rotorcraft that includes fi ve EC135 P2+ versions already based along the North Sea coastline, with the company’s fl eet growing to as many as 11 H135-family aircraft by early 2016.

inventory. With its increased OEI

performance and the additional equipment features off ered, it is the perfect complement to our existing fl eet complying already with future off shore requirements. The EC135 fl eet has proven its reliability and safety with a perfect availability static in off shore operation since 2009 having
