Airbus Helicopters celebrated two important flight-hour milestones with the German Bundeswehr at ILA Berlin 2014.
The German Bundeswehr has attained 10,000 flight hours with its Tiger UHT. As of today, 34 Tiger helicopters have been delivered to the German Armed Forces, 12 of them in ASGARD configuration for deployment in Afghanistan.
In a separate ceremony, Airbus Helicopters honored the German Bundeswehr’s successful cooperation and achievement of 1,500 flight hours with the upgraded CH53-GA fleet. Colonel Best from the German Armed Forces praised the extraordinary capabilities of the upgraded CH53-GA, which is very rare in its weight class.
Airbus Helicopters is upgrading the Bundeswehr’s CH-53 heavy-lift transport helicopters as part of a comprehensive product improvement program, which extends the fleet’s service life beyond 2030.
The contract includes the upgrade of 40 helicopters into the CH-53GA version and the delivery of training aids. To date, 16 CH-53GA have been delivered by Airbus Helicopters.
