Airbus Helicopters Japan Co., Ltd. has handed over the H135 equipped with the Heliconics to Mainichi Shimbun. To commemorate this, a new coverage helicopter safety prayer festival and a naming ceremony were held on the 28th in the daily newspaper company Haneda Hangar.
The aircraft will be added to three EC135 (now H135) aircraft owned by Mainichi Shimbun and will be launched as an AS350B update aircraft. The Mainichi Shimbun, in cooperation with joint news agency, started joint air interviews in 2010. A total of four H135 families (EC135 and H135) will be operated from April 2019, and the joint air coverage area will extend to the whole of Japan. In the future, it is expected to be active as a helicopter for airborne news gathering in Japan such as the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympic Games.
The new H135 has improved maneuverability and performs best in its class. Equipped with the latest avionics “Helionics”, the H135 has been able to respond flexibly to more tasks and has improved maneuvering agility.
Equipped with the latest technology, the H135 is a market-leading compact dual-purpose helicopter. We handle various tasks such as emergency care, police, business transport, military training and more.
