Helibras, Brazilian subsidiary of Airbus Helicopters, delivered to the Brazilian Navy, this past Friday (28), the first H135 model, with multi-mission configuration. The helicopter had already been presented at the event of 103 years of Naval Aviation, in August this year. The aircraft will be integrated into the 1st General Employment Helicopter Squadron (HU-1) and will be based in São Pedro da Aldeia.
The aircraft is part of a contract to supply three H135s, which will carry out various missions such as cargo transportation, naval inspection, search and rescue and aeromedical rescue, among others.
“Naval Aviation has been dedicated for more than a century to the protection of Brazil’s borders, especially the Blue Amazon and we are very grateful to be able to contribute to this story since the delivery of the first Brazilian Squirrel, the N7050, 41 years ago, which is still in operation today. We are sure that the H135 will continue to fulfill the demanding missions made by the Brazilian Navy. ”, Comments Jean-Luc Alfonsi, president of Helibras.
Currently, about 130 units of the H135 are in operation by the navies of several countries such as Germany, Australia, Spain, Japan and the United Kingdom.
