The H135’s (formerly known as EC135) high endurance and extended range enables this helicopter to perform a full range of mission requirements, while carrying more payload over longer distances than any twin-engine aircraft in its class. The H135’s superior payload-range performance offers an impressive 3,303 lb in useful load.
Incorporating a modern cockpit and avionics – as well as Airbus Helicopters’ Fenestron tail rotor and bearingless main rotor – the H135 is recognized for its high performance and outstanding maneuverability. As one of the quietest helicopters in its class, the H135 is approximately 7 db below ICAO standards. This level represents a perceivable noise reduction of approximately 50 percent compared to older-generation helicopters in the same category – which is of particular importance to customers regularly flying over cities and in densely-populated areas, including emergency medical services and law enforcement agencies.
