The aircraft features state-of-the-art Helionix avionics, large cabin windows, a large windshield and further automatic functions, allowing the pilot to concentrate on the mission.
Mesrob Karalekian, Head of Latin America at Airbus Helicopters, said: “We are proud to announce the first sale of an H160 in Latin America where it has a lot of potential as we have been seeing a lot of interest in the aircraft [...] It is easy to see why the H160 appeals to private and business aviation customers as it is not only stylish but its cutting edge technology offers passengers an elegant, safe and extremely comfortable way to travel.”

The manufacturer presents its single-engine helicopters H125 and H130, the medium H155 and also light twin-engine helicopters such as H135 and H145. Furthermore, Airbus Helicopters will deliver the first H145 for a Chilean operator during the air show.
