The H135 (formerly known as the EC135 T3/P3) is a member of Airbus Helicopters' light-medium EC135 family of helicopters.
Today around 1,100 twin-engine EC135s have been delivered and are in service in nearly 60 countries. With nearly 300 operators, these versatile aircraft have together flown more than 3.25 million hours.
The H130 is one of the quietest helicopters in its class, the H135’s noise footprint is markedly lower than older-generation helicopters in the same category. This matters most to customers who regularly fly over cities and in densely populated areas, for corporate transportation, emergency medical services and police duties.
Fitted with a bearingless main rotor, Airbus Helicopters’ signature Fenestron® shrouded tail rotor, engine software modifications, and a new lateral air intake, the H135 provides additional payload and delivers best-in-class performance throughout its flight envelope.
Two FADEC-equipped engine options are available on the helicopter: Turbomeca’s Arrius 2B2PLUS and Pratt & Whitney Canada’s PW206BB. Both of these reliable turboshaft powerplants provide outstanding performance and vital power reserves – even in one-engine inoperative scenarios – along with low fuel consumption.
Safety is additionally enhanced by the increased power of the H135’s engines (Turbomeca’s Arrius 2B2PLUS and the Pratt & Whitney Canada’s PW206BB).
Optional single- or dual-pilot IFR avionics suites ensure reliability in the most demanding weather conditions, which is appreciated in missions such as airlift flights to offshore oil and gas platforms, as well as utility/aerial work duties that include servicing offshore wind turbines.
