                        The H160 opens a new chapter in the history of Airbus. Joining the helicopter product range between the H145 and the H175, this innovative medium helicopter is the first member of the H generation. The entire design was based on one overriding goal: to create added value for customers in terms of performance, economic competitiveness, safety and comfort. Both cleaner and quieter, the H160 takes a step forward in respect for the environment.  The H160’s entry into service is planned for 2020.

                        Configurations being developed include offshore transportation, commercial passenger transport, emergency medical services, business and private aviation (known as the ACH160), and public services.

                        Innovation for a new experience

                        Innovation was built into the H160 from its design phase, resulting in a new usage and management approach while increasing safety and cost-effectiveness. The passenger experience is enhanced as well, due to a host of innovations. The aircraft provides a smooth ride thanks to an increase in volume per passenger compared to other medium-twin helicopters. Larger windows create the brightest cabin in its class, while the low internal vibration level and sound isolation mean passengers can fly more comfortably.        

                        Simple and intuitive to fly and maintain

                        A high level of automation, associated with the unrivalled visibility of the cockpit, makes the H160 easy to fly. With top-notch automation, huge margins, and the industry’s first computerized helicopter flight manual, pilot performance and safety are increased.

                        3D technical publications and easy troubleshooting tools give maintenance technicians the information to maintain this aircraft to the highest standards, even far from the maintenance base. Equipment locations have been optimised for accessibility, while easy access to the large upper deck, engine access through a firewall panel, and easy removal of engine and main gearbox cowlings are among the H160’s innovations.

                        Digital documentation and continuity used on the multi-platform ground segment are adapted to fleet management needs, from dispatch and airworthiness management to training. With its light maintenance plan aligned between engine and aircraft, the H160 offers optimised operating costs and a new standard in availability.

                        Safety enhancer

                        In following the IOGP’s (International Association of Oil & Gas Producers) stringent operational standards, the H160 conforms to, and in some cases exceeds, the latest safety certification requirements.

                        The H160 is equipped with the most modern safety equipment, including Sea State 6 emergency floatation features and windows that exceed EASA Type IV emergency egress size requirements, plus easy push-out windows and seating that ensure a maximum of two passengers per exit per row.

                        Missions

                        Oil and gas

                        The H160 can access a large number of offshore platforms thanks to its 15.7-metre D-value (largest dimension of the helicopter used for helideck assessment).

                        To avoid unnecessary returns to base, the H160 relies on an embedded monitoring system and a redundancy of sensors. When designing the H160, particular emphasis was placed on corrosion robustness, specifically for O&G missions over the sea

                        Accommodating changes of configuration, the H160’s 12-passenger seating staggers three rows of four seats, while passengers are just one seat from an exit. The H160 is the best compromise between performance and competitiveness. 

                        EMS

                        The H160 was designed to answer the needs of the emergency medical service industry for primary and secondary EMS missions.

                        Patient comfort is key, with limited vibration even at maximum speed, a flat attitude, a fully equipped and spacious cabin, powerful air conditioning, and reduced downwash during patient loading and unloading.

                        The cabin is set up with two wide and tall cabin doors to ease patient loading and unloading. The very low level of internal perceived sound allows for better communication between crew members without headsets. Everything the medical crew needs is at hand, as the cargo compartment can be accessed while in flight.

                        Airbus works with a wide range of EMS outfitters for the interior cabin layout.  Depending on the EMS kit, the cabin can accommodate several configurations, seating arrangements, stretcher models and medical material.

                        Private and business aviation

                        To differentiate its approach to private and business aviation, Airbus Helicopters has introduced Airbus Corporate Helicopters – ACH – its exclusive offer providing an end-to-end service-based ownership experience.

                        ACH provides an exclusive platform from which customers can experience best-in-class corporate and VIP transport solutions, tailored completion and service. ACH ensures that only the highest quality materials and the best craftsmanship are on offer to customers.

                        Advancements in air conditioning technology allow for precise temperatures to be selected, while the flight experience is greatly upgraded with optimal cabin air quality and lighting designed to reduce fatigue (ACH160 Exclusive).

                        Twelve seats for oil and gas transport

                        The two-pilot and twelve seat configuration is suited to offshore oil and gas operations, with aisle-seated passengers as close as one seat from an exit. 

                        EMS

                        A variety of configuration options make the H160 uniquely suited to EMS operations. Depending on the EMS kit, the cabin can be arranged with one or two stretchers, in longitudinal or transversal positions.

                        Ten seats for VIP transport

                        When configured for one or two pilots and up to ten passengers, the ACH160 is the epitome of in-flight comfort. Large windows, minimal cabin sound, and optimal lighting aimed to reduce fatigue, all make for a quiet and comfort flight experience.
