FIRST FLIGHT OF THE SWEDISH ARMED FORCES NH90 HIGH CABIN VERSION

03/18/2005

NHIndustries and its Partner Companies, AgustaWestland – Eurocopter – Stork Fokker, are proud to announce that the first Swedish Armed Forces serial production NH90 took to the air today at the Eurocopter Marignane facility in France.


The flight started at 13:15 and lasted 55 minutes. The NH90 was flown by:
- Philippe BOUTRY experimental test pilot,
- Denis TRIVIER flight test engineer,
- Jean-Claude RABANY flight engineer.


This is the fourth serial production NH90 leaving the ground, following the NH90s for Germany, Finland and Italy.
Sweden has ordered a total of 18 NH90s, all of them fitted with the High Cabin, of which 13 will be dedicated to Tactical Troop Transport (TTT) / Search And Rescue (SAR) missions and 5 to Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) missions.
The first Swedish NH90 will now stay in Marignane to qualify the High Cabin version and perform the integration of the mission system required by the customer. Thanks to a strong and reliable partnership between NHIndustries and FMV (Swedish Defence Material Administration), this system developed by the Saab Group will be profitably fitted and qualified by Eurocopter.


In addition to the already well-known outstanding features of any standard NH90 (full Fly-By-Wire flight control system, full composite crashworthy airframe, full aircraft/avionics/mission system integration and state-of-the-art system suite available for multirole operation and multi-national cooperation in the modern military scenario), the Swedish NH90 introduces to the world the first high cabin version of the NH90. By adding 24 centimetres to the standard version cabin height, the NH90 High Cabin version offers a cargo volume increased by 2.5 additional cubic meters for a total of 17.50 cubic meters. Especially, the 1.82 m overall height allows any cabin crew (Surgeons, medics, loadmasters, etc.) to perform their mission within a highly comfortable environment, ensuring hence highest rates of success notably as for SAR activity.


The four assembly lines based in Agusta, Eurocopter (in France and in Germany) and Patria (the Finnish contractor for Nordic NH90s production) are day-by-day getting up new achievements to cope with the impressive logbook of the NH90 Programme in Europe and overseas, reaching now a gross total of 443 NH90 including the existing 86 options and the Australian selection for 12.

NHIndustries is proud to announce the first flight of two production NH90 helicopters happened in the same day:
- the first Italian Army NH90-TTH and

The Italian Army NH90 took-off on 15 September 2004 at 15.35 from Agusta facility in Vergiate airfield, lasting in flight 30 minutes, handled by Agusta test pilots Giuseppe Lococo and Giuseppe Afruni, and test engineers Stefano Rognoni and Michele Riccobono.

The Finnish Defence Forces NH90 took off nearly at the same time, lasting in flight more than one hour from the Eurocopter airfield in Marignane. The flight was performed by the Eurocopter test pilot Philippe Boutry and flight engineers Denis Trivier and Jean-Claude Rabany.

These two helicopters, together with the first NH90 for the German Army that celebrated the maiden flight last May in Donauwörth, Eurocopter Deutschland facility, feature the full fly-by-wire flight control system. NHIndustries feels privileged to remember that NH90 is today the only production helicopter flying such an advanced and performing control system in the world. In addition the NH90 features full composite crashworthy airframe, full aircraft/avionics/mission system integration, and the state-of-the-art system suite today available for multirole operation and multi-national cooperation in the modern military scenario.

The four assembly lines based in Agusta, Eurocopter, Eurocopter Deutschland, and Patria (the Finnish contractor for Nordic NH90s production) are day by day getting up new achievements to cope with the impressive logbook of the NH90 Programme which totals 357 orders and 86 options in Europe and overseas.

The contract has been signed on 24th July 2004 in Muscat by the Minister Responsible for Defence Affairs and the General Manager of NHIndustries (the company owned by Eurocopter (62,5%), Agusta (32%) and Stork Fokker (5,5%)).

The NH90 is equipped with full glass cockpit, Flight-by-Wire control system and advanced Automatic Flight Control System together with state-of-the-art Communication, Navigation and Mission Equipment. It features a fully composite crashworthy fuselage fitted with a rear ramp for higher flexibility.

The NH90 RAFO variant is perfectly tailored to the extreme environmental conditions of the Middle East region, being equipped with an enhanced power plant.

The multirole NH90, operated by the Royal Air Force of Oman (RAFO), will greatly strengthen the capability for Tactical Transport, Search and Rescue, Medevac and other utility military missions.

Thanks to its inherent multi-mission and all-weather/day-and-night performance the NH90 will give Oman Armed Forces unrivalled operation capability for the coming decades.
