NHI attends the 50th edition of the Paris Air Show with an Italian Army NH90 Helicopter.
This new generation helicopter belongs to the famous “ 7° VEGA “ unit based in Rimini and specialized in tranport and combat operations.
The NH90 TTH will be displayed on NHI static area E216.
“We are pleased to attend this edition of the Paris Air Show, one of the most important aerospace and defence exhibition” declared Xavier Poupardin Delegated Managing Director of NHIndustries.
“The NH90 helicopter started its operational carreer with several customers throughout the world, and the first return on experience is very positive, we are all proud to work right next to our customer and support them in their operations.
This modern helicopter we are displaying is demonstrating every day its efficiency on several fields of operation. “ added Xavier Poupardin.
The NH90 is the optimal choice for modern operations thanks to its large full composite airframe, its excellent power to weight ratio; and its wide range of rôle equipment. It features a redundant Fly-by-Wire flight control system for reduced Pilot’s workload and enhanced flight characteristics.
The NH90 is proposed in two main variants, one dedicated to naval operations, the NH90NFH (Nato Frigate Helicopter) and a Tactical Transport Variant for land based operations. As of today, around 150 helicopters have been delivered in Naval and Tactical transport variants. They are in service in Germany, France, Italy, The Netherlands, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Greece, Oman, Australia and New Zealand.
The twin-engine, medium-size NH90 helicopter program is managed by the consortium NHIndustries, the Company owned by AgustaWestland SpA (32%), Eurocopter (62.5%), and Stork Fokker (5.5%).
