Heli-Expo 2017: H175’s blizzard of milestones

Several certifications and goals have recently been met on the H175 programme, including cold weather conditions and take-off weight increases, but Airbus Helicopters is focused on the delivery of the Hong Kong Government Flying Service’s (HKGFS) fleet over the next 18 months. The H175 oil & gas and VIP versions are certified in Russia, and they have also been launched in Malaysia, Hong Kong and Mexico. Pegaso Mexico took the oil and gas version a month later and the HKGFS will be the first recipient of the public service configuration this year.
