Noordzee Helicopters Vlaanderen (NHV) has ordered six more Airbus Helicopters EC175s, increasing its acquisitions of the new-generation rotorcraft to 16. NHV is an EC175 launch customer, booking its first contract for 10 of the mid-sized, twin-engine helicopters in 2012.
We – NHV and our customers – having experienced the EC175’s performance first-hand, have full confidence in the helicopter’s capability to meet NHV’s operational needs and in Airbus Helicopters’ ability to deliver on its program commitments,” said NHV CEO Eric Van Hal. “This second EC175 acquisition also continues our strategy of owning and operating a young fleet with the most modern systems, which enhances NHV’s mission capabilities and contributes to safe operations. Following the EC175’s recent certification, we look forward to the start-up of deliveries with this latest member of Airbus Helicopters’ product line in the heavier mid-sized rotorcraft category.
