Today, Airbus Helicopters made a lasting footprint in the Baltic region by introducing the first H125 to Latvia and the H130 to Estonia. An undisclosed operator in Latvia has placed an order for a H125 light helicopter with delivery scheduled for spring of 2017. Additionally, the first H130 light helicopter has recently been delivered to OG Elektra, a retail company located in Estonia that intends to use the H130 for business and private aviation.
“We are pleased that these operators have put their confidence and support in Airbus Helicopters as the first in Latvia and Estonia to acquire these rotorcrafts,” stated Olivier Michalon, Senior Vice President and Head of Europe Region. “The Ecureuil family has proven its performance capabilities time and time again. It’s yet another example of our commitment to provide quality products to our customers and we look forward to further cooperation opportunities in these countries.”
The H125 will be the first aircraft of its kind to operate in Latvia and the Baltic States region, making it an important milestone for the H125 programme.
The H125 and H130 are members of Airbus Helicopters' renowned and proven Ecureuil family. More than 5,000 single-engine Ecureuils have been delivered in over 100 countries to approximately 2,000 operators. Together, these rotorcrafts have accumulated more than 30 million flight hours in a variety of missions around the world, thanks to their unrivalled multi-mission capabilities.
