June 2, 2015 marked a milestone for Airbus Helicopters, having delivered four brand new H130 aircrafts to world renowned heli – tourism operators Niagara Helicopters.
Having the opportunity to not only manufacture but deliver multiple aircraft in a very short period of time and, to have these helicopters be used exclusively in the Niagara region, is a significant accomplishment for both companies. This new found partnership was celebrated in the presence of local dignitaries, media and both Airbus and Niagara employees.
The H130 is the quietest helicopter on the market: Its Fenestron tail rotor and automatic variable speed control result in a significantly reduced external sound level which has set the standards for tour operations worldwide. The H130 is a intermediate single – engine helicopter equipped with all of the latest in aircraft technology. It has a roomy modular cabin that can accommodate one pilot plus up to seven passengers.
We are looking forward to seeing these new H130’s flying in and around the region for sightseeing operations, charter flights, aerial surveillance, film and photography, external loads and other specialty flying.
