FIDAE 2016: Latin America = One Key Market for Airbus Helicopter

Airbus Helicopters showcases three rotorcraft from its light helicopter range: An H125 in its utility version, an H130 for private and business transport, and one H145 configured for law enforcement missions. Airbus Helicopters has 1,450 helicopters in Latin American service, accounting for 31% of the region’s operating fleet.

Latin America is one of Airbus’s key markets, and the group employs nearly 1,000 people, at 17 sites across seven countries (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, El Salvador, Mexico, and Peru). Airbus is a valued partner of Chile’s Armed Forces, with 12 light and medium military transport aircraft, in theconfigurations C212, CN235, and C295, in operation.
