Offshore German operator Helicopter Travel Munich (HTM) has signed for one H145 rotorcraft. The helicopter is set for delivery in December 2017 and will operate from HTM bases at Emden, Norden, Borkum and Helgoland, serving offshore windfarms in the German Bight.

The operator already has 11 H135-family aircraft in its fleet, as well as BK117, AS355 and AS350 types.

“Since 2009, when we started offshore wind operations with the H135, we have found Airbus Helicopters to be a very reliable partner and we are happy to continue this partnership with the H145,” remarks MD Bernd Brucherseifer. “We believe that the H145 is the right helicopter to respond to the increasing demand for hoisting helicopters with larger transport capacity and dual pilot operation, especially for windfarms that are far out to sea.”

The H145 is said to perform favourably in very windy conditions and has wide sliding doors on both sides.
