GHS launches rugged H225 for humanitarian work

Global Helicopter Service (GHS) based in Germany has entered its first 19-passenger H225 into service after adding it to the company AOC. The type, the newest member of the Super Puma family, joins a fleet of three Bell 212/412s, all of which are currently deployed in Nigeria for the World Food Programme. It was ferried from France to Germany via Italy, enabling GHS to demonstrate its capability to clients.

The H225 is immediately available for short and long-term work. "For those operators looking for an immediate cost-effective medium or heavy lift solution for their utility on and offshore, peacekeeping or humanitarian programme needs, we have the solution," states customer relations manager Ursula Poecklhofer. "The twin-engine H225 is synonymous with providing a rugged and reliable solution for operators in harsh environments throughout the world and it is the proven choice of those who demand a high degree of flexibility coupled with affordable operating costs. Whether you need to transport passengers, freight or external loads, the H225 takes all scenarios in its stride."
