Helionix H135 passes muster in Canada
With more than 300 operators and 1,350 helicopters across the globe, the H135 fleet has accumulated more than five million total flight hours. Its Helionix avionics-equipped variant is highly sought after.
EMS and law enforcement are two of the H135's specialisms.

The latest evolution of the Airbus Helicopters H135 fitted with Helionix has received Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) certification. Helionix, the avionics system designed by Airbus, is designed to offer operators increased mission flexibility and safety.

“The H135 has proven itself to be one of the most reliable aircraft on the market”, says Dwayne Charette, president and COO of Airbus Helicopters Canada. “This recent certification now allows us to deliver the H135 with the latest technologies to our customers, providing them the ideal combination of power, safety and manoeuvrability.”

Known for its endurance, versatility and cost-competitiveness, the H135 is well suited for a wide range of missions including emergency medical services (EMS), law enforcement, corporate transport, and ab initio and advanced military pilot training.

The H135's Helionix avionics suite includes a glass cockpit and a four-axis autopilot. Designed with three large electronic displays, the cockpit is night vision goggle compatible and includes a first limit indicator that highlights the appropriate engine instrument data for the pilot in one indicator. The H135's advanced cockpit improves pilots' situational awareness, and the high-set main rotor and Fenestron shrouded tail rotor enhance operational safety.

The H135 comes, says Airbus, with low operating and maintenance costs. It is designed to provide enhanced mission capability along with simplified and reliable maintainability. The IFR certified twin-engine helicopter can land almost anywhere, particularly in high and hot conditions, while carrying more payload over longer distances than other rotorcraft in its category.

With more than 300 operators and 1,350 helicopters across the globe, the H135 fleet has accumulated more than five million total flight hours.
