Airbus Helicopter H145’s New 5 Bladed Rotor


Designed to deliver excellent performance throughout the flight envelope, Airbus’ H145 is the latest member of the company’s four-tonne-class twin-engine rotorcraft product range – with designed-in mission capability and flexibility, especially in high and hot operating conditions. Compact in size, this helicopter’s small footprint and large, flexible cabin make it the aircraft of choice for a variety of civil and military missions.

The H145 offers exceptional performance thanks to its two Safran Arriel 2E power plants, each managed by a dual full-authority digital engine control (FADEC), along with the helicopter’s upgraded main and tail rotor systems. This guarantees an unprecedented level of performance in all engines operative (AEO) operations and vital power reserves in one engine inoperative (OEI) scenarios.

The H145 is the only rotorcraft of its range to take off and land at 20,000 ft – a distinction confirmed in September 2019 with a flight over Aconcagua in the Andes Mountain range (22,840 ft) – where the H145 demonstrated its incomparable power reserve at high altitude.


Twin-engine reliability is complemented by a fully separated fuel supply system, a duplex hydraulic system, dual electrical system and redundant lubrication for the main transmission.
