H145
One platform:
a full range of missions
The H145 provides a multitude of possibilities when it comes to deployment capability due
to its power, advanced mission equipment, small footprint and large cabin size.
H145
From entry-in-service, this helicopter is qualified for single
pilot/dual pilot operation, VFR-capable day and night, IFR,
night vision goggle compatibility, and excellent CAT A
performance levels.
Based on a platform that is recognized as a reference
worldwide, the H145 is perfectly suited for:
• Emergency medical services (EMS) missions
• Law enforcement/parapublic duties
A further choice of aircraft configurations allows unique
adaptability for a wide range of dedicated applications in:
• Business and commercial aviation
• Aerial work (windmill maintenance, firefighting…)
With its comprehensive state-of-the-art options,
incomparable performance levels and complementary
equipment for “quick role change,” the H145
is easily reconfigurable for such secondary missions as:
• Search and rescue
• Offshore/oil and gas passenger transport

H145
Unrivalled performance
> NEWLY-DESIGNED ENGINES
The H145 is equipped with two modern and powerful
Turbomeca Arriel 2E engines, each controlled by a fully
redundant dual channel Full Authority Digital Engine Control
(FADEC).
They provide outstanding performance in all engine operative
(AEO) operations, along with vital power reserves in one engine
inoperative (OEI) scenarios. Includes an OEI training mode.
> SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE
The H145 offers outstanding all engine operative (AEO)
performance, particularly in the most demanding
environments, with unrivalled Cat A operations up to Class 1
performance levels at maximum takeoff weight (ISA +20 from
SL up to 5,000 ft). The H145 has a unique take-off powerto-weight ratio that is 19% higher than the competition. It is
the only light twin choice for multi-role capabilities thanks to
the highly versatile "quick role change" concept of the cabin.
In compliance with EASA-OPS regulations, the H145 allows
Cat A operations up to Class 1 performance levels at full
maximum takeoff weight (ISA + 20°C, from Sea level up to
5,500 ft PA).
> UPGRADED MAIN GEAR BOX
The H145’s main gear box has been enhanced
to handle higher loads, and is certified for a 30-minute
dry-run capability.
H145
A new level of safety
The H145 is certified according to the latest FAR Part 29
airworthiness standards, setting the bar even higher when
it comes to in-flight and on-ground safety features.
With an advanced glass cockpit and avionics suite, as well
as a distinct combination of innovative and proven
technologies, the H145 reduces pilot workload and
provides the highest possible safety levels:
• Two fully-interchangeable (6 x 8-inch) multifunction displays
and a third 100% dedicated to Flight and Navigation systems
- for safety purposes. Each screen has autonomous
computation
• One central Vehicle Monitoring System providing engine
and vehicle data
• A color-coded warning and information concept
• A first limit indicator (FLI) to facilitate engine and
torque monitoring
• One integrated electronic standby instrument (IESI)
> THE H145 NOW HAS HELIONIX, THE INDUSTRYLEADING AVIONICS SUITE
Synthetic Vision System has been introduced, offering better
situational awareness and improved safety. Couple with the
Helionix moving map (DMAP) display and H-TAWS, the latest
evolution of the proven H145 platform offers unrivalled safety.
Further enhancements include SBAS RNP approaches
(WAAS, EGNOS…) provide better performance than with Meghas, e.g. the ability to on FAF approaches up to 45° with a
glide path angle of up to 10°. ADS-B out has also been introduced. Finally, H145 now offers a fully integrated HUMS.
> 360° SAFE APPROACHABILITY

H145
A “maintenance-friendly”
helicopter designed
to reduce operating costs
Building on Airbus Helicopters’ extensive experience gained
with the BK117/EC145 helicopter family, the H145’s
maintenance procedures optimize the intervals between
periodical inspections, providing for increased availability
and reduced operating costs.
The optional helicopter usage monitoring system (HUMS)
keeps track of the engine’s health in accordance with usage
conditions, resulting in further availability and enhanced
cost-effective maintenance.
Environmentally
friendly
Equipped with the Fenestron®
shrouded tail rotor – which
significantly reduces noise levels
– the H145 is the quietest helicopter
in its class.
H145
New standards of comfort
Designed for those who demand the best, the H145’s
business aviation configuration unites superior taste and
advanced technology for an unparalleled passenger
experience.
Passengers board easily via large sliding doors. Once inside
the sleek and stylish interior, they can make the most of the
uninterrupted view offered.
