The H135M helicopter is equipped with energy-absorbing aircraft and a main rotor system without bearings. The boom tail integrates a fixed horizontal stabilizer and Fenestron anti-torque device. New rotor blades and lateral air intakes produce higher lift for helicopters.

The helicopter also integrates energy-absorbing seats and accident-resistant fuel cells. Under-fuselage is equipped with a slip type landing gear with slip protection, while the unobstructed cabin and cargo compartment offers a storage volume of 5.9 m³.

H135M helicopter has a length of 12.26 m, width of 3.16 m (without blades) and height of 3.51 m. The helicopter's main rotor diameter is 10.40 m and the maximum takeoff weight is 2.980 kg.

Advanced helicopter technology allows instructors to carry out training missions in optimal safety conditions. The high fuel economy of rotorcraft further ensures low operating and training costs.

Airbus H135M Engine

The H135M helicopter is powered by two turboshaft Pratt & Whitney Canada PW206B3 or Turbomeca Arrius 2B2 plus engines. Each engine model features a full authority digital engine control system (FADEC) and a high-speed protection system. Fuel is supplied from the main bladder type fuel tank and supply tank.

H135M has a maximum cruise speed of 278km / h and can reach a maximum range of 609km. The helicopter's maximum operating height is 20,000 feet. This helicopter produces an OEI performance of one superior engine, even in hot and high conditions.

Airbus H135M Cockpit and Avionics

The sophisticated H135M glass cockpit displays three large electronic screens. This accommodates two crew members side by side. Cockpit compatible night-vision goggle (NVG) also combines the first limit indicator, which displays engine operational data based on the flight phase for pilots in one indicator. The innovative cockpit layout offers increased situational awareness, mission flexibility and security.

The H135M helicopter integrated with the Helionix cockpit has just received a certificate of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) in November 2016. The avionics suite is certified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in February 2018.

The Helionix avionics system in combination with a four-axis automatic flight control system (AFCS) minimizes pilot workload. A very redundant system has the ability to reconfigure and restore functions automatically in the event of a subsystem failure, without the need for pilot intervention.

The Helionix suite also integrates the Garmin GTN-750 GPS, navigation and communication system, TAS620A traffic system, helicopter field warning and warning system (HTAWS), cockpit control panel (CCP) and data transfer device (DTD).

The TAS system on the H135M helicopter allows pilots to detect and avoid aircraft approaching helicopter flight paths, while HTAWS warns pilots about dangerous terrain and obstacles in flight paths to avoid the risk of collisions.

Airbus H135M Price and Orders

The latest Airbus H135M price is around US $ 5.7 Million. Airbus helicopters receive a £ 500 million ($ 730 million) 17-year contract from Ascent Flight Training in May 2016 to deliver 29 H135M and three H145 equipped with hoists to the UK Ministry of Defense (Ministry of Defense), under the British Military Flying Training System (UKMFTS Program). Ascent is the UK Ministry of Defense's training service partner for UKMFTS.

The first production and flight enhancement of the first H135M for UKMFTS was completed in June 2016. Deliveries were originally scheduled to start in 2017. However, the first aircraft was sent faster than scheduled to UKMFTS in December 2016, while other aircraft shipments were completed in October 2018.

Airbus received a contract from the Brazilian Navy in February 2019 for the delivery of three H135M military training helicopters.
