Airbus Helicopters-KAI sign MoU

Airbus Helicopters and Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to jointly market Korean helicopter platforms worldwide.

The collaboration will encompass the distribution of the Korean Light Civil Helicopter (LCH) and Light Armed Helicopter (LAH) globally, as well as the performance of comprehensive after-sales support services, Airbus said in a statement. 

“Now as we look towards the future with our new LCH/LAH program, this collaboration is a natural next step that will enable both parties to leverage on each other’s strengths, to ensure success of these platforms in Korea and the world,” KAI’s Senior Vice President & General Manager of Rotary Wing Aircraft Research & Development Division, Dr. Joo Kyun Kim said. 

A working group comprising members from both parties will determine the details of the joint marketing efforts of the helicopters and the provision of after-sales support in the coming months.
