Airbus Helicopters has delivered the final two H135 training helicopters to the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF).

The TH-135 is a variant of Airbus Helicopters’ light twin-engine H135. The H135 was selected as the replacement for its single-engine training helicopter fleet, thanks to its unrivalled performance and easy maintenance which translates to high availability rate.

The H135 has a seating capacity of seven to eight passengers (five for TH-135).

In Japan, there are currently 80 H135s operating for emergency medical services, police work, electronic news gathering, VIP transport and business aviation.
