NH Industries delivers 300th NH90 production helicopter to the Spanish Armed Forces on Thursday, December 15.
Assembled at the Airbus Helicopters Spanish final assembly line at Albacete, the aircraft will be operated by the Spanish Army’s aviation branch, Fuerzas Aeromóviles del Ejército de Tierra (FAMET).
“Delivering the 300th helicopter to the Spanish customer is a key milestone for the NH90 Program. We plan to advance further by unveiling innovative growth options in the future, and our customers can be assured of our commitment to provide outstanding Support Services to our front-line operators,” said Vincent Dubrule, President of NHI.
“This achievement opens the way to new opportunities for this state-of-the-art helicopter. The impressively wide spectrum of missions performed by the NH90 makes it one of the most attractive military helicopter on the market, and it will remain so for many more years,” said NHI Managing Director Gianfranco Sottotetti.
Designed for maximum operational flexibility, the basic NH90 composite airframe, which is fitted with redundant fly-by-wire controls, is produced in both Tactical Transport Helicopter (TTH) for army missions and NATO Frigate Helicopter (NFH) for naval missions.
