Airbus Helicopters has signed a Memorandum of Agreement with to create an industrial cooperation for long-term aviation projects that will initially focus on the production of certain mechanical parts for helicopter dynamic systems.

This project is part of the 'Zrinyi 2026' armed forces development program supporting Hungary’s national security goals of developing independent defence capabilities, the company said in a statement Tuesday.

“This partnership is in line with our European cooperation strategy at Airbus,” said Bruno Even, Chief Executive Officer of Airbus Helicopters. 

The agreement intends to create a sustainable and integrated plant within Airbus. The green field production unit will start by manufacturing mechanical parts that will then be delivered to the major component assembly centre for dynamic parts to be fitted on to the various Airbus helicopters. The agreement will also rely on a local supply chain being qualified to perform certain tasks such as surface treatment.

The Hungarian Ministry of Defence has recently purchased 36 helicopters, among which 20 H145Ms and 16 H225Ms, and it also operates two A319 aircraft.
