Airbus Helicopters received certification from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) for the H175 helicopter.

This certification will allow H175 deliveries to begin in China, which Airbus describes as one of the most demanding markets worldwide for civil helicopters with a growing need for the super-medium segment. Four H175s will be delivered to Chinese customers in 2023.

“The Chinese certification of the H175 is another great achievement in the continued successful partnership between Airbus Helicopters and the Chinese helicopter industry,” said Bruno Even, CEO of Airbus Helicopters.

In service since 2015, Airbus notes the H175 combines long-range with advanced quality of flight, allowing it to be suitable for a number of missions, including offshore crew change, SAR, all public services, and private and business aviation.
