 Airbus Helicopters will participate in the international helicopter industry exhibition HeliRussia 2016 held in Moscow on May 19-21.

“Airbus Helicopters, as a leader with over 50% of the market share in the EMS segment, is ready to contribute to the development of the emerging market of emergency medical services in Russia,” said Emeric Lhomme, CEO of Airbus Helicopters Vostok. “HeliRussia is a unique opportunity to present our specific solutions to the key market players and how they meet the demands of the Russian market” he added.


In February 2016 Airbus Helicopters and Ural Works of Civil Aviation (UWCA) signed an agreement on the licensed assembly of H135 helicopters at the Russian manufacturer's facility in Yekaterinburg. The H135 family is a global benchmark for EMS and medical evacuation with over 500 aircraft flying on this segment.

“The H135 fully corresponds to the needs of the rising EMS market in Russia. Airbus Helicopters is ready not only to invest in the development of this segment through the assembly partnership with UWCA, but also to share the experience and technological know-how with our Russian colleagues and partners” said Emeric Lhomme.

Airbus Helicopters will present a light twin-engine H135 helicopter operated by Austria's ÖAMTC (Österreichischer Automobil-, Motorrad- und Touring Club) on its booth. The aircraft, that can accommodate two pilots, two medical workers and one passenger on a stretcher and all the medical equipment necessary to providing intensive patient care during the flight, is actively used by the operator to perform EMS and evacuation missions.

Visitors of Airbus Helicopters booth are also invited to see a mock-up of the H160, the most recent development at Airbus Helicopters. This helicopter, incorporating 68 dedicated patents, combines form and function in a striking design. The H160 is tailored for a wide range of applications, including emergency medical services, oil and gas operations, public service, and private and business aviation.

Airbus Helicopters will present its vision of the development of the Russian EMS market during the 5th Interdepartmental scientific practical conference Air Ambulance & Medical Evacuation Conference 2016 on 19 May in the framework of the exhibition.
