Airbus Helicopters will highlight its wide range of products and services at this year’s China Heli-Expo, from 14th to 17th September in Tianjin. The company will also be celebrating the 50th anniversary of its presence in China.

Several Chinese-operated H125, a member of the renowned Ecureuil family and the reference in the light single market in China, will also be on display during the show. At the end of 2016, the in-service Ecureuil fleet reached 100 in China, becoming the largest fleet of a single helicopter type in the country.

The Airbus Helicopters’ show display also includes an HCare counter presenting the company’s commitment to supporting customers in every aspect, including training, maintenance, technical support, fleet management, and mission preparation.

This year also marks the 50th anniversary of Airbus Helicopters’ presence in China.
