Airbus is showcasing its single-engine H125 and H130 helicopters and a twin-engine of the H145 family at the ongoing show.
“The multi-mission capacity of the H125 and H145 are perfectly adapted to Mexico’s hot and high operational conditions and can be configured to perform a wide range of public service missions, including emergency medical transport (EMS), law enforcement and re-fighting. The H130 offers a wide and silent cabin perfectly adapted to EMS transport,” says Ricardo Capilla, Head of Airbus Mexico.
Mexico is among Airbus’ strategic countries with more than 60 per cent market share of the country’s in-service commercial aircraft fleet, 22 military aircraft in service and an in- service fleet of more than 170 helicopters.
In 2018 Airbus delivered 44 per cent of the helicopters in Mexico. To reinforce its long-standing commitment to Mexico, Airbus is presenting its broad selection of products, innovations and services spanning military and public service transport aircraft, security and surveillance solutions, as well as space and satellite systems. Besides a C295 displayed by the Mexican Air Force, the nation’s Armed Forces is showcasing one of their H225M and AS565 MBe Panther helicopters, both of which played a critical role performing search and rescue and disaster relief missions during the natural disasters that have affected the country in the recent years.
At its chalet, Airbus is also featuring its latest transport aircraft, space systems, intelligence and secure communications technologies. In the space business, the two most powerful Earth Observation system ever developed in Latin America, Fasat Charlie (SSOT) for Chile and Peru SAT-1 for Peru, were built by Airbus.
Showgoers will also have the opportunity to experience the innovative helicopter HForce weapon system through the HForce 360 goggles and HoloLens, which can also virtually demonstrate the A400M, Eurofighter and A350 XWB, among other Airbus products. Capilla says, “FAMEX represents the most important exhibition to demonstrate our commitment to the country’s growing aero-space and defense industries with our best products and services.
