The Royal Thai Police is one of the newest operators of the Airbus Helicopters H175 and the first Asia Pacific operator of the type, following the recent delivery of two helicopters. The new super medium helicopters will be used for VVIP transportation and various police missions and are equipped with the latest aircraft technology and capabilities.

The H175 can seat up to 12 passengers in an executive/VIP configuration. The Royal Thai Police currently operates nine Airbus helicopters, comprising five H155, two AS365 N3+ and two H175.

Airbus Helicopters Bangkok-based support centre will support the new type. The H175 is fitted with Airbus Helicopters Helionix integrated suite of advanced avionics and 4-axis autopilot, which provides enhanced situational awareness and improved operational safety by helping to reduce pilot workload and increasing mission flexibility. The H175 has a maximum take-off weight of nearly eight tonnes and the fleet of 15 H175 helicopters, that are operational today, have flown about 12,000 hours globally.
