In 2014, Airbus retired its long-running Eurocopter brand and reorganized its vertical take-off and landing division into Airbus Helicopters.
And the first “purely Airbus” creation to emerge since the rebranding is the Airbus H160. It’s the company’s newest entrant into the medium-sized twin-engine helicopter market.
“The H160 is coming into one of the most needed segments for us,” Airbus Helicopters Inc. CEO Chris Emerson told Business Insider. “It’s a replacement for the current H155 and is able to scale up to the bottom end of the larger H175.”
