Airbus Helicopters flies second H160 prototype


Its initial flight-test article – which uses the Pratt & Whitney Canada PW210 powerplants now dropped from the programme – had accumulated 75h by the end of 2015 since first taking to the skies in early June

[...]2016 will be a busy 12 months for the airframer as it pushes ahead with the H160’s development: it aims to begin taking orders for the 5.5-6t helicopter this year, as well as inaugurating “an all-new automated final assembly line” in the second half.

Amazing! Airbus planing soon faster than Speed dating.
