AIN is proud to announce the winner of the 2020 Top Flight Awards Rotorcraft category: the Airbus Helicopters H160

The new Airbus H160 medium twin incorporates a variety of new technologies. It features “Blue Edge” active-tracking main rotor blades in a five-blade system with a double-sweep design that reduces noise and improves ride smoothness. New 1,300-shp Safran Arrano engines feature a two-stage centrifugal compressor and variable inlet guide vanes, which cut fuel consumption by 10 to 15 percent. The four-panel touchscreen Helionix avionics reduce pilot workload, and couple to a four-axis digital flight control system that operates full-time.

The H160 combines a composite airframe, futuristic styling, and modern technologies to produce a helicopter that is safer and more economical to operate and maintain.
