Microflite has ordered a second five-bladed H145 D3 to support its growing training, commercial, utility, fire observation and rescue operations.

Microflite is Airbus’s largest civil helicopter customer in Australia, currently operating an Airbus fleet of 20 rotorcraft ranging from single-engine H120, H125 and H130 to twin-engine H135 and H145. The operator also has on order an H135 and an H145, with the latter being the fifth Helionix-equipped helicopter in its fleet.

“The H145 has proven to be an excellent workhorse for our multi-mission operations. With the second five-bladed H145 joining the fleet in the coming months, we can’t wait to see these versatile helicopters making a positive impact to our expanding training and commercial portfolio,” said Jonathan Booth, Chief Executive Officer, Microflite Helicopter Services.
