(DEFENCE SECURITY ASIA) — Airbus’ next generation twin-engine helicopter, the H160 has been granted type certification by the Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM), paving the way for the rotorcraft’s entry into the Malaysian market.

 This came shortly after the helicopter manufacturer received Transport Canada Civil Aviation type certification of the model.

The H160 was already certified by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency, the US Federal Aviation Administration and Japan Civil Aviation Bureau.

“The timely H160 certification underlines the country’s vote of confidence in our latest offering which will fly the Malaysia skies in the coming months.

This achievement fully demonstrated the strong collaboration between Airbus and CAAM, in ensuring thorough assessments that comply with the highest safety standards. We look forward to the H160 supporting critical missions in the country soon,” said Axel de Pascal, Managing Director, Airbus Helicopters Malaysia.
