The Airbus Helicopters H125 is a single engine turbine workhorse and the first choice for utility operators globally due to its unmatched lift capacity in hot and high conditions. The Airbus H125 is the 7th generation of the Ecureuil family (aka AStar or Squirrel) originally developed from the Aerospatiale Gazelle.
