The Airbus Helicopters H130 is a single engine turbine corporate aircraft and the first choice for the discerning private or commercial sightseeing operators due to its European styling, high capacity seating and exceptional performance. The Airbus H130 (formerly Eurocopter EC130T2) is the 2rd generation of the EC130 B4 that was introduced into service in 2001.


“The H130 has the quietest helicopter in its class, due largely to its advanced Fenestron tail rotor.”


The H130 was developed from the H125 with dramatic changes to fuselage styling including a larger cabin, panoramic windows and most significantly the introduction fo the Fenestron ducted tail rotor (anti-torque system). The H130 (EC130 T2) received the same engine upgrade as the H125, being the dual-channel FADEC Safran Arriel 2D engine reducing the direct operating costs and increasing the performance envelope.


The Airbus H130 has a standard 7 seat configuration with a cruise speed of 128 kts, a max range of 327 nm, a useful load of 2,306 lbs and a hover OGE ceiling of 9,700 ft.
