The H160 received its Type Certificate in Japan
The latest model of the Airbus Helicopter's family just received its Type Certificate from the Japanese Civil Aviation Bureau -JCAB-. The Type Certificate from the Japanese aviation authorities give Airbus the green light for deliveries in the country.
A H160 was already seen flying in Japanese colours for ANH earlier this year. As flight tests progress and with this new milestone, the H160 program is a bit closer to official entry to service.
The new multi-role twin engine aircraft, powered by SAFRAN, will replace a AS365 for electronic news gathering for the TV stations across Japan.
