Airbus Helicopters Canada Limited

May 15, 2015

Airbus Helicopters Canada – operating in Canada since 1984 – is a subsidiary of Airbus Helicopters wholly owned by the Airbus Group, a global aerospace and defence leader. Eurocopter Group was created in 1992 with the merger of the rotorcraft divisions of Aerospatiale (France) and Deutsche Aerospace (Germany). In January 2014, the company was rebranded as Airbus Helicopters, opening a new chapter in its history.

The company’s head office and manufacturing facility is in Fort Erie, Ontario, with Customer Support Centers located in Richmond, British Columbia and Montreal, Quebec.

Airbus Helicopters Canada manufactures, markets, sells, assembles, supports and provides training solutions for Airbus rotarywing aircraft in Canada. It has become a leading provider of helicopters for the Canadian utility, law enforcement, emergency medical service and executive markets.

Today, Airbus Helicopters Canada supports over 190 operators who collectively operate more than 690 helicopters in Canada. In 2015, the U.S. Army awarded Airbus  Helicopters with the production contract of an additional 41 units of its twin-engine UH-72A Lakota to serve as the Army’s new multi-mission Utility Helicopter (LUH); bringing the total order to more than 400 aircraft.

The EC645 T2 shown here is the newest lightweight military multi-role helicopter from Airbus Helicopters.

The extensive military range worldwide also includes the highly specialized NH90 and Tiger platforms. Airbus Helicopters also offers a wide range of multi-mission helicopters – from the light single-engine EC120, EC130 B4/T2, and AS350 B2/B3e, to the twin-engine AS355NP, EC155, EC225, AS365, and the new generation twin-engine EC135 P3e/T3e, EC145, EC145 T2 and EC175.

Airbus Helicopters Canada also develops options and manufactures composite components for the global Eurocopter fleet and supply chain including the EC130 engine cowlings and fairings, EC135 stabilizers, end plates, hub caps and boarding steps, EC145 engine cowlings and boarding steps as well as the EC225 engine cowlings.

The Airbus Helicopters Canada engineering department is a Design Approval Organization (DAO) certified for the development and flight testing of aircraft options and modifications.

At Airbus Helicopters Canada’s Transport Canada (TC) certified training centre, we offer factory approved maintenance (airframe & engine) and pilot training.
