Labinal Power Systems (Safran) was chosen by Airbus Helicopters to supply the cockpit and rear avionics bays for the H160, the latest aircraft under development at Airbus Helicopters. These bays are complex cabled structures made of metallic and composite materials that will integrate the helicopter's cockpit electronics and avionics equipment.
"We are thrilled to have been chosen by Airbus Helicopters for this new type of equipment. Labinal Power Systems worked with Airbus Helicopters for 18 months in advance to define the best industrial strategy and optimizations to meet the program's requirements," says Julien Willer, Airbus Helicopters account manager for the EWIS Eurasia division at Labinal Power Systems.
"The added value that we were able to contribute to the program enabled us to win this new contract. This reinforces the partnership that we have long held with Airbus Helicopters, for which we produce electrical and cabling systems for the Super Puma, Puma, Dauphin, NH90, H135 and EC145 programs," adds Sébastien Jaulerry, Vice President & General Manager of the EWIS Eurasia division at Labinal Power Systems.
