These projects are part of the company´s mid- and long-term research and development strategy to provide innovative solutions to reduce operating and maintenance costs while improving environmental protection, safety, quality and performance.The H160 is displayed on Airbus Group’s Eco Way as the rotorcraft that will be 15% to 20% more energy efficient thanks to Turbomeca’s new generation Arrano engines. It will also have reduced fuel consumption combined with a use of innovative and lighter materials including composites. The CO2 emissions will be 20% less per passenger compared to the current range. Sound levels will be reduced by up to 50% compared to the current range and 70% below the regulation. This is mainly thanks to sound reduction technologies such as the Blue Edge® rotor blades and Fenestron®.
