Airbus delivers two new H135 helicopters to NASA

Airbus continues to expand its portfolio of products supporting the future of space exploration with the delivery of two new H135 helicopters to NASA

Airbus has delivered two new H135 helicopters to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) from the Airbus Helicopters production and completion facility in Columbus, Mississippi.

These aircraft, along with a third scheduled for delivery early next year, will be based at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida and operated for a variety of missions, including aerial security at rocket launches, emergency medical services, research, and qualified passenger transportation.

In October, one of the H135s will escort the members of SpaceX’s Crew Dragon to the historic launch pad at 39A, where it will depart for a six-month expedition to the ISS. The helicopters will also support efforts to prepare for and execute Artemis, a planned expedition to land the first woman and the next man on the moon by 2024.
