The first two NH90 helicopters, dedicated to naval missions, of the Qatar Emiri Air Force have been delivered from Leonardo’s Venice Tessera final assembly line (Italy). The Qatar Emiri Air Force is one of the NH90 end users to operate both the TTH and NFH versions of the NH90 for a number of land operations and naval missions.
As well as acting as prime contractor for the overall programme, Leonardo is responsible for the final assembly and delivery of the 12 NH90 NFH helicopters from its Venice Tessera facility. The company is also providing a support and training services package for crews and maintenance technicians.
Managed through the NH Industries joint venture, the NH90 is the largest military helicopter programme in Europe. Nearly 470 units are in service worldwide and the platform has logged nearly 330,000 flight hours in a wide range of weather and environmental conditions, over land and sea.Email Post to a Friend
