The EC175 is testing its limits of high and hot in the US
The EC175 set off last week by Antonov for a six-week campaign in the United States to test its flight performance in high and hot environments. Successful completion of the tests will enable Airbus Helicopters to expand the helicopter’s flight envelope in extremely high temperatures and at high altitudes.

Helicopter Manufacturer
Introduction
Airbus Helicopters, Inc. is a helicopter manufacturer and our company is the leading provider of commercial helicopters in the United States. We market, sell and support the broadest range of civil and para-public helicopters offered by any manufacturer.

Company headquarters are located in Grand Prairie, Texas, and we have a production center of excellence in Columbus, Mississippi, where we produce th...e UH-72A for the U.S. Army and make our AS350 helicopters for customers such as U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

Our heritage in the United States goes back over 40 years and our roots began in 1969 when Aerospatiale and LTV Aerospace formed Vought Helicopter. Airbus Helicopters, Inc., former American Eurocopter, was formed in 1992 when Aerospatiale Helicopter, Inc. and MBB USA merged.

Today, Airbus Helicopters, Inc. has more than 600 customers and we support over 1900 aircraft operating throughout the country. From our humble beginnings, our company has grown to a U.S. footprint of over 860,000 square feet with more than 900 employees and controls market share in five out of six of the top business segments.

Airbus Helicopters, Inc. is the U.S. affiliate of Airbus Helicopters, the largest helicopter manufacturer in the world, and a subsidiary of Airbus Group, Inc., the North American operations of Airbus Group, the world’s second largest aerospace and defense company. This may sound a little confusing, but rest assured that when you are talking about the best helicopters in the commercial market, you are talking about helicopters from Airbus Helicopters, Inc..
