This month, at the 12th edition of the Dubai International Humanitarian Aid & Development Conference & Exhibition (DIHAD), Airbus Helicopters will discuss its commitment to international peacekeeping and humanitarian efforts. The company will emphasize its helicopter solutions that can provide air transport efficiency to organizations such as international agencies, governmental and non-governmental organizations, foundations and charities, Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, as well as private logistics companies.

In particular, Airbus Helicopters will emphasize its AS332 C1e, a medium-heavy, twin-engine helicopter that belongs to the well-known Super-Puma/Cougar family. This helicopter can perform a large spectrum of missions serving air crane and air transport private and/or para-public operators engaged in emergency humanitarian aid. Its useful load together with its capability for heavy lift operations make it a versatile helicopter. The AS332 C1e is also able to operate in harsh conditions such as snow, sand or high and hot environments. Thanks to its state-of-the-art avionics and EASA/FAA certifications, it ensures a high level of safety for pilots and passengers.
