PT Dirgantara to deliver H225M helicopters to Indonesian air force

PT Dirgantara (PTDI) has announced that under terms of an agreement with Indonesian Ministry of Defence, it will deliver 11 H225M combat-proven helicopters to the country´s air force, the company said.

Helicopters will be delivered to the air force upon reassembly and completion of the mission equipment outfitting and customisation by PTDI at its facility in Bandung, Indonesia. These additional helicopters will join the air force´s existing fleet of six H225Ms to perform similar combat search and rescue missions.

Airbus Helicopters and Indonesia have an enduring relationship of over 40 years dating back to 1976 when PTDI first obtained a licence to produce the NBO-105 helicopter.

Airbus is a global leader in aeronautics, space and related services. In 2017 it generated revenues of EUR 59 billion restated for IFRS 15 and employed a workforce of around 129,000.
