The Airbus Helicopters H175 was developed by French aircraft manufacturers in December 2005. According to official information released by representatives of the French aircraft manufacturing giant Airbus Helicopters, the new and multipurpose aircraft was supposed to replace a number of aircraft of this type in terms of its flight technical parameters, including both those previously produced by the company itself and helicopters from other aircraft manufacturing companies. and corporations, including China, Russia and the United States.

The aircraft Airbus Helicopters H175 has an average duty, in particular, its maximum takeoff weight is 7 tons, in fact, provides a very real competition for aircraft from other manufacturers, however, due to the fact that the helicopter development was somewhat delayed, the cost of the aircraft the device is unduly high, leading to a decrease in the number of potentially interested buyers.

The first flight of the helicopter Airbus Helicopters H175 made in 2009 year, however, the aircraft's aircraft performance did not meet the expectations of the aircraft company's management, therefore, the project was aimed at additional refinement, where it was still for several years. In 2014, the helicopter model Airbus Helicopters H175 was officially introduced to the general public, and a few months later was sent to mass production, where it continues to be and to this day. According to the previous opinion of the management of the Airbus Helicopters company, up to 2034 it is planned to realize about one thousand aircraft of this model, however, preliminary reports indicate that the final figure will be in the region of 500-600 sold copies.

Helicopter Airbus Helicopters H175 positioned solely as a civilian aircraft, however, can also be used in the military sphere of its operation, including how to transport people on board, and for the transportation of various cargoes.

Depending on the interior layout and modification of aircraft, can accommodate up to 18-20 people aboard the aircraft, including 16-18 passengers and two crew members. If the helicopter intended to be used as a transport aircraft, the on board can accommodate up to 3197 kg of payload, which is quite practical.

The Airbus Helicopters H175 has a gas turbine-type power plant, consisting of two Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6C-67E aircraft engines, each capable of developing a power of 1775 hp, which is the main reason for the high payload of this aircraft. The aircraft can accelerate to a speed of 315 km / h. (maximum) and fly at distances of 1260 kilometers.
