Our commitment to the safety of our products and our customers is reflected across all our activities, and is supported by investments in state-of-the-art training facilities for pilots and maintenance personnel; the incorporation of cutting-edge technologies throughout our helicopter product line; and the active involvement of Airbus Helicopters, Inc. specialists in the work of industry safety organizations, teams and steering groups.
Major safety initiatives at Airbus Helicopters, Inc. include the creation of a highly-capable flight simulator center and a well-equipped maintenance training facility at our Grand Prairie, Texas headquarters, and the pioneering application of helicopter flight data monitoring through such systems as the Appareo Vision 1000.
