Airbus Helicopters and SKYCO International Financial Leasing Co., Ltd., a Chinese state-owned enterprise belonging to  Guangdong Province, have signed a contract for six H175 helicopters.

The versatile H175 helicopters acquired by SKYCO Leasing will be deployed by the Guangdong Government for search and rescue, emergency medical services, disaster relief and other public services missions in China.

This cooperation goes far beyond the purchase of helicopters. It is an unmistakable sign of Guangdong Province's willingness to lead the development of the helicopter market in the southern region of China. We are proud that the Guangdong Provincial Government has chosen Airbus Helicopters to carry out this ambitious cooperation project together,” said Bruno Even, CEO of Airbus Helicopters.

Besides the helicopter purchase, the parties have agreed to the joint development of support and services activities and an industrial cooperation setup to lay a solid foundation for the development of general aviation by promoting the reform to open low-altitude airspace.

The partnership will also explore an effective business model adapted to the Chinese aviation market that will contribute to regional economic development.
