Specialist helicopters save lives and bring much needed aid to war-torn regions, so the aircraft need to be tough and resilent.

Airbus Helicopter will show their AS332 C1e, a medium-heavy, twin-engine helicopter that belongs to the Super-Puma/Cougar family.

The helicopter can perform many missions from evacuation of people out of danger, delivering many types of aid to those in need and the ability to treat many injured at the same time.
