Japan Coast Guard orders two H225s


Airbus Helicopters H225 operated by Japan Coast Guard

The Japan Coast Guard (JCG), has placed a new order for two H225 helicopters.  The Coast Guard already operates two AS332s and 13 H225s.

The helicopters will be used for territorial coastal activities, security enforcement and as disaster relief missions.

“We thank the Japan Coast Guard for its continued confidence in the H225,” said Guillaume Leprince, Managing Director of Airbus Helicopters in Japan. “The H225 is well regarded as a reference in search-and-rescue operations and security enforcement, and we are certainly happy to see these helicopters effectively deployed in Japan through the years. We have delivered three new H225 to JCG in the recent months, within schedule, and are committed to fully supporting its existing fleet, as well as its upcoming deliveries,
