Airbus Helicopters delivered the fifth and final H135 training helicopter to the German Armed Forces in June.

The German Federal Office for Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-service Support (BAAINBw) has leased the five helicopters for use by the German Armed Forces to train helicopter pilots at the Internationales Hubschrauberausbildungszentrum based at Buckeburg near Hanover, where they join 14 other H135s in use since 2000.

Together, the Bundeswehr training fleet has accumulated over 10,000 flight hours to date.
