Rotorcraft Report: NH90 Tested on Norwegian Ship
The NH90 military transport helicopter has completed a series of ship deck landing trials in cold weather aboard a Norwegian Coast Guard vessel, the Nordkapp. In three weeks, the NH90 performed 105 landings. The test campaign took place in the central Norwegian fjords, inside the Arctic polar circle. Involved were test pilots from the Norwegian, French and Italian navies. The test results were “in line with the operational requirements of the participating navies,” according to NH Industries.
