The first two Airbus H125 helicopters arrived for Ukrainian border guards


According to the press service of the State Fire Service of Ukraine, on January 3, two Airbus H125 helicopters manufactured by the French company Airbus Helicopters were delivered to the country. They are intended for the Ukrainian border service. Cars arrived under the Ukrainian-French intergovernmental agreement.


First Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Sergey Yarovoy notes that these helicopters are ideal for training crews in flying skills and patrolling the state border, as they are very economical. He noted that Ukraine before that received five such H125 for the needs of rescuers and the National Guard.

The head of the State Border Service, Sergey Deineko, notes that the received fuel consumption helicopters are 8-4 times more economical than the ones currently used. Thus, with the same amount of fuel, a French helicopter will be able to make 5-4 times more sorties than its predecessor. Thus, it is easier to ensure the constant presence of equipment in the air and to respond quickly to changes in the border situation.

The first two H125 will be sent to Kremenchug Flight College, where they will be used as training helicopters. In the future, Ukraine will receive 24 more such machines.

Meanwhile, experts in Ukraine believe that we are talking about a new corruption scheme, the main purpose of which is to get actually old cars under the guise of new equipment.

      With these two French helicopters Avakov has already been half a year, if not more, worn by all the media, as if he had acquired a squadron!

      Two Ukrainians are sitting on the block, one asks:
      - Hear the syudy, Mykola, do you have AIDS?
      The other, not understanding what he was talking about, thinks: “I’ll say - no: well, how is it: I have something and I don’t - it’s solid. I’ll say - there is - he’ll suddenly ask,” he answers:
      - e, but troki tilki for sebe !.

              Helicopters will be purchased with the help of a French loan granted under an agreement between the Ukrainian government and the French government. At the same time, 15% of the contract price with Airbus Helicopters SAS will be paid from the Ukrainian state budget.
              The total cost of helicopters is 554,29 million euros or 18,23 billion UAH. They will be delivered to Ukraine before the end of 2022

          Absolutely right! It can be compared with MI-2, which was modernized with the latest technology. And he became much better than H125.

          For fuel, it may be more economical, but for maintenance, more expensive than the "eight" at the same time. And again, "preremost", smoothly turns into a "hail." And “Motor Sich” -evsky helicopters, based on MI-2, with its own engines (that is, completely of its own production), sideways. This is such a slogan in Ukraine, "support the domestic manufacturer." So they supported, someone in the pocket.

      Everyone knows and says that it’s pure water, the Deriban budget, only Sabakov does not care at all. It is not clear why they compare it with Mi - 8, when a classmate of Mi - 2. If you compare them, then there are practically no advantages. Especially when you consider 2 - ek at the MO storage bases there are several hundred.

    in short, one and a half rescuers, one and a half border guards!

      Of course not. Europeans need to sell their equipment. Plus, pr-in mi2 in Ukraine to kill, and then suddenly someone else will buy, flattered by cheapness. Why do we need competitors, even such dumb ones? Well, the Ukrainian authorities and oligarchs are systematically dumping the local, complex production into scrap. It is expensive and not profitable for them. It’s easier for them to spend the money spent on maintaining the local pr-va on the procurement of consignments of kosher western weapons and equipment. Yes, and it is beneficial to us. Ukrainian pr-va will bend, get rid of the competitor. We will entice specialists to ourselves. In the west, they are not needed in FIG. request

        I think I’ve already got rid of the competitor, with a competent approach from the Russian Federation in a couple of years the 404th will lose the opportunity to exploit -8 and will fly out of the same Africa where their companies work.
        And the Kremenchug already complain - the cars received are not in the best condition and not even -8am.

    Here I read and once again wonder how the truth can cover up a lie ...
    irbus Helicopters H125 (formerly Eurocopter AS350) is a lightweight single-engine universal helicopter. For high speed, maneuverability and compact size, the aircraft was nicknamed Écureuil - “Squirrel”. What are the specifications of the Airbus Helicopters H125:
    Capacity: 1 pilot + 5/6 passengers
    Maximum speed: 287 km / h
    Maximum cruising speed: 251 km / h
    Range without refueling: 631 km
    Main rotor diameter: 10,7 m
    Height: 3,34 m
    Length: 12,94 m
    The mass of the empty helicopter: 1174 kg
    Carrying capacity: 1400 kg
    Now compare it with the Mi-8
    Production odes: since 1965.
    Total manufactured: about 12 thousand pieces.
    Combat use: military conflicts of the second half of the XX century.
    Crew - 3 people, landing - up to 28 people.
    Take-off weight - 12 tons.
    Dimensions: length (with screws) - 25,3 m, height (with tail rotor) - 5,5 m, rotor diameter - 21,3 m.
    Armament: 1 × 12,7 mm or 7,62 mm machine gun, suspension points for unguided aircraft missiles and bombs.
    Gas turbine engines.
    Maximum speed - 260 km / h.
    Practical ceiling - 4,2 km.
    Flight range - 425-480 km.
    These are cars of DIFFERENT CLASS. If we compare the N-125, then with the Mi-2, which, by the way, is now being produced in a small series in Ukraine, which means this contract deprived the Ukrainian workers of earnings

      Sergey, to deprive the Ukrainian workers of earnings is a "trick" of the authorities.
      As an example, an order for turbines is given to China, although there is Turboatom. 10 years ago, foreign buyers (who witnessed a conversation with the Vietnamese) gave bribes not to stand in line. THEN the turn was for 5 ... 6 years. Today is a four-day period. And the threat of privatization.
      And here it is already “familiar” —Avakov is ahead of everyone (police, National Guard, border guards).

      Well, Mi2 is released - it is said very much.

      Then it is more economical and Mi-2. In all respects. And by the resource. And for maintenance (a new approach to service has already been introduced on this model - this is optimization of operations, highly efficient and quick checks, etc.). And on fuel for 1 engine.

      Reasons for the purchase:
      1) MS could not give a loan for 80% of the products, but France did. Avakov paid only 20% in money. The rest is a loan from the EU and a loan from French banks.
      2) You need a reliable car with certificates. For the same reason, for example, Kazan and Kumertau are being eaten in Russia, where the helicopter plant has bent and will be liquidated, or rather reoriented to the production of spare parts, Arseniev.



      Well, here is a cherry, the same 125 - collected in France, at the same factory, just two years earlier. Purchased in the Far East.
      Two ambulance helicopters Airbus Helicopters AS350 B3e, purchased on behalf of the Governor of Primorsky Territory Vladimir Miklushevsky, were put into operation, the press service of the regional administration said.

      One of the helicopters was put into operation at the airfield in Kavalerovo; it will deliver patients from the northern territories of the region to the regional center. On February 5, the board made its first flight from Kavalerovo to the regional vascular center of the Regional Clinical Hospital No. 1 in Vladivostok. “We are located at a distance of 450 kilometers from the regional center, and often our patients need high-tech help, and prompt. First of all, such help will be necessary for patients with cardiovascular diseases, pregnant women and those who have received serious injuries,” the press service quotes administration words of the chief physician of the Kavalerovskaya hospital Vyacheslav Nazarenko.

      During a working trip to Kavalerovo, V. Miklushevsky emphasized that every doctor knows the golden hour rule, when every minute is important to save a life. "These machines are able to quickly deliver a person to the hospital from the most inaccessible region of Primorye, ”said the governor. - The flight from Kavalerovo to Vladivostok, for example, will take only an hour and a half. One helicopter, according to experts, is about 200-250 saved lives a year".

        True. I confirm. Even my little son was photographed in the cockpit of one of these helicopters, which is pictured. I often prepare a site for their landing in our area. And he always wondered - why not buy disasters "Ansta" for Primorsky Medicine? After all, they are no worse. But in our regional administration, apparently they think in a completely different way.

          Well, they presented rusty cases, but their painting. and reduced to a more or less divine state, this is already paid, but if you also put in some equipment, they’ll put some (also seen restored after “storage”), so this is a separate option. That's cool...

    Well, compared with the Poltava AK1-3 - a clear progress, albeit more expensive.
    Still, the Mi-8 is a fairly large transporter, with all its advantages. Gluttonous, to teach schoolchildren and to drive along the border - kerosene is not enough for him.

    received fuel consumption helicopters are 8-4 times more economical than the Mi-5 currently used. Thus, with the same amount of fuel, a French helicopter will be able to make 4-5 times more sorties than its predecessor.

    But they have no complaints about the quality of fuel? It’s painfully interesting - they will swallow local fuel, will it be necessary to import al bourgeois fuels and lubricants?

      There are mostly Baltic jet fuel. Not local. Therefore, they will devour. Plus it's standardization. Or do you think in the same Boryspil they import sealed wagons of kerosene for Boeings and Watermelons? Or do they fly on local body water urine?

      Also actually in Russia. I showed above that exactly the same H125 in the performance of flying ambulances in the Far East works. Think Japanese fuel? wink

    A friend told me that MI-8 consumes 800 liters of kerosene per hour, and how much then airbassovsky?
    Well, how sensitive it is to the quality of kerosene is also a question :)

      According to the passport data -0,680 t / h. This is an average value, given the density of fuel in the summer, we get a slightly larger value, again what kind of load, altitude, range, the state of the atmosphere on the route, with suspension or not ...

    The head of the State Border Service, Sergey Deineko, notes that the resulting fuel consumption helicopters are 8-4 times more economical than the Mi-5 currently in use. Thus, with the same amount of fuel, a French helicopter will be able to make 4-5 times more sorties than its predecessor.
    And if he finds out how much fuel is consumed, a trike? ...

      Actually incorrect. On alternatives correctly.

      Well, what else could a particular customer get? SMEs? So his MS will not produce as much in such a time and for such money. Plus it’s worse in everything.

      Mi-8 rebuild or outbid with low mileage.

      And ... that's it. There are no other helicopters at an affordable base.

      You could take Bella for example. Or Augusta. But France agreed to lend 80% of the contract amount, so they took Watermelons. Everything is simple wink

    I always said that a lot of negativity and bile against Ukraine in all Russian media will have a very positive effect on the future in improving relations with our neighbor! Very smart tactics, keep it up!

      you will not drink experience. They do the same with RB. One to one. Then they will blame that they have always been like that.
      They form an attitude so that it would be easier to explain the KhPP later (why we lost Ukraine / Belarus / Armenia / others)

    As for the "constant presence of technology in the air," they got excited. By the way, the cost of operation probably includes not only fuel costs?

    We bought it and did it right, the Mi-8 is hefty, you need to be smaller.

      Of course. It’s not for the neighbors to use healthy helicopters today. And smaller will come down. hi

    At the beginning of 2000, the border guards of Belarus also bought two such units, then wrote off very quickly. They could only be served in France. Such rules, otherwise you can’t fly. Gold steel.

    The very thing for Ukraine is that they have a Sich motor for now. And they buy helicopters from others

    The contract says EC 225 LP (used) - 24 pieces, and H125 -10 pcs. new ones. It’s bad that they do not develop their aviation industry at least for the overhaul of MI 2 (after all, the Khokhlyatsk mass media wrote about this as a help-loudly). This trend exists and in Russia we are not developing our aviation industry fast enough. We write in the media beautifully and loudly how well we develop our aviation industry, and in fact the speed is like an unlubricated cart (long and with a creak)
