Airbus Wins Helicopter Contract From France, Spain

By Cristina Roca


Airbus SE said Wednesday that France and Spain have awarded its helicopters division a contract for the Tiger MkIII attack helicopter upgrade program.

The European aerospace and defense company said the contract includes the upgrade of 42 helicopters for France, with the possibility to add another 25 units, and 18 for Spain. The contract makes it possible for Germany to later join the program too.

The first prototype should fly in 2025, and France should take first delivery in late 2029.

The company didn't disclose financial details.
