Qatar lights up the NH sky

While the Gulf state takes delivery of the first of 28 NH90s on order, elsewhere NH Industries has had a disappointing year with first Australia and then Norway dropping its aircraft from their fleets. The NH90 is the product of Europe’s largest military helicopter programme run by the NHI consortium, a joint venture of Airbus Helicopters (62.5%), Leonardo (32%) and GKN Fokker (5.5%). Nearly 470 units have been delivered to 14 nations, including Oman and Qatar.
