The Airbus Helicopter MBB-BK 117 C-1 is the versatile multi-purpose helicopter.
Messerschmitt-Bölkow-Blohm (now Airbus Helicopters) and Kawasaki Heavy Industries have jointly developed this helicopter. From the beginning, great emphasis was placed on versatility and reliability.
MBB-BK 117 C-1 is very popular with pilots because of good flight characteristics and ease of use. All HeliService helicopters have been meticulously upgraded to the latest standards to give passengers the highest level of safety.
HeliService uses this type exclusively for deployments of the research vessel Polarstern in year-round polar expeditions in the Arctic and Antarctic.
