Latécoère, through its Interconnection Systems branch - No. 2 worldwide in onboard wiring - today announces that it has been selected by Airbus Helicopters for “design and build” services relating to the development, integration and maintenance of test benches for all Airbus Helicopters programs.
After winning the contract for test bench maintenance at the Airbus facility in Toulouse in late 2016, this new agreement, signed for a two-year renewable term, will enable the Interconnection Systems branch to build on its “Systems Test Bench” expertise within the Airbus Group.
Already contracted for the supply of Cockpit Control Panels for the H175 range, this agreement strengthens Latécoère's role within Airbus Helicopters.
