Feature story The UH-145 comes to Washington, D.C. for AUSA's annual meeting

October 11, 2006

The UH-145 made its first ever appearance in the nation's capital at the Association of the United States Army's annual meeting this week, attracting a steady flow of visitors who were anxious to see the rotary-wing aircraft chosen by the U.S. Army for its new Light Utility Helicopter.

Army aviators, mechanics and other personnel who had a first-hand look at the UH-145 on EADS North America's exhibit stand were impressed with the helicopter's excellent visibility, its ease of access and loading through the sliding side and rear clamshell doors, and the modern glass cockpit.

The UH-145 was selected in June as the Army's next-generation Light Utility Helicopter (LUH), with a requirement for up to 322 aircraft and a potential total program life-cycle value of over $2 billion.
