Description: The Airbus Helicopters H120, formerly the Eurocopter EC120 B Colibri, is single engine lightweight helicopter intended for both commercial and military applications. It can carry up to four passengers in addition to the pilot. The fuel tanks and pilot/passenger seats are crashworthy for enhanced survivability in the event of a malfunction. The H120 Colibri helicopter also features very silent and comfortable design and a wide cabin which yields excellent visibility.

The EC 120 B Colibri/H120 was developed with simplicity of design and low costs of maintenance in mind. It makes extensive use of composite materials, modern avionics and uses a new generation shrouded tail rotor. The power plant consists of a single Turbomeca Arrius 2F engine. The multi-purpose H120/EC120 Colibri helicopter suits training, observation and utility requirements for both commercial and military customers. As of 2005, Eurcopter has delivered more than 400 EC120 helicopters. The HC 120 designation applies to EC 120s built in China for its local market.
