The ‘BO105’ was the first light twin-engine helicopter in the world and the first that could perform aerobatic manoeuvres because of its advanced rotor system. It was first introduced into service in 1970 by Germany company ‘Messerschmitt-Bölkow-Blohm’. The Bo105 is still working hard in Australia and other countries conducting EMS and utility roles such as firefighting and flood relief.
The BO105 was first used for rescue and police work and then developed in the mid-1970s for the German army in anti-tank and observation roles. In 1989 the first EMS (Emergency Medical Service) BO105 entered service in Scotland, and by the time production finished in 2001 it had been operated in 55 countries worldwide. The BO105 is also well known for its aerobatic displays flying for Red Bull because of its extremely high manoeuvrability.
Our BO105 is a 5-place helicopter that can carry up to 4 hours of fuel giving it a range of over 400 nautical miles. It can also be equipped for a wide range of utility and training roles and is available for local scenic and charter flights.
