Airbus Helicopters Southern Africa (AHZA) has delivered a H125 rotorcraft to Namibia's Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism.

The helicopter was ordered last August and is designed for day and night operations, to be used on missions, including those to battle poaching.
 
The custom equipment fitted includes an SX Nightsun light for night-time flights and a cargo swing for large items and animals can be carrier.
 
It will typically be flown by a pilot and able to carry up to five passengers on flights of up to four and a half hours over 630 kilometres.
 
 The helicopter was assembled at AHZA’s Grand Central, Midrand base near Johannesburg, South Africa, before being delivered to Windhoek.
 
The Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism’s pilot was also trained at AHZA, and was one of the first to use the new AS350/H125 helicopter flight simulator.
