Airbus Helicopters has achieved factory acceptance of the last six of the EC135T2+ helicopters for the Helicopter Aircrew Training System (HATS) for Australia, completing deliveries of 15 helicopters.

Under the JP9000 Phase 7 HATS project, a new joint helicopter training program for Royal Australian Navy and Royal Australian Army will utilise 15 EC135T2+ helicopters, along with flight simulators and a new flight-deck equipped sea-going training vessel. Boeing Defence Australia is the prime contractor for the new training system, partnered by Thales Australia who supplies the flight simulators and synthetic training devices.
