Anyone know the max speed with the cabin doors open?
Flight with one or both cabin doors open and locked is possible with IAS < 150kts.

Does anyone know what the cabin dimensions are for this? There does not seem to be any info on the Airbus website.

In pictures It looks like the cabin is not as long as H145 but hard to say without actual measurement's.

If you put 15 bar on those at the EC155 then the rubber pieces will fly around your ears!
Main wheels are set at 8,5 bar and the nose at 5,5 bar for the 155.

I sat in the cabin in the PHI launch machine. I was very surprised by the cavernous interior. It seemed to be long and wide but not very tall. This machine is unquestionably a fine platform for corporate customers. The aircraft is very tall though, so getting it into some existing hangars may be a problem. This machine will certainly start to replace aging 76s and getting worn out 139s.

you might be surprised to learn which is the tallest of the aw189/149 and the H175 ?
both too ‘tall’ for my liking - side effect of compromising?

Does anyone have access to the complete Flight Manual for the H160? The limited publicly available I have found (eg TCDS and a partial Flight Manual update) shows that MAUM is 6100 kg but MAUM for a Cat A helipad at SL in standard ISA is only 5500 kg (still air) with a minimum mass of 4500 kg. Surely that makes it a rather compromised machine? And I like the maximum personnel load is 14 (including the crew). Where do they all go? 14 people at 80 kg each is 1120 kg - not much scope for fuel even if you are not doing Cat A. It would great to have the whole picture.

Helipad is 5748kg in the conditions you speak of and the EEW is well below 4500kg for the utility configuration nearer to 3500kg.

Ok, that's fair - I incorrectly used the +30 line on the top part of the Helipad WAT chart. Do you have the procedure for calculating the TDP? The way the drop-down has to be specified to get the transfer number is a new way of looking at charts for me

All performance including TDP is calculated using the H160 Perfo App which is free on the App Store but needs an aircraft serial specific data pack.

H

Slightly remiss of me and I thought I has posted these from my recent adventures in Atlanta with seeing the first North American airframe, albeit still awaiting final Fed certification. Last year the PHi a/c was supposed to have turned up in Dallas show but did not due to lack of suitable air freight in the form of either Antonov Airlines or Volga Dnepr due to the invasion, or so I heard.

Anyhow here are my photos from month back..













cheers

I'm guessing middle joystick is for data inputs? What is rotation for?

Ergonomics I guess. You turn it to easier manipulate it.
