French helicopter manufacturer Airbus Helicopters has expanded its presence in Poland, opening a design office in the central city of £ód¼ in February. The office will employ about 100 engineers.

A new company called Airbus Helicopters Polska will handle a wide range of tasks related to mechanical design. A special focus of the office will be “technologies of the future” in the field of rotorcraft drives and associated systems. Design work in the office will cover both military and commercial helicopters, in addition to new designs and modernization of existing types of rotorcraft.

“We can see significant potential in Poland, especially among young and skilled engineers, who have a chance to contribute to bringing in innovation in our products and systems,” said Guillaume Faury, CEO of Airbus helicopters. The newly opened Airbus Helicopters design office in £ód¼ is the company’s fourth such center in Europe, after similar facilities in France, Germany and Spain.

Airbus Helicopters’ partners in Poland include the universities of technology in £ód¼ and Gdañsk, and, since recently, the Kazimierz Pulaski University of Technology and Humanities in Radom. As part of its collaboration with Airbus Helicopters, the £ód¼ University of Technology has contributed to developing a superfast X3 hybrid demonstrator that has set a speed record for helicopters. The university has also participated in work on propellers, on the optimization of aerodynamics, and on engine integration. Polish engineers have also contributed to developing the Tiger attack helicopter and the EC725 Caracal multi-role helicopter.

Airbus Helicopters, formerly Eurocopter, is a division of Airbus Group, a global provider of services to the aerospace and defense sectors. Airbus Helicopters has a 44-percent share of the market for civilian helicopters and helicopters for law enforcement services. The company has supplied some 12,000 helicopters being used by more than 3,000 customers in more than 150 countries.
