The SH09 programme has made another step forward with the rollout of Prototype 3 (P3) in June. A fourth helicopter will reinforce the flight test fleet in the first quarter of next year. These additional aircraft will be a welcome addition to the progress on Type Certification.

Growth in the company has also come, as MSH now counts 220 employees. Among the more recent appointments are a new Head of Flight Operations and Flight Testing and a new Chief Operating Officer, both known and experienced long time professionals in the European Helicopter Industry.
The addition of personnel and plans of industrializing the SH09 indeed requires more space. A new assembly hall of 4’000 m2 is under construction and expected to be completed by year end.
