The H135 (formerly known as EC 135) is the world's most successful twin-engine light utility helicopter. It first flew in 1994, and entered serial production in 1996. The H 135 is widely used by ambulance services and the police. For military users the producers offer the H 135M, a light military version of the H 135 which is designed for combat, transport and observation.

AIRPOWER16 will feature several helicopters of this type: a civil EC 135 owned by the Flying Bulls, a police helicopter of the Austrian Federal Ministry for the Interior, an H135M of Airbus Helicopters as well as an emergency rescue helicopter of the ÖAMTC air rescue service.
