Advanced Helicopter Trainer

Engineered to be the next generation Army trainer.


From the skids up, the TH-119 offers all of the attributes of a versatile advanced rotary wing training vehicle: The aircraft’s superior performance provides both students and Instructor Pilots the power margin to conduct realistic flight training yet not jeopardize their safety or that of the aircraft. All the while, retaining the proper flight handling qualities that support learning the most basic flight maneuvers such as hovering.



The TH-119 delivers the perfect blend of advanced aircraft cockpit and introductory flight training aircraft handling. Key attributes include unmatched speed, power margin, range, endurance in the single engine class of aircraft, great visibility, non-partitioned observer seat, and low Direct Operating Costs (DOCs). The TH-119 is the ideal aircraft to train the next generation of US Army pilots.


TH-119 for Army Advanced Rotary Wing Training
The TH-119 is well suited for each phase of Initial Entry Rotary Wing (IERW) training without change in configuration.  This provides flexibility and consistency for maintainers and allows student pilots to build and improve their skills throughout IERW.  Safety is of the utmost importance; the TH-119 provides impressive power margin and touchdown autorotation capability up to maximum gross weight.  In addition, its fuel range and speed allow for the utilization of airfields, airports and airspace at increased distances from Fort Rucker.  Range, complemented by superior payload capacity of the TH-119, eliminates the need to transport students and fuel to remote stage fields and training locations – an additional cost savings.

Safety Features
A unique feature of the TH-119 is the centrally located observer seat. This seat offers an unobstructed view of the entire cockpit for both observing student pilots and additional instructors.
