It has been 50 years since the BO105 embarked on its maiden flight on 16 February 1967 in Ottobrunn near Munich.

Conceived as a two-tonne-class light multi-purpose helicopter, cutting-edge technologies and materials led to the BO105 being the first helicopter to feature a rigid, hingeless rotor head made of titanium and glass-fibre-reinforced rotor blades. With more than 400 aircraft still in use, customers around the world value the BO105 for its versatility, robustness and reliability.
