Hervé Jammayrac: On Board The Demonstrator With The X3 Test Pilot

Season 2, Ep. 10

Over the course of its three-year journey, Airbus Helicopters' high-speed helicopter demonstrator, the X3, performed nearly 200 flights on two continents, while breaking a world record and pulling off incredible stunts – like racing a high-speed TGV train. 

Guiding the X3 each step of the way was test pilot Hervé Jammayrac. On the tenth anniversary of X3’s first flight, Jammayrac, now chief test pilot at Airbus Helicopters, reminisces about those memorable times.

And don't miss the next two episodes in this series, with head of research and innovation, Tomasz Krysinski, X3 flight test engineer Dominique Fournier, and U.S. tech rep Jonathan Hubbell.
