  In 2005, NH Industries’ NH90 helicopter was selected to replace the Royal New Zealand Air Force’s aging UH-1 Iroquois, which would remain in service until 2009. A firm deal was finalized in July 2006, and New Zealand will buy 9 NH90-TTH variant helicopters

The Ministry of Defence acquisition project and the RNZAF has formed a Helicopter Transition Unit (HTU) to manage the operational and technical aspects of the introduction Into Service process for these helicopters. The Aircraft will ultimately be operated by 3 Squadron, RNZAF.
