A 380 AF

The Air France A380 is equipped with GP7200 engines produced by Engine Alliance with a thrust of 311 kN. This powerplant enables the A380 to fly at more than 900 km/h despite its impressive weight.
The different parts of the aircraft are produced over sixteen sites across the whole of Europe, as well as one site in Indonesia and another in India. The various component units are then put together at the final assembly line on the Toulouse-Blagnac site.
Two initial aircraft entered into service in late 2009. Number “F-HPJA” was the first to receive the new Air France livery, which will eventually feature on the entire fleet. By this date, Airbus-Industrie had received a firm order from Air France for 24 A380 aircraft.


Because it's important to us!

At Heller, we are constantly working to produce our products as sustainable as possible. In recent years, we have therefore taken many measures to increase resource efficiency as much as possible.

Recycled plastic

Since 2023, we have been producing all Heller model kits with recycled plastic. This gives existing plastic a new life in a great kit while maintaining the same quality.

No bags and film

Instead of packing our sprues in plastic bags, we use tissue paper to transport all components in a clean, protected and environmentally friendly way. Thanks to our seal closure, we do not need shrink film. This also significantly increases the recyclability of our packaging.

Oldies but Goldies

We are proud of our large archive of injection moulds. That is why we rework, repair and improve existing moulds instead of throwing them away. Great models are preserved and at the same time a lot of energy and material is saved. That's why we proudly display the year of manufacture of our moulds and the year of the last general overhaul clearly on every product box.
