Primarily used by the Orb Union, Heli's were most often operated from the Aegis-class cruisers of Orb's defense fleets as aerial scouts. In CE 71, Uzumi Nara Athha uses a Heli to fly over the battlefield after the initial Earth Alliance attack on Orb. The Heli was still in use in C.E. 73, where Cagalli used a Heli as a means of transport from her home to Orb's governmental building.
