Tailored for the most demanding operators, the H225 (formerly known as the EC225) is an 11-ton helicopter integrating all the latest technological innovations.

The two TURBOMECA MAKILA 2A1 engines, the main gear box and the 5-blade rotor give this machine the power for a high payload, a long range and a fast cruise speed. Its flight endurance exceeds 5 hours 30 min. Most of all, this aircraft meets the latest JAR 29

amendments, including the 30-minute dry run demonstration for the main gear box.

The H225 also features significant advances in terms of its humanmachine interface, with state-of-the-art avionics and a brand new cockpit layout, and offers comfort for passengers and crew with its very large useful volume that accommodates various seating arrangements.

Main roles

Thanks to its modern avionics and unrivalled autopilot capability, the H225 has become the reference aircraft for long range search and rescue missions in any weather condition.

Its high useful load and five-blade main rotor, together with its low vibration level, makes this aircraft the most efficient solution for oil and gas missions and business aviation transportation.
