Airbus H130

Inherited from the highly successful Ecureuil family (30 million flight hours logged), the 2.5-ton class, single-engine H130 (formerly known as EC130T2) is a light-weight, multi-role helicopter including all the latest technology and a roomy modular cabin that can accommodate 1 pilot plus up to 7 passengers. It is one of the quietest helicopters on the market, with its Fenestron tail rotor and automatic variable rotor speed control resulting in a significantly reduced external sound level.

The Turbomeca Arriel 2D turbine engine, with new generation dual-channel FADEC (Full Automatic Digital Engine Control) system provides increased power. It also has integrated VFR equipment coupled with a Global Positioning System (GPS) for day and night missions. This aircraft offers versatility, aligned with safety, comfort and quietness, and is particularly suitable for passenger transportation, as well as for EMS, law enforcement and surveillance missions.

Benefits include: enhanced safety features such as new energy-absorbing seats, crash worthy fuel tank and unchallenged outside visibility for crew and medical staff, increased maximum take-off power and higher speed, dual channel FADEC, VEMD (vehicle and engine multi-function display), lower noise level and cost effectiveness.

Airbus H135

The 3-tonne class H135 was developed by Airbus Helicopters, with a simple design that makes maintenance fast and easy, ensuring reliable dispatch, less down time and lower operating costs.

The aircraft can take up to 6 passengers with 1 or 2 pilots, and is known for its endurance, compact build, low sound levels, reliability, versatility and cost-competitiveness. This twin-engine helicopter is particularly suitable for EMS missions, as well as for SAR, offshore energy and power line maintenance missions.

The H135 includes interior EMS features such as cabin volume that allows for direct access to the patient in the event of emergencies, with cabin layouts that meet the highest standards in patient care, such as those required by the European EN13718.

Two full authority digital engine control (FADEC)-equipped engine options are available for the H135: Safran Helicopter Engines’ Arrius 2B2plus and Pratt & Whitney Canada’s 206B3.

Airbus H145

The H145 is the latest member of Airbus’ 4-tonne-class of twin-engine helicopters. It has designed-in mission capability and flexibility, especially in high and hot operating conditions. Compact in size, this helicopter’s small footprint and large, flexible cabin make it the aircraft of choice for a variety of civil missions.

This multi-purpose rotorcraft is tailored for emergency medical services and law enforcement duties, along with aerial work, passenger transport – including private and business aviation – and offshore operations. For multi-mission operators, the H145 can be reconfigured for different roles quickly and easily.

The H145 is powered by 2x Safran Helicopter Arriel 2E engines, and has the capacity to carry eight passengers plus one to two pilots.

Airbus H175

The 7-ton class H175 (formerly known as the EC175) was developed by Airbus Helicopters as its new-generation medium-sized rotorcraft, certified in accordance with the latest and most demanding regulatory requirements. Benefits include enhanced flight safety, more volume per seat for passenger comfort, mission versatility, simplified maintenance, and cost effectiveness to match customer expectations.

The H175 delivers on all counts with its long range, smooth ride, excellent payload lift and outstanding cabin comfort. Passengers transported in the H175 for crew change missions experience the longest air-conditioned cabin and the most space and window surface per passenger of all helicopters in this class. A maximum of four passengers are seated per row. Vibration and sound levels are very low, even at high cruise speeds.

Powered by the latest Pratt & Whitney PT6C-67E engine – the PT6C67E – the H175 benefits from strong performance and large power reserves, which support efficiency and safety during take-off and landing, rig approach, hovering and hoisting.
