State of the Art
Tailored for the most demanding operators, the EC225 is an 11-ton helicopter integrating all of 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, along with flight endurance that exceeds 5 hours and 30 minutes. Most of all, this aircraft meets the latest CS-29 amendments, including the 30-minute dry run demonstration for the main gear box.
Even more power
The EC225 offers high operational availability and payload, long range and fast speeds.
