A Versatile Multi-role helicopter, with designed-in mission capability and flexibility
The EC145 T2 is the newest 4-ton-class lightweight twin-engine helicopter in Airbus Helicopters’ product range. This is a “hot-and-high” evolution of the company’s multi-purpose EC145/BK117 family, and retains excellent performance levels throughout the flight envelope – even in extreme conditions.
The EC145 T2 is equipped with two modern and powerful Turbomeca Arriel 2E engines, each controlled by a fully redundant dual channel Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC).
They provide outstanding performance in all engine operative (AEO) operations, along with vital power reserves in one engine inoperative (OEI) scenarios. Includes an OEI training mode.
In compliance with EASA-OPS regulations, the EC145 T2 allows Cat A operations up to Class 1 performance levels at full maximum takeoff weight (ISA + 20°C, from Sea level up to 5,500 ft PA).

The EC145 T2 fully benefits from Airbus Helicopters’ unique experience in autopilot systems, and is equipped with the most advanced dual-duplex, 4-axis Automatic Flight Control System (AFCS) specifically designed for helicopters. It offers unparalleled pilot assistance with automatic modes integrated in the AFCS:
