    Unrivalled performance

    NEWLY-DESIGNED ENGINES

    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).

    A STATE-OF-THE-ART 4-AXIS AUTOPILOT

    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:

    • High flight stability and precision from 0 kts up to VNE (Velocity Never Exceed)
    • Airbus Helicopters’ unique flight envelope and over-limit protection
    • Automated takeoff and fully-coupled approaches (ILS or LPV) down to hover
    • Automatic management of engine failure during cruise, take-off and hover

    UPGRADED MAIN GEAR BOX

    The EC145 T2’s main gear box has been enhanced to handle higher loads, and is certified for a 30-minute dry-run capability.

     

    ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY

    Equipped with the Fenestron® shrouded tail rotor – which significantly reduces noise levels – the EC145 T2 is the quietest helicopter in its class.

    NEW COMFORT STANDARDS

    Designed for those who demand the best, the EC145 T2’s business aviation configuration unites superior taste and advanced technology for an unparalleled passenger experience.

    Passengers board easily via large sliding doors. Once inside the sleek and stylish interior, they can make the most of the uninterrupted view offered.

    The exceptionally roomy cabin allows for a variety of seating arrangements while leaving ample space for a substantial volume of luggage, to be easily loaded through the rear clamshell doors.
