A member of the well-known Super Puma/Cougar rotorcraft family, the H215 is a heavy-weight, twin-engine helicopter with outstanding performance, known for its high availability rate and competitive operating costs. It consists of two versions, one tailored for multi-role operations (formerly designated AS332 L1e) and the other for aerial work/utility duties (formerly designated AS332 C1e).
With the first scheduled to roll off its Romanian final assembly line in 2017, all H215 helicopters will be built in a highly-capable standard configuration – able to support an extensive list of “optionals.” This new concept allows the rotorcraft to best meet customers’ expectations and serve a wide range of missions.
Combining performance and cost-effectiveness, the H215 multi-role helicopter in the longer airframe variant is a highly efficient machine for parapublic service missions.
For law enforcement duties, it can carry a fully-operational special team and its equipment to deployment locations day and night, along with a hoist, fast-roping beam and night vision goggle compatible cockpit.
When outfitted with multi-patient medical interiors, the H215 is a versatile medical evacuation platform, while the helicopter’s overall performance and range enables extended-duration search and rescue missions.
