State of the Art
Tailored for the most demanding operators, the EC225 is an 11-ton helicopter integrating all 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, along range and a fast cruise speed. Its ﬂight endurance exceeds 5 hours 30 min. Most of all, this aircraft meets the latest JAR 29 amendments, including the 30-minute dry run demonstration for the main gear box.
The EC225 is the preferred choice of oil and gas operators. The integration of the latest technologies makes this new generation aircraft the leader in the ﬁeld for ﬂight safety. It is designed with ﬂaw damage tolerant components (rotor and fuselage). Its state-of-the-art avionics considerably reduces the pilotâ€™s workload and thus enhances safety. Comfort and sound levels meet todayâ€™s highest standards. The EC225 complies with the latest JAR29 amendments. Moreover, the mission role change from passenger transportation to light SAR is easy and quick thanks to:
ADELT (Automatically Deployable Emergency Locator Transmitter for Helicopters)
Optional pod for additional fuel tanks or luggage compartment
Certiﬁed for ﬂights in known icing conditions, the EC225 allies modern technologies to reach unequalled levels of safety : 30 minute dry run main gearbox, self deployable emergency ﬂoatation device, TCAS II (Trafﬁc Collision and Avoidance System) linked to the Autopilot.
The wide air-conditioned cabin can comfortably accommodate up to 19 passengers on new energy-absorbing seats in staggered conﬁguration, allow for more shoulder space between passengers.
In the case of an emergency, all windows are large and push out to allow easy egress and thus quick and easy access to integrated life-rafts. To increase the baggage space, extra large lateral sponsons can be added.
With its lifting power capacity, endurance and manoeuvrability, the EC225 is always up for the most rigorous hot and high missions and sling work. The high performance of the EC225 allows for easy sling operations. Thanks to the VMSÂ®, pilots can concentrate more on their missions. During sling load transportation, the helicopter is very stable thanks to its 4-axis auto-pilot and the design of its landing gear. Its powerful engines and hook capacity allow for heavy lifting. Certified equipment and proven procedures ensure high levels of safety.
Maintaining and repairing the National Grid using helicopters is a huge responsibility, which involves a large variety of demanding missions, including:
Eurocopter has built-up a worldwide reputation in designing and producing executive helicopters. Many heads of state and corporate executives select the Super Puma family for its outstanding qualities. The EC225 continues this tradition while offering a higher speed, longer range and increased comfort. The vibration level has been significantly reduced thanks to the new 5-blade rotor and state-ofthe- art anti-vibration system. The enhanced soundproofing and the efficient air conditioning system give passengers the impression of being on board a business jet.
The spacious cabin (15.50 m3 / 547 ft3) lends itself particularly well to the transportation of executives. Various layouts are possible with front and rear lounges, galleys and bathrooms for carrying 8 to 12 passengers.
Thanks to its incredible versatility and load transport capacity, this helicopter can support ﬁre ground units. The EC225 offers a quick reaction in the most delicate situations.

Saving lives, in the most difﬁcult search and rescue (SAR) situations requires a fast and high-performance helicopter. Eurocopterâ€™s all-weather EC225 is just the machine for the job. It is the only new generation helicopter designed for all types of SAR and coastguard missions. Whether operating in arctic or equatorial conditions, the EC225 offers superior performance, safety, endurance and range. People in distress? The EC225 arrives fast on the scene, tackling the tightest areas, for quick assistance. It provides an ideal platform for both survivors and crew with its low vibration levels and exceptional comfort. Equipped with cutting-edge technology, such as its outstanding human-machine interface and automatic ﬂight control system (AFCS), pilots have everything they need at their ﬁn-gertips to perform precise, safe and successful missions. And because the EC225 requires minimal maintenance, pilots can perform cost-effective missions, again and again, with absolute conﬁdence. It's really no wonder that the EC225 is the preferred choice of the most demanding SAR operators.
The EC225 is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment such as navigation precision (sensors, inertia reference systemâ€¦) or detection device (FLIR, RADAR). Its high stability allows for efﬁcient hoisting operations. It can be equipped with a rotor de-icing system to ﬂy in all-weather conditions.
