Eurocopter EC 225

Eurocopter EC 225 is an improved version of the multi-purpose helicopter Eurocopter AS 332 Super Puma. It is also referred to as the Super Puma Mk II +. The decision to develop it was announced by Eurocopter in June 1998. The first prototype took off on 27 November 2000. It received certification from the European Aviation Safety Agency in July 2004. The helicopter is equipped with two Turbomeca Makila 2A engines and a so-called glass cockpit. The modified support rotor with a new profile reduces the level of vibrations compared to its predecessor. This model is currently available in four versions. In addition to the basic transport version, it is also available in a version for VIP transport with a lounge. Other variants are the rescue/medical version and the SAR model.

Eurocopter EC 225 off the coast of Brittany

The French Ministry of Defense has ordered two EC 225 helicopters to be used for search and rescue services along the coast of Brittany. Both machines are to be delivered in the middle of this year. Helicopters are designed for the French Navy.

Two more EC 225 helicopters for China

The Chinese Ministry of Transport has ordered two more Eurocopter EC 225 helicopters. Both are to be delivered in the SAR version. They are designed primarily to perform search and rescue tasks. These two new machines will be added to the two EC 225s, which were ordered in 2006 and subsequently delivered in December 2007. All four will then be operated by the CRS (China Rescue and Salvage).

Taiwan wants to buy Eurocopter EC 225 helicopters

At the beginning of February 2010, the Taiwanese authorities announced that they intend to purchase up to 20 multi-purpose EC-225 helicopters from the European manufacturer Eurocopter, designed mainly for search and rescue tasks. It is therefore very likely that most machines should be SAR. The contract, worth a total of about $ 111 million, should be concluded in the first half of this year. An unnamed military source quoted by Reuters said the contract was "practically ready".

Many international relations experts admit that after a rift between China and the United States over arms sales to Taiwan, the contract could turn China's "anger" against Europe as well.

Eurocopter EC 225 - latest model/version (fire protection)

At the Heli-Expo 2010 trade fair in Houston, which took place from 20 to 23 February, the latest version of the EC 225 helicopter was presented to the public. It was a fire modification of the "old, good Super Puma", which is after a few minutes of crew work usable as a classic transport model. It is therefore not a specialized single-purpose version, but again a multi-purpose machine.

The main task of this version is to extinguish fires of various kinds. The entire fire extinguishing system is located in the helicopter cabin. It consists of a 4,000 l water tank (or extinguishing mixture) attached to the floor of the "transport" cabin and a suction/spray device that is lowered overboard when pumping water. This entire system can be installed or removed in twenty minutes. To quickly empty the tank (when a large amount of water is needed for a small area), an opening was created in the helicopter cabin, which can be "blinded" after dismantling the fire extinguishing system. If the fire extinguishing system is dismantled, the helicopter can be used to transport cargo or people without restriction.

This version of the EC 225 helicopter is equipped with Turbomeca MAKILA 2A engines, an improved transmission system, a new main five-bladed rotor and a so-called glass cockpit with large multifunctional displays. This new model also carries a large supply of fuel (5,000 pounds), which allows this helicopter to last up to 5 hours in the air.

Fire protection EC 225 was extensively tested during forest fires in Corsica. It is certainly one of the most efficient and powerful helicopters of this type currently available on the market. The first operator of these new fire-fighting helicopters will probably be the South Korean National 119 Rescue Service.
