A member of the well-known Super Puma family, the heavy twin H215 helicopter is demonstrating its multi-mission capabilities for firefighting, law enforcement, power line missions, and passenger transportation as well as its exquisite performance in high and hot conditions during its debut demo tour in China. There they are scedualed for a 2-weeklong tour with demo flights to Zhuhai, Shenzhen and Lijiang. The H215 will cover more than 2,000 km across China, authenticating in real time to its excellent long-range capabilities, power, speed, and large useful payload.
Airbus Helicopters are the leader in the civil turbine market in China with a market share of about 40%. In 2016, China became Airbus Helicopters’ largest civil market in terms of annual bookings. The company has seen consistent growth in the region and is steady for the trend to continue. Airbus Helicopters broke ground last month on its H135 Final Assembly Line (FAL) in Qingdao, making them the first Western helicopter manufacturer to establish a FAL in the country.
Customers will be invited on-board the helicopter to appreciate its exquisite performance, high reliability and advanced technologies. The H215 will also showcase its admirable firefighting capabilities, performing a series of flight demonstrations using a Bambi Bucket to extinguish fires. Proving the H215 is a multipurpose helicopter. It combines advanced avionics and a reliable platform for rugged multi-mission capabilities. Its baseline contour has been developed to offer extremely competitive direct operating and maintenance costs.
Standard features include proven Makila 1A1 engines, the latest generation flight management system, and the most modern technologies, which include a glass cockpit avionics system and the renowned 4-axis autopilot from Airbus Helicopters’ advanced H225.
Vincent Dufour, VP Commercial Airbus Helicopters China stated,
“The H215 will easily complement the current fleet of nearly 40 Super Puma aircraft already performing a wide range of missions in China, from oil & gas operations to aerial work to VIP transportation. This highly robust and versatile rotorcraft provides excellent performance and will be a real asset for the country as the demand for helicopters to protect its citizens and natural landscapes continues to increase.”
