  • EC155 B1

    The twin Turbomeca Arriel 2C2 engines are fitted with Full Authority Digital Engine Controls (FADEC) for totally automated OEI safety. The EC155 B1 has a new five-bladed bearingless Spheriflex rotor. This and Airbus Helicopters' famous shrouded Fenestron tail rotor result in a noise level that is 4.5 dB in average below the ICAO's latest standards. Airbus Helicopters has integrated its latest technologies into this new-generation aircraft. These include exceptionally low noise and vibration levels for markedly improved flying comfort. It's so quiet that passengers almost have the impression they are in a fixed-wing airliner.

    The designs for airframe and armature call for widespread use of highly resistant, corrosion-free composite materials and light alloys. The EC155 B1 offers the most advanced man-machine interface available: the "Avionique Nouvelle" instrument panel with large LCD displays that reduce the pilot's workload, improve safety and facilitate maintenance.

    The EC155 B1 offers exceptionally high maximum speed, long-haul range, and large cabin. Which is why, the EC155 B1 is often the helicopter of choice for Emergency Medical and Flying Intensive-Care missions. Lightweight modular EMS equipment means you can change mission configurations quickly and easily. The large unobstructed cabin allows room for multiple patients, medical personnel and all the material-- including bulky intensive-care equipment--they will ever need.
