The H225 is the choice of commercial operators and governmental agencies for its long range and all-weather search and rescue (SAR) capabilities. As a reference in its field, the H225’s autopilot provides precision, stability, flight envelope protection, and pilot assistance – including dedicated search and rescue (SAR) upper modes.

In addition, its payload and range capability make the H225 the most cost-effective helicopter for long-distance offshore crew changes.

The H225 also has high payload capacity and versatile configurations to suit such missions as:

  • Aerial work
  • Firefighting
  • Passenger transport
  • Law enforcement
  • Utility missions

The H225 is the latest member of Airbus’ proven Super Puma/Cougar family, which has accumulated more than 5.8 million flight hours during operations around the world in the harshest conditions – including severe icing and highly challenging maritime environments. The H225M military version also has operated in the most demanding combat SAR (CSAR) missions.

H225 avionics and autopilot systems reduce crew workload while enhancing safety, especially in the most demanding mission phases or conditions, through enhanced situational awareness and automatic modes or protections.

The flight crew benefits from the real-time display of power margins, and from automatic features such as automatic level-off at low heights, an automatic collision avoidance procedure, vortex ring protection, automatic rig approach up to the visual decision point, Required Navigation Performance (RNP) approach down to LPV minima (Localiser Performance with Vertical Guidance / precision approach), search pattern, automatic transition down to hover (trans-down), and fly away.
