    L'EC145 T2 d'Airbus Helicopters est certifié

    Après la certification de l'EC175 en début d'année, c'est au tour de l'EC145 T2 d'obtenir le coup de tampon de l'agence européenne de sécurité aérienne (EASA). Dévoilée par Airbus Helicopters en 2011, cette version modernisée du bimoteur de classe 4 tonnes devrait être livrée à ses premiers clients au troisième trimestre 2014, selon le constructeur européen.

    Par rapport à l'EC145 actuel, la version T2 amène notamment une motorisation rénovée avec deux turbines Arriel 2E et un fenestron qui remplace l'ancien rotor anticouple classique. La planche de bord bénéficie quant à elle de l'avionique Helionix développée en interne, et l'appareil dispose égalemnet d'un pilote automatique 4 axes.

    Airbus Helicopters rappelle que plus de 100 EC145 T2 ont déjà été commandés, ainsi que 15 EC645 T2 en version "militaire" pour équiper les forces spéciales allemandes. Le constructeur mise beaucoup sur cette plateforme à vocation modulaire pour répondre aux besoins des forces armées internationales, et notamment de la France avec le programme HIL (hélicoptère interarmées léger) pour remplacer les Gazelle, Fennec et Panther à l'horizon 2025.

    New EC145 T2 EMS configuration unveiled

    Airbus Helicopters has used the AIRMED World Congress in Rome to introduce a new emergency medical services (EMS) configuration for the twin-engine EC145 T2 helicopter.

    The equipment, including EMS and mountain rescue equipment, has been developed in cooperation with Mecaer Aviation Group.

    A number of options are available to increase the EC145 T2’s adaptability in EMS missions, including an outfitting option called EMS Fixed Provisions. This system has been developed by Airbus Helicopters for the 4-metric-ton category rotorcraft in coordination with EMS equipment suppliers and integrators. It provides standardised interfaces for customised hardware and systems – reducing outfitting time and providing a more rapid service entry.

    After its introduction on the EC145 T2, the EMS Fixed Provisions concept may be adapted to other Airbus Helicopters rotorcraft.

    Ralph Setz, senior marketing director for helicopter EMS and public services, Airbus Helicopters, said: 'With more than 40 years experience in EMS we offer the widest range of helicopters for HEMS operations. More than 300 customers worldwide – who deploy some 1,200 Airbus Helicopters rotorcraft in this sector – trust in our products and services for their daily operations. We are constantly committed to further developing innovations to support them in this life-critical mission segment.'

    The EC145 T2 is the newest addition to the company's twin-engine, 4-metric-ton category EC145 product line. The aircraft was certified in April 2014, with deliveries scheduled to begin later this year. Four European helicopter emergency services operators are to receive the initial aircraft.

    Airbus Helicopters is also introducing a Multi-Functional Floor for its 2.9-metric-ton category EC135 helicopter. Tailored for EMS operators, it eliminates the need for separate standard floors and those optimised for EMS missions, in order to save weight. The floor is designed for harsh environments and demanding missions, with advanced weight/performance and robustness. The system will be certified this year and can be utilised on all EC135 variants, including as a retrofit option.

    Airbus Helicopters livre le premier EC145 T2

    Airbus Helicopters a livré le premier EC145 T2 à la DRF Luftrettung (31 juillet 2014). Cette livraison au Secours Aérien Allemand (DRF Luftrettung) du premier de ses 20 EC145 T2 marque les débuts opérationnels de ce nouveau modèle qui a reçu au printemps 2014 l’agrément de l’Agence Européenne de la Sécurité Aérienne (EASA). Plus de 100 commandes ont été enregistrées pour cet hélicoptère développé et assemblé à Donauwörth. A ce jour, plus de 85 exemplaires de ces appareils ont été commandés par les grandes organisations de secours aérien en Europe. Au total une vingtaine d’hélicoptères de ce type seront livrés d’ici à la fin de l’année.

    Parmi les nouvelles caractéristiques, figurent les moteurs Arriel-2E de Turbomeca, à système de régulation électronique à pleine autorité à deux canaux (Dual-FADEC), d’un rotor de queue caréné Fenestron, d’une BTP principale plus performante et d’une nouvelle BTP pour le rotor de queue. Le cockpit est équipé de la suite avionique numérique Helionix développée par Airbus Helicopters avec un pilote automatique à quatre axes.

    SUCCESSFUL FIRST FLIGHT OF AIRBUS HELICOPTERS' EC645 T2

    Airbus Helicopters Press Release

    Airbus Helicopters’ newest lightweight military multi-role helicopter, the EC645 T2 (LUH SOF), has successfully completed its first flight. In the presence of representatives of the German Armed Forces (Bundeswehr), which has ordered the first of this new helicopter type, the EC645 T2 demonstrated its capacities at the company’s Donauwörth location in Bavaria.

    “This first flight is a milestone in the EC645 T2 program and we’re thrilled to be able to celebrate this event with our customer,” said Ralf Barnscheidt, head of the German Military Support Center. “We’re right on schedule to deliver the first EC645 T2 helicopters in the coming year. This is also a product of the close-knit collaboration between the Airbus Helicopters and Bundeswehr project teams.”

    The EC645 T2 is the military version of the civil EC145 T2 that entered into service this past summer. With a maximum takeoff weight of 3.7 tons, the EC645 T2 can be used for a wide range of military operations including transportation, reconnaissance, search and rescue, fire support, and evacuations of wounded personnel. The Bundeswehr has ordered 15 of these helicopters for the German Air Force. The EC645 T2 represents a significant addition to the German Air Force’s capabilities and offers a host of features that make it particularly well suited to missions carried out by the Special Forces Command (KSK).

    Building on the robustness, low operating costs and the especially high operational availability of the EC145 family, the new EC645 T2 is equipped with the Helionix digital avionics suite, including the four-axis autopilot developed by Airbus Helicopters. This aircraft has been optimized for day and night missions as well as for those carried out in treacherous weather conditions. Its mission equipment range also includes a fast roping system for troops, cargo hooks, hoists, various weapons and electro-optical sensors. Ballistic protective equipment and an electronic countermeasures system that detects threats help protect the helicopter and crew. Powered by two Turbomeca Arriel 2E engines, the EC645 T2 is equipped with full authority digital engine control (FADEC). What’s more, noise emissions significantly below international limits make the EC645 T2 the quietest helicopter in its class.

    The military version of the EC145 has proven its worth to customers around the world. For instance, the U.S. Armed Forces operates more than 300 of this helicopter type, which Airbus Helicopters delivered on time and on budget. These aircraft achieve an operational availability of over 90 percent on average. The Royal Thai Armed Forces recently also ordered five EC645 T2 helicopters.

    Airbus Helicopters raises the maximum take-off weight of the H145 to 3,700 kilograms

    In December, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) awarded the certification of the increased maximum take-off weight (MTOW) for the H145. With this enhancement, the helicopter can carry an extra 50 kilograms, raising the MTOW to a total of 3.7 metric tons.

    It will be available for customers in early 2016. As the improvement does not require any structural modifications or additional equipment, it will not cause extra costs for the operators.

    “By raising the MTOW, we are improving the mission capability of the H145, which is highly beneficial for operators, especially in emergency medical services (EMS), law enforcement and offshore missions, where both high payload and maximum range are directly relevant for efficient helicopter operations,” said Manfred Merk, head of the H145 program. “The new MTOW converts in pure useful load, be it more payload or more fuel.

    The H145 is the most advanced member of its family, incorporating Arriel 2E engines and the full-composite Fenestron shrouded tail rotor, as well as the innovative digital avionics suite Helionix with four-axis autopilot.

    The global H145 customer fleet has already accumulated more than 11,000 flying hours since the first delivery in July 2014. Today, some 53 helicopters are already in operation in 14 nations.
