About the Airbus H155 …
H155 Model Description
Formerly named the Eurocopter EC-155, the Airbus H155 helicopter brings together the best of both worlds with regard to versatility and comfort. This medium twin-engine helicopter is designed for a broad range of missions, including corporate, offshore transport, medical evacuation, search and rescue and police operations.
The Airbus Helicopters H155 is the most technologically-advanced rotary-wing aircraft in its category. It is powered by two Turbomeca Arriel 2C2 engines, with safety and maintainability further enhanced by the use of Full Authority Digital Engine Controls (FADEC).
Its high speed is complemented by a low external noise signature. Equipped with Eurocopter’s famous Fenestron tail rotor, the EC-155 B1 performs with a noise level that falls 4.6 dB below ICAO level. It’s so quiet that passengers feel as if they are travelling in a business jet.
