Air Greenland purchases two H225s
Air Greenland has ordered two Airbus Helicopters H225 heavy rotorcraft that will contribute to its bid to win a domestic search and rescue contract.
The two H225s will be repurposed from the oil and gas industry and delivered over the coming months to replace the aging S-61 helicopter currently used for this service, and Airbus will provide a maintenance and support package as well as pilot and crew training under the terms of the deal.
‘At Airbus, we are proud that the deployment of the H225 will help ensure the safety of global maritime traffic transiting the Greenland-Iceland gap to and from the Arctic region,’ Olivier Michalon, Airbus Helicopters’ head of Europe, said.
‘These two specific aircraft have low numbers of flight hours and their remarkable capability on SAR operations ensures that they will be able to provide a highly effective service in that role for many years to come,’ Jacob Nitter Sørensen said, CEO of Air Greenland, added.
The H225 is an 11-tonne category, twin-engine rotorcraft, and is the latest member of Airbus' Super Puma family and largest model that the company produces.
It has carried out in excess of 600,000 flight hours out of more than 5.5 million flight hours recorded by the Super Puma family, and is equipped with electronic instruments and a four-axis autopilot system and can be fitted with a wide range of SAR equipment.
The two-pilot helicopter can be configured with up to 18 seats or six stretchers and has all-weather capability including full anti-icing.
