  • Eurocopter EC225LP

The EC225 is the civilian variant and latest member of the proven Super Puma/Cougar family. With a take-off weight of 24,251 lbs (11,000 kg), the EC225 ( and its military counterpart the EC725 ) carries a fuel load of 5,000 lbs, guaranteeing a flight time of 5 hours. In addition to new Makila 2A1 engines with a stronger main gearbox and a new five-bladed main rotor, the EC725/225 features a state of the art glass cockpit featuring up to six large and redundant multifunction displays.

On November 2012 the type was grounded and an investigation on the main bevel gear shaft failures was launched after two North Sea ditching incidents on May and October of that year. 33 people were on board during these accidents, everyone survived with only minor injuries. In July 2013 SonAir, based in Angola, was the first offshore operator to resume offshore services. On June 2014 was revealed that in both cases, the emergency lubrication systems were working fine, but the switch that was supposed to detect its failure was wired incorrectly, meaning that the warning light would *always* illuminate shortly after the system's activation.

From January 1st 2014 is known as Airbus Helicopter EC225LP.
