Airbus H225e / EC225e

First announced at Heli-Expo 2014, the new EC225 is powered by two Makila 2B engines. Certification is targeted for late 2015, followed by the delivery start-up in mid-2016.

In February 2016, as a cost reduction measure the Makila 2B engine was cancelled.

Following the Norwegian helicopter accident the EC225 lost their offshore market place and Airbus efforts were redirected to the H175
