EASA certifies the EC175

  • EASA certifies the EC175


Airbus Helicopters, February 04, 2014 - The certification of the EC175 has been completed, with the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) issuing the type certificate on January 30, 2014.

"This is a major milestone for the program," said Airbus Helicopters President and CEO Guillaume Faury. "This year, we will deliver the first three EC175 helicopters to our clients."

The EC175 climbs through chilly territory in northwest Canada

Flying in arctic temperatures will soon be just the latest achievement of the EC175. The recently certified medium helicopter traveled by Antonov to Canada’s Northwest Territories on January 24 to undergo cold weather trials, which, when completed, will extend the aircraft’s scope of certified operational capabilities.

The trials are underway in the territories’ capital city Yellowknife, located just 400 kilometers south of the Arctic Circle. This polar city was chosen due to its freezing temperatures and the logistical support provided by local operator Great Slave Helicopters.

Since the EC175’s arrival, the mercury has already dropped to more than 30 degrees below zero Celsius, though the team is waiting for even colder temperatures to blow in.

The cold weather flights will last three to four weeks and will be followed by hot weather and altitude trials later this year.

Airbus Helicopters’ team of 14 experts on the ground includes test pilot Olivier Gensse, two flight test engineers, a prototype team and mechanics.
