Description
The EC225 Super Puma is a long-range heavy transport helicopter designed, developed and manufactured by the French aviation Company Eurocopter as the next generation in the civilian Super Puma family. Tailored for the most demanding operators, the EC225 is an 11-ton helicopter integrating all the latest technological innovations. The EC255 has been designed to comply with the latest JAR 29 (Joint Aviation Requirements) amendments. It integrates all the latest technological innovations to comply with the most stringent technical and operational requirements for all types of missions. The EC225 Super puma is marketed for offshore support and VIP passenger transport duties, as well as public service missions. Approximately 70 percent of the worldwide Super Puma fleet is operated for personnel transport in support of the offshore oil and gas industry, including EC225’s now in U.S. service with Era Helicopters. The first EC225 for Era was delivered in February 2008, with seven more to follow through 2010. These aircraft are equipped to carry 19 passengers, offering the heavy-lift capacity and excellent range as oil industry exploration and production moves further offshore in the Gulf of Mexico.
Variants
- EC225 LP: An improved variant of the AS332 L2.
- EC225 Firefighting/SAR: EC225 with water bombing kits, FLIR, and all-weather radar for search, rescue, and firefighting operations

Design
The EC225 is based on the Eurocopter AS332L2 Super Puma, improving upon the design with a five-blade main rotor incorporating a new airfoil shape to reduce vibration levels.
Propulsion
The two TURBOMECA MAKILA 2A1 engines, the main gear box and the 5-blade rotor give EC225 Super puma the power for a high payload, along range and a fast cruise speed. Its flight endurance exceeds 5 hours 30 min. The 5-blade rotor provides an exceptionally low vibration level, and the modular design of the mechanical assemblies allows for easier maintenance. The EC225 has a maximum all-up weight with external load of 24,251 lbs. and a useful payload of 12,609 lbs. Fast cruise speed is 142 kts., and the helicopter has a sea-level range of 448 nm. with standard fuel, extendable to over 600 nm. with optional fuel tanks.
Avionics
The EC225 Super Puma also features significant advances in terms of man-machine interface, insuring important information to pilot and therefore decision making. The First Limit Indicator displays the available power in any condition and the power margin in AEO (All Engines Operative) and OEI (One Engine Inoperative) situations.
Mission capabilities
The EC225 is the preferred choice of oil and gas operators. The integration of the latest technologies makes this new generation aircraft the leader in the field for flight safety. It is designed with flaw damage tolerant components (rotor and fuselage). Its state-of-the-art avionics considerably reduces the pilot’s workload and thus enhances safety. Comfort and sound levels meet today’s highest standards. The EC225 complies with the latest JAR29 amendments.
Thanks to its incredible versatility and load transport capacity, this helicopter can support fire ground units. The EC225 offers a quick reaction in the most delicate situations. First & biggest internal kit for helicopter developed by Eurocopter to attack fire. Retractable pump and internal water-tank allow to drop in the full flight domain keeping its the best safety conditions.
Saving lives, in the most difficult search and rescue (SAR) situations requires a fast and high-performance helicopter. Eurocopter’s all-weather EC225 is just the machine for the job. It is the only new generation helicopter designed for all types of SAR and coastguard missions. Whether operating in arctic or equatorial conditions, the EC225 offers superior performance, safety, endurance and range. The EC225 is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment such as navigation precision (sensors, inertia reference system…) or detection device (FLIR, RADAR). Its high stability allows for ef?cient hoisting operations.
