H215M

H215M

Rugged, fast and reliable

The H215M is a nine-tonne-class rotorcraft from Airbus’ Cougar/Super Puma family, combining the product line’s mission-proven ruggedness with a full glass cockpit, modern avionics, competitive operating and maintenance costs, and the ability to be armed for ground attack and support missions.


Competitive and multi-mission ready

The H215M is selected by customers around the world for its cost efficiency, long range capabilities and outstanding performance in high and hot environments.

Aircraft

A modern cockpit

Outfitted with a full glass cockpit and modern avionics, the H215M's flight deck is compatible with night vision goggles. Features include Airbus’ dual-duplex digital 4-axis autopilot and associated automatic flight control system (AFCS), which provide flight envelope protection, unrivalled precision and stability.

Also incorporated in the instrument panel is the Vehicle and Engine Multifunction Display (VEMD) that considerably reduces pilot workload to further enhance flight safety.

Airbus’ H215M is mission-ready – at home in hot temperatures and at high altitudes. The rotorcraft’s discretion, low vulnerability, survivability and ability to fly in icing conditions ensure maximum operability – even in the most challenging situations.

Airbus’ H215M is mission-ready – at home in hot temperatures and at high altitudes. The rotorcraft’s discretion, low vulnerability, survivability and ability to fly in icing conditions ensure maximum operability – even in the most challenging situations.

It accommodates a variety of armament, and serves as a hefty transporter – able to lift 4.5 tonnes on a sling.

Thanks to a long fuselage that provides additional payload, the H215M is reliable, rapid and highly manoeuvrable – backed by excellent power reserves from its two Makila 1A1 turboshaft engines. 

Survivable

The H215M has a rugged fuselage that includes high-energy absorption landing gear.

Crashworthy seats are installed for the pilot and co-pilot. The fuel tanks have designed-in crash resistance, while multi-purpose air intakes provide protection against sand and icing.

Maintainable

The H215M was designed with maintainability in mind. Built-in tests for the onboard avionics allow support teams to perform troubleshooting without the need of specific tooling.

The H215M’s composite main and tail rotor blades are designed for long life and protection against erosion. Maintenance access in the field is facilitated by engine cowlings that serve as a work platform when in the open position.

An exclusive Airbus feature is a 20 ft shelter-based container transportable by land, sea and air that brings the maintenance capability to remote operating sites.

It can accommodate six patients on stretchers plus 10 other passengers on medical evacuation flights.
