Derived from Airbus’ mission-proven Super Puma/Cougar family, the H215 is available in two different versions to deliver the performance best suited to customer needs. This rotorcraft is characterised by a proven and robust design, with a modern cockpit and autopilot inherited from the industry reference, the H225.

Airbus’ H215 offers excellent payload lift performance and cost efficiency, along with a demonstrated ability to operate in the world’s harshest environments.

A choice of two versions

The H215 is proposed in two versions: one tailored for multi-role operations; the other with a shorter cabin airframe and an increased payload for aerial work or utility duties.

Intuitive pilot assistance

The H215 is equipped with the 4-axis dual duplex digital autopilot that is utilised on the H225. User-friendly through an intuitive glass cockpit – including the real-time power margin display (first limit indicator) – the H215 provides unique autopilot assistance; precision, stability and flight envelope protection for an optimised crew workload; and situational awareness for better mission efficiency and safety even in the harshest operating conditions.

Proven and versatile

A member of the proven Super Puma/Cougar family, the H215 is a heavyweight, twin-engine CAT A-certified helicopter with outstanding performance, known for its dependable availability rate and competitive operating costs.

The multi-role version has a large reconfigurable cabin, a wide range of equipment options, a night vision goggle-compatible cockpit and all-weather capability that includes a full de-icing system. It covers the full spectrum of public service missions (SAR, medevac, law enforcement, passenger transport, firefighting, disaster relief, etc.), while also extending the roster of missions to aerial work duties.

With a shorter airframe and a lighter configuration, the version for aerial work offers an optimal payload capacity, making it the rotorcraft of choice for aerial work and firefighting missions. This version also can be configured for missions such as utility and passenger transport.
