The H215M is a nine-ton-class rotorcraft from Airbus Helicopters' 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.
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 Helicopters' 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 Helicopters' H215M is mission-ready – at home in hot temperatures and at high altitudes. The rotorcraft's discretion, low vulnerability, crash 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 tons on a sling.
Thanks to a long fuselage that provides additional payload, the H215M is reliable, rapid and highly maneuverable – backed by excellent power reserves from the two Makila 1A1 turboshaft engines.
