In operations on land and at sea, the EC145 is at the top of its class in the medium-sized, twin-engine helicopter category. With up to 12 seats for pilots and passengers, this multi-mission helicopter combines Eurocopter’s latest developments such as an advanced cockpit design, avionics and a sophisticated electrical system.
The EC145 offers a proven hingeless rotor system with a monolithic titanium hub and enhanced rotor blades which ensure low noise and vibration levels.
The EC145, the latest medium-sized (3.5 ton) twin-engine Eurocopter helicopter is the answer to an increasing demand for a multi-role helicopter.
Modern and versatile, the EC145, with its large range of optional equipment, provides outstanding flexibility for all types of missions.
The EC145 is equipped with two powerful and reliable Turbomeca Arriel 1E2 engines which provide outstanding performance and vital power reserves in OEI scenarios. The use of the variable rotorspeed and torque matching system (VARTOMS), known from the predecessor model BK117 C- 1, enhances overall flying comfort, and makes the EC145 the quietest helicopter in its class at 6.7 decibels below ICAO noise level.
In addition to environmental and economical aspects, the rotor system together with high TBO gearbox and airframe components offer both low maintenance costs and high inservice time for the helicopter due to the minimal scheduled maintenance required.
