Airbus Helicopters has secured an additional
order of one H225 helicopter from the Japan Coast Guard (JCG),
bringing JCG’s H225 fleet to ten units.
JCG currently operates three AS332s and
five H225s, both from the Super Puma family.
With this new order, the customer’s Super Puma
fleet will grow to 13 units by March 2021, becoming the largest
Super Puma operator in Japan.
The new H225 will join the rest of the fleet in
security enforcement, territorial coastal activities, as well as
disaster relief missions in Japan.
“We are honoured by the renewed H225 order from
our customer of over 25 years, as it bears testament to the
quality of our long-standing partnership and our customer’s full
trust in Airbus’ products and support,” said Olivier Tillier, Managing
Director of Airbus Helicopters in Japan. “We are also delighted to
see how our Super Puma helicopters continue to perform excellently
in all the missions. With its inherent versatility and
reliability, we know the H225 will continue to be a capable
workhorse for the JCG’s missions. The Airbus Helicopters team in
Japan remains committed in our support to ensure continued
availability of the fleet.”
The 11-ton-category twin-turbine H225 is the
latest member of Airbus Helicopters’ Super Puma family which
accommodates up to 19 passengers.
Equipped with state-of-the-art
electronic instruments and the renowned 4-axis autopilot system,
the H225 offers outstanding endurance and fast cruise speed, and
can be fitted with various equipment to suit any role.
In Japan alone, a total of 21 helicopters from
the Super Puma family are currently flown by civil, parapublic
operators and Japan’s Ministry of Defense for various search and
rescue missions, offshore operations, VIP, fire-fighting, and
passenger and goods transportation.
