Airbus (Eurocopter) EC145

Eurocopter Airbus EC 145 combines in itself the newest technical achievements of the company. One of them – the hinge-free rotor with the monolithic titanium bushing, wonderfullyrecommended itself in the course of operation.

The basic components of helicopter have the significant service life between repairs, which ensures the moderate cost of maintenance and it makes it possible to substantially reduce the dead time of helicopter for the technical reasons Eurocopter Airbus EC 145 is equipped with two powerful and reliable engines Of turbomeca Of arriel of 1E2, which in combination with the lift system of the helicopter ensure outstanding flight performances and essential power reserve even with the work on one engine.

The reliability of twin-engined diagram supplement
completely the separate fuel system, duplicated up hydraulic system, dual electrical system and reserve of
the lubrication system of main drive shaft. With the development of helicopter by priority there was the
safety of operation, which was reflected in such technical solutions as the energy-consuming fuselage
construction and of armchairs, and also ruggedized fuel sections.
Helicopter Eurocopter Airbus EC 145 is certified on the category “A” of class 1.

Eurocopter Airbus EC 145 – multi-purpose helicopter, developed a Franco-German company “Eurocopter”. The updated version has the name MBB BK 117. First flight MBB BK 117 was held in 1982. An updated version of the Eurocopter Airbus EC 145 built using composite materials.

In 2006, a military version of the Eurocopter Airbus EC 145, was ordered to the army of the United States. The deal involves the supply of 345 helicopters. The total cost (including maintenance and repair) is about $3 billion.
