Eurocopter EC B1 – modern twin-engine helicopter of the middle class. It is the best solution for passenger transportation of VIP-level. In its category AS B1 has the lowest level of external noise and vibration in the cabin. The helicopter is equipped with 5-blade rotor Spheriflex with composite blades, integrated instrument panel (“glass cockpit”) and digital engine monitoring system (FADEC). In addition, the machine is equipped with a unique autopilot – for the first time in the history of helicopter autopilot was originally developed for helicopter and not borrowed from the aircraft. He controls not only the controls but also the operation of the engine, compensating for any changes in air temperature, elevation changes, wind gusts.
Eurocopter Airbus EC 155 B1 exceeds helicopters in its class because of the more spacious salon and higher power. It ideally is
suitable for the accomplishment of mission of any type.
This model selected about 60 companies in 28 countries of peace, are throughout the world set about 1000
helicopters Of dauphin, whose general attack composes 4 780 000 hours – on the leader of park be 26 000.
Because of the adherence of the company Of airbus Of helicopters to constant innovations the helicopter
EC155 occupies the leading positions on the technological effectiveness and effectivenesses.
Thanks to the combination of these qualities Eurocopter Airbus EC 155 is comparable to a business jet. The helicopter is convenient to use in airports with heavy air traffic, because it has a high flight speed and retractable wheeled chassis for maneuvering on the airport grounds. Depending on the configuration in the cabin is from 6 to 12 passengers. Helicopter ASW machine not ultranova, but until recently get a feel for how good it is, it was only in foreign voyages. Certification flight funds – a long, thorough; now he is safely completed, and the last version of the Dolphin family started to learn the Russian sky. Experts unanimously recognized him as the optimal solution for passenger transportation of VIP-level.
Depending on the configuration of the cabin, the helicopter takes on Board from 6 to 12 passengers and two pilots. The evaluation by the experts were taken into account, of course, and the comfort – level of noise and vibration in the cabin at 155 th is the lowest in its category.
Also taken into account and flight characteristics – at a cruising speed of 265 km/h the range is 909 km and temperatures from – 40°C to 50°C). Technical characteristics of the helicopter Eurocopter Airbus EC 155 B1 is also quite decent: for example, a unique autopilot, which for the first time in the history of the helicopter was designed for helicopter and not borrowed from the aircraft, controls not only the controls but also the operation of the engine, compensating for any changes in air temperature, elevation changes, wind gusts. By the way, thanks to this Eurocopter Airbus EC 155 B1 is quite comparable with the most that neither is “aircraft” business jet.
