Turbomeca's Arriel 2E engine is certified by EASA

The Turbomeca (Safran) Arriel 2E engine, has been certified by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). The Arriel 2E, with a take-off power of 950 shp, will power the Eurocopter EC 145T2 helicopter. The first engines entry into service is scheduled end of 2013.

This follows the certification of the Arriel 2D in May 2011, to power the EC130T2 and AS350B3e Eurocopter helicopters.

Low operating costs

The Arriel 2E benefits from new technology (new axial compressor, new blade material, etc.) in a proven engine. This new engine offers better performances with lower specific fuel consumption, resulting to lower operating costs.

Its modular design, combined with a higher TBO (Time Between Overhaul), up to 4,000 hours at entry into service, then up to the goal of 6,000 hours at maturity, allow a simplified maintenance at low cost.

High reliability

The Arriel 2E engine is controlled by a new-generation dual-channel FADEC, a benchmark for efficient power control, reducing pilot's workload and increasing safety.

The new Engine Data Recorder further shifts the emphasis from traditional to preventive maintenance. These innovations also drastically reduce unscheduled removals and significantly improve helicopter availability.

High performance

The increased thermal power, the new design of many of its components enhances its already high performance and ensures that the Arriel remains the most reliable engine in its class.

Since 1978, Turbomeca has been producing over 10,000 Arriel engines. The Arriel family flying records total 37 Million flying hours with 1,300 customers in 110 countries.
