On January 30 of this year, Airbus Helicopters successfully obtained EASA Type Certification on the EC175 powered by the PT6C-67E. Designed especially for the medium-sized twin market, the engine is equipped with the latest technology dual-channel FADEC control system to optimize pilot workload. The powerplant also includes new technologies to provide reliable starting with excellent emissions, especially low NOx levels, and very low smoke. After having technically supported the demo tour of the EC175 in the United States and Asia in 2013, Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) is now putting additional effort into the entry into service of this helicopter by deploying the necessary technical support and services via its worldwide network of over 30 P&WC-owned and designated service facilities and its extensive team of more than 100 field support representatives located close to the operators’ bases. P&WC congratulates Airbus Helicopters and is proud to be part of this significant milestone.
