1,000th Super Puma helicopter delivered
A civil H-215 to be operated by the German Federal Police
Airbus Helicopters has delivered its 1,000th Super Puma helicopter: a twin-engine multirole H-215 assembled in Marignane, France, and handed over to the German Federal Police (Bundespolizei) to support the German Havarie Command, which manages maritime emergencies off of Germany’s coast.
This delivery completes the German Federal Police’s order for four H-215s, the first three of which were delivered in December 2018, and increases the German Federal Police’s Super Puma fleet to 23, including 19 A-S332 L1s, making the police force one of the largest operators of Super Pumas in the world today.
Today, the Super Puma is operated by nearly 100 customers in 59 countries representing all regions of the world. Its family is composed of the H-215 and H-225 for the civil market, produced by Airbus Helicopters for law enforcement, aerial work, search and rescue, off-shore transport and governmental missions, and appreciated for their versatility and ability to operate in extreme environmental conditions. In the military sector, the industry offers the H-215M and H-225M for search and rescue, troop transport, special ops and utility missions.
