SP's MAI - - AEROSPACE DEVELOPMENTS -

Air­bus He­li­copters has signed a con­tract with the Sin­ga­pore Min­istry of De­fence for the ac­qui­si­tion of H225M — medium-lift he­li­copters. “We are greatly hon­oured that Sin­ga­pore has se­lected the H225M as its nextgen­er­a­tion medium-lift he­li­copter,” said Guil­laume Faury, CEO of Air­bus He­li­copters. “The Su­per Puma has served Sin­ga­pore well for the last 30 years. The ad­di­tion of the H225M to the RSAF fleet will bring a step change in ca­pa­bil­i­ties thanks to a proven, ver­sa­tile and ex­tremely mod­ern plat­form, that is able to cope with the most chal­leng­ing mis­sions”, he added.

Sin­ga­pore’s fleet of H225M will be used for a wide spec­trum of op­er­a­tions in­clud­ing search and res­cue (SAR), aeromed­i­cal evac­u­a­tion (AME), and hu­man­i­tar­ian as­sis­tance and dis­as­ter re­lief (HADR) op­er­a­tions. A proven plat­form with ex­cep­tional pay­load, a world-class au­to­matic flight con­trol sys­tem and long en­durance, the H225M has demon­strated its ver­sa­til­ity and per­for­mance even in the harsh­est op­er­a­tional en­vi­ron­ments.

The H225M is the lat­est evo­lu­tion of the suc­cess­ful Su­per Puma/Cougar fam­ily of mil­i­tary he­li­copters, with more than 500 units de­liv­ered world­wide. Sin­ga­pore is the lat­est na­tion to or­der the H225M, af­ter France, Brazil, Mex­ico, Malaysia, In­done­sia, Thai­land and Kuwait.
