Norsk Luftambulanse has chosen Turbomeca's Arrius 2B2Plus engine to power its three Airbus Helicopters H135 rotorcraft.

Syver Leivestad, Norsk ceo, says: “We decided to switch to the Arrius 2B2Plus on our new H135 because it delivers lower operating costs. It will allow our crews to operate with extra confidence in the most demanding mission environments.”

Specifically developed to power light helicopters, the Arrius 2B2Plus was certified by the EASA in September 2014. It is the latest member of the Arrius family and, with seven million recorded flight hours, is the most popular engine in its class. In addition to its reliability, its advantages over the earlier 2B2 variant include a six per cent power increase in hot and high conditions. This strongly contributes to the H135's ability to carry more payload at the same altitude.

To date, Turbomeca has delivered more than 3,000 Arrius engines.
