The H225 is a long-range passenger transport helicopter developed by Eurocopter (now Airbus) as the next generation of the civilian Super Puma family. Designed primarily for the offshore oil & gas market in the 24 passengers class segment. This heavy helicopter has proved very popular on the VVIP market for government officials and the head of state transportation.

The H225 first flew on November 27, 2000, prior to entering service in July 2004.

The H225 design is based on the AS332 super puma (H215 ), replacing the four-blade with a  five-blade main rotor with a new airfoil shape to reduce vibration and noise levels. The H225 is powered by two dual-channel FADEC equipped Turbomeca Makila 2A1 turboshaft engines mounted over the cabin.

The H225 features a full glass cockpit with four  10-inch multi-functional displays, complemented by two 6.4-Inch  monitors for displaying aircraft parameters, and a 3-inch backup screen.
