On January 30 of this year, Airbus Helicopters successfully obtained EASA Type Certification on the EC175 powered by the PT6C-67E. Designed for the medium-sized twin market, the engine is equipped with the latest technology dual-channel FADEC control system to optimize pilot workload.
After having technically supported the demo tour of the EC175 in the United States and Asia in 2013, Pratt & Whitney Canada 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.
