19 passenger transport seats
22 troop transport seats
The two-pilot and 19-seat configuration is adapted for commercial passenger transport and offshore operations. The air-conditioned cabin and energy-absorbing seats in a staggered arrangement increase passenger comfort, while a central “aisle” and large windows impart a sense of space. In its one- or two-pilot configuration with 19-seats, the H215 is well suited for passenger transport duties.
In its troop configuration, the H215 long seats one or two pilots and up to 22 troops on utility seats in a mixed back-to-back and face-to-face configuration. Easier access for equipment and personnel is provided through two large sliding doors in the cabin.
SAR or medevac
In its two-pilot, medical configuration, the H215’s long cabin can accommodate a variety of layouts. A sample configuration includes a stretcher and up to nine seats for cabin crew, including medical attendants, plus patients. Large access doors and unobstructed space provide for efficient cabin operations.
In its two-pilot, multi-stretcher configuration, the H215 is ideal for casualty evacuation (casevac) missions. A number of configurations are possible, with a mix of crew and/or passenger seats or space for up to six stretchers.
