19 seats for passenger and offshore transport

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.





The two pilot and variable seating configuration is suited to search and rescue (SAR) operations. A sample layout consists of a seating for six in cabin for those rescued and cabin crew including one console operator. For high-volume rescues, the H225 can be configured with up to 18 seats or up to six stretchers.




11 seats for VIP transport

The two pilot and 11-seat configuration is a solution for VIP transport, with a front lounge outfitted with four armchairs, a second area with six comfortably-appointed VIP seats and one flight attendant seat, with room for a toilet. Sound-proofed and air-conditioned, the cabin’s space and quiet benefit both work and having a conversation.
