Airbus Helicopters has delivered its 1,000th twin-engine multi-role H215 Super Puma helicopter to the German Federal Police (Bundespolizei) to support the German Havarie Command, which manages maritime emergencies off of Germany’s coast.
The German Federal Police’s Super Puma fleet now stands at 23, including 19 AS332 L1s, making the police force one of the largest operators of Super Pumas in the world today.
The German Federal Police had ordered four H215s and the first three helicopters were delivered in December 2018.
“The Super Puma family of civil and military helicopters has consistently performed well thanks to its ability to appeal to many different mission segments, whether you’re fighting fires, building power lines, transporting troops, or saving lives in extreme environments,” said Bruno Even, CEO of Airbus Helicopters. “Thanks to our close partnerships with long-standing customers like the German Federal Police, whom we are honoured will operate our 1000th Super Puma, we are able to continuously improve so that this important product continues to meet the evolving market needs for decades to come.”
Today, the Super Puma is operated by nearly 100 customers in 59 countries.
The Super Puma family is composed of the H215 and H225 for the civil market and the H215M and H225M military variants.
