The Arrius 2B2Plus variant entered service on the H135 in 2014. This combination has become increasingly popular among operators, especially those dealing with demanding missions like emergency medical services, search and rescue, or military training.
Like all Arrius 2 versions, the 2B2 is notable for high levels of reliability and simplified maintenance procedures.
The most competitive engine in its category
Arrius 2B2Plus delivers increased power at take-off and during hot and high missions compared to the earlier 2B2 version, together with lower direct operating costs. The engine has also one of the highest TBO (Time between Overhaul) in its class (4000 hours).
With more than 3,800 units delivered to 430 customers in 60 countries and over 10 million operating hours, the Arrius family covers a power range of 450-750 shp and flies in both single and twin-engine light helicopters.
Over the years, the Arrius range has maintained its status as the most competitive and robust engine solution for the light helicopter market, and it continues to be selected for new models.
