Arriel 1E2 powers Airbus EC145, BK 117C and UH-72A Lakota. Arriel 1E2 builds on the essential characteristics of every Arriel, namely, a modular design to simplify maintenance and an efficient and robust gas generator.
The Arriel 2C / 2C2 variants power several Airbus Dauphin models: AS365N3+, l’AS565 Panther, and H155 from Airbus, Z9 manufactured by AVIC, and Korea Aerospace Industries LCH (Light Civil Helicopter).
A more recent Arriel variant, the Arriel 2D was certified in May 2011. It powers the Airbus H125 and H130. In service since 2011 on Airbus’ H125 and H130, the Arriel 2D offers extremely competitive operating costs, 10% lower in average than those of earlier variants.
One of the youngest Arriel family members, the 2E was certified in December 2012 and entered service in August 2014 with the delivery of the first Airbus Helicopters H145. The Arriel 2E offers 20% more power than the 1E2 installed on the EC145.
Certified in 2018, the Arriel 2H has been selected to power the AC312E developed by AVIC Harbin Aircraft Industry Group. The AC312E made its maiden flight in July 2016. The Arriel 2H is one of the most powerful Arriel variants with a take-off power rating of 986 shp.
The Arriel 2K is a 1,000 shp class of performance engine selected to power the new Leonardo AW09. It is the newest evolution of Arriel 2 family engines, the benchmark in its power class.
Certified in December 2014, the Arriel 2N is one of the latest variant of the Arriel family. It powers the Airbus AS565MBe Panther. Seventeen per cent more powerful than the Arriel 2C, it is the most powerful Arriel variant.
