Germany orders up to 44 H225 helicopters for its policeThe German Ministry of the Interior has ordered up to 44 Airbus H225 helicopters for its Federal Police. This record order includes 38 firm orders with options for a further six helicopters. Its payload, range and advanced systems make it a versatile helicopter capable of conducting a wide variety of law enforcement and homeland security missions ranging from special forces transport to firefighting and disaster relief. Deliveries are scheduled to start in 2029.

Bruno Even, CEO of Airbus Helicopters, said: “I would like to thank Germany for its continued and renewed trust in our helicopters and in particular in our H225 family. We are proud that the helicopter will contribute to the security of Germany and help its citizens in need. The Bundespolizei can look forward to a modern helicopter thanks to the continuous improvements w have made to our H225 in recent years. It will remain one of the most advanced helicopters available on the market for decades to come.”

The H225 will replace the H155 and AS332 helicopters that have been in service with the German Federal Police for more than 20 years. The order of the H225 will ensure a seamless transition for pilots and maintenance personnel. The contract also includes training means and spare part packages.

Improved situational awareness

The new and powerful mission and communication system guarantees improved situational awareness and smooth data transmission between police forces. It also has an improved main gearbox and an extended health and usage monitoring system, which increases safety and helps to save costs. With a maximum take-off weight of 11,160kg, the H225 offers an increased range of more than 832km (1,107km with external fuel tanks) and an unmatched external payload of 4,750kg, essential for missions like disaster relief and firefighting. Airbus Helicopters’ ambition is that the helicopter will be able to fly with 100% sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) by 2030.

The German Bundespolizei operates 94 Airbus helicopters, ranging from the single-engine H120 used for pilot training, to more than 40 twin-engine H135 family helicopters for several missions including emergency medical services on behalf of the Federal Office of Civil Protection and Disaster Assistance (Bundesamt für Bevölkerungsschutz und Katastrophenhilfe), and the Super Puma family, of which the H225 is the latest variant. The partnership began in 1962, when the Bundespolizei (at that time Bundesgrenzschutz) started operation of its Alouette II, manufactured by Airbus predecessor company Aérospatiale.

Offering the industry’s best range, speed, payload and reliability in the 11-tonne twin-engine category, the H225 is the latest member of Airbus Helicopters’ Super Puma family that has accumulated more than 6 million flight hours in all-weather conditions around the world. Equipped with ‘state of the art’ electronic instruments and renowned autopilot precision, the H225 offers outstanding endurance and fast cruise speed, and can be fitted out with various equipment to suit a variety of roles.
