The only H145 that flies in Chile and is operated by Ecocopter has completed a thousand hours of flight. Due to its high-altitude safety and performance features, the H145 was the first new generation twin-engine helicopter for the utility market in Chile, consolidating air services with high safety standards for this type of mission and especially in the mining sector, today it monopolizes 95% of its operations.
The H145 has remarkable capabilities for various operations and has excellent performance even at high altitudes, enabling high-tonnage precision loads. Its four-bladed main rotor has a low noise level and is ideal for missions of all kinds, especially in hostile environments and congested areas such as large cities.
We are proud to present the H145 in Chile, where we have established ourselves in highly complex services and incorporate new technologies year after year. Today we celebrate the thousand hours of flight of this powerful and safe aircraft, and no doubt they will continue to multiply as it has become a benchmark for the various operations we carry out, says Francisco Arriagada, Commercial Manager of Ecocopter.
Another benefit of the H145 is its versatility and the ability to be reconfigured for other missions such as emergency medical transport. With a spacious cabin, flat floor and easy loading thanks to the sliding side doors and the double rear door. It has an autonomy of 2h 39min and reaches a cruising speed of 248 km / h (134 knots).
