Safran has been selected to supply engines for the training aircraft selected for Rotary Wing training under the UK’s Military Flying Training System (UKMFTS) programme.

Safran Helicopter Engines will provide Arrius 2B2Plus and Arriel 2E turbines for the fleet of Airbus Helicopters H135 and H145.

Arrius and Arriel engines are already contributing to training operations in the United States, Australia, France, Germany and many other countries.

With a growing market share of the H135 market, the Arrius 2B2Plus is currently in demand for operators conducting missions in demanding environments. One of its advantages is that it is enabling the H135 to carry more payload at the same altitude.
