Engines up to 1,000 shp
Safran Helicopter Engines, the world's number one in helicopter engines, is the only aeronautical engine manufacturer exclusively dedicated to this market, with the broadest range of engines from 500 to 3,000 shaft horsepower.
Safran's ambition is to be the first-choice engine manufacturer for the entire helicopter industry and sustain the growth of this market.
In the under 1,000 shp engine market range, Safran Helicopter Engines has developed the Arrius family (450 shp to 750 shp) and the Arriel family (590 shp to 990 shp), its "bestseller". These engines are intended for single-engine and twin-engine helicopters between 1.5 and 5 tonnes.
In this market range, Safran works with the biggest helicopter manufacturers in the industry: Airbus Helicopters, Bell Helicopter, Sikorsky, Agusta Westland, Russian Helicopters and Avicopter.
In the under 1,000 shp turboshaft engine market range, the Safran Arrius 2R recently won the contract to power the Bell Helicopter Bell 505 Jet Ranger X, while Safran confirmed its position on the Airbus Helicopters H125, H135, H145 and H155 helicopters. Safran also powers the Russian Helicopters' Kamov Ka-226T.
