Designed from the outset with the close involvement of operators, the EC175 is suited for a wide range of missions, including offshore, search and rescue, VIP, utility and MEDEVAC operations. It features an advanced avionics suite, including a digital 4-axis autopilot, and provides occupants with the highest standards of safety-incorporating energy attenuating seats and oversized Type IV emergency exits. Utilizing a rugged aluminum alloy airframe, the EC175 integrates an MSG-3 maintenance philosophy for ease of support.
