The First Arriel 2E Engine Assembled in Texas Has Been Delivered to Airbus.

Oct 29,2021

Safran Helicopter Engines has assembled, tested and delivered the first Arriel 2E engines produced in Texas to Airbus.

Until now, the Arriel 2E was produced in France. However, Safran Engines has now opened a second assembly line at their facility in Grand Prairie Texas for the engine.

The Arriel family of engines are installed on a range of aircraft, for example, the 2D is installed on the Airbus H125 and the 1E2 is installed on the UH-72A Lakota.

There are currently over 3,000 engines in service with US branches, the US army is a major operator with over 900 engines in its Lakota fleet, while the US Coast Guard fleet of Airbus MH-65 Dolphins are also powered by the Arriel.

The Arriel 2E is one of the latest variants, having been certified in December 2012 and in service since August 2014.

It offers 20% more power than the current Arriel 1E2 in the EC145.

Arriel engines are the bestselling helicopter engines in its class, with over 12,000 engines produced and 50 million flight hours.

According to Shephard Defence Insight, the Arriel 2E is capable of a cruising power of 828shp and maximum power, via the OEI rating, of 1,072shp.

Since 2012, the China Aerospace Propulsion Technology International Forum (CAPTIF) has been held in Shanghai, Xi'an, Shenyang, Chengdu, Changsha and Guiyang in turn. It has been successfully held for eight sessions, attracting more than 2000 industry experts and representatives from hundreds of enterprises in more than 20 countries around the world. Hunan aviation industry has a long history, it is not only the research and production base of small and medium-sized aero-engines in China, but also the birthplace of the first aero-engine in New China and the first fully independently developed aero-engine. It has created several firsts in the aviation industry in New China. Important member units of China's aero-engine industry have also taken root in the province. On May 2018, AECC disclosed AES100 civil turboshaft engine and AEP500 civil turboprop engine for the first time. In the future, the market prospect of civil turboshaft and turboprop aeroengines in China is broad. It is expected that by 2035, there will be nearly 3000 AES100 engines and nearly 3500 AEP500 engines.

Under this background, the 9th China Aerospace Propulsion Technology International Forum will be held in the Changsha City on November 25th to 26th , focuses on the "14th Five-Year Pplan" and medium and long-term development plan, with the theme of digital and intelligent development of aviation propulsion technology, and focuses on the "safe development and green development", "simulation technology", "advanced test and test technology", "structural strength technology" of small and medium-sized civil aviation turboshafts, turboprops and piston engines "Parts design and manufacturing technology", "new materials, new processes" and "maintenance support" and other related topics, we sincerely invite your participation to contribute to the development of technology in China.
