The AS332 Super Puma is a medium-weight helicopter with a large cabin and exceptional lift capability. With excellent power reserves, operational safety level and comfort, the AS332 is well suited for offshore and other civil operations, as well as para-public uses.

A full de-icing system (rotor blades, engine air inlets, stabilizer and windshields) enables flight in known icing conditions, and the Super Puma is equipped for true all-weather IFR operations.

The latest AS332L1e variant shares the same highly acclaimed integrated advanced cockpit and automatic flight control systems found on the EC225.  This new version of the AS332 offers enhanced flight envelope protection and increased safety levels, along with full compatibility for such new-generation mission equipment as forward looking infrared (FLIR) sensors, helicopter terrain awareness and warning systems (HTAWS), digital map units, and traffic alert and collision avoidance systems (TCAS).

Integrating the latest technologies in safety, aerodynamics, avionics and maintenance, the AS332 has proven to be a worldwide best-seller, with approximately 70 percent of the Super Puma fleet being operated for offshore transport.

For utility work, the Super Puma’s takeoff weight of more than 20,000 lbs. can accommodate heavy loads, and its maximum cargo sling load is 9,920 lbs. Large sliding doors allow the transportation of bulky freight, while the helicopter’s rear access facilitates the handling of long loads.

Designed-in ruggedness for the Super Puma includes a reinforced airframe and high-energy absorption landing gear, along with crashworthy main frame tail boom, transmission deck and cockpit floor.

For high-end passenger operations, the Super Puma’s spacious cabin can be outfitted with VIP interiors that include lounges, a galley and toilet. Luggage storage is in an independent compartment at the rear of the aircraft.
