Jan. 8, 2010 – In nearly 30 years of service, the Makila has built a reputation as a safe and reliable power unit for Super Puma and EC225 operators. Turbomeca VP, Engine Programs, CyrillePoetsch says that, "The 2,000 engines have cumulated more than eight million hours of service, often while flying in extreme conditions within offshore, military and SAR environments. The 2A1 is the latest variant, offering customers 14% more power and reduced operating costs. The Eurocopter EC225 and the Makila make a well-proven team."

"In the UK,the Makila has been chosen as the powerplant for the upgrated Puma transport helicopter for the RAF, to enable it to better operate in Afghanistan", saysTurbomeca UK CEO Christian Hamel.
