The company announced its first flight with the Super Puma on June 28. Purchased on the used market, it has been configured for Erickson’s mission profile, specifically in support of Department of Defense customers including the U.S. Navy. Erickson currently has a $28.4 million contract supplying aircraft to the U.S. Pacific Command area of responsibility.

Erickson said that the H225’s advanced glass cockpit avionics, increased payload, and improved range will provide important upgrades to its existing fleet of SA330 J Pumas.

“This aircraft is an investment in our business and a commitment to our customers to bring superb performance to their growing requirements,” stated Kevin S. Cochie, VP and general manager, Erickson Defense and National Security, in a press release. “Erickson has a long legacy of serving the Department of Defense and we are ecstatic to add this platform to our complement of rotary-wing and fixed-wing platforms serving our nation around the globe.”

An Erickson spokesperson told Vertical that the company “works with our customers to deploy aircraft ideal for their mission requirements” and “will continue to grow our fleet at the requirement of the customers we support.”

Erickson’s current fleet includes approximately 69 rotary- and fixed-wing aircraft, including 20 heavy-lift S-64 Aircranes. Headquartered in Portland, Oregon, Erickson maintains operations in North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific, and Australia.
