The Dauphin (Dolphin) / Panther helicopter can be used in a variety of roles such as; executive transport, police, Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and Search & Rescue. These demanding missions can mean anxious and dangerous minutes spent hovering close to the sea or ground, and frequent landings on unprepared landing zones.
In addition, these helicopters must be available 24/7 for rapid deployment to any location.
The “fit and forget” PUREair system is an ideal solution for such challenging operations. It shields the engine inlet from airborne contamination, resulting in:
- Safer operation by protecting against FOD, ice, snow, and sand
- Increased operational availability
- Protection against engine erosion
- Reduced maintenance and operational costs

The Pall PUREair solution is an environmentally friendly alternative to oil-wetted barrier filters. There is no filter replacement and no daily cleaning as with oil-based solutions which are difficult and expensive to dispose of.
Other helicopter models in this family include:
- AS565 Panther – the military version
- EC155 is the AS365 N4, with a larger cabin and Arriel 2 engines.
- HH65 Dolphin which is operated by the US Coast Guard.
A certified upgrade is now available on the H425 (Z9) helicopter which provides a dramatic increase in dust separation efficiency compared to the original Dauphin unit designed many years ago.
The H425 is the Dauphin helicopter built under licence in China. The H425 PUREair system uses the latest advances in design techniques and material technologies to provide a significant performance improvement.
