SUPER PUMA AS 332M1 HELLER The AS 332 Super Puma is a modern multi-role medium helicopter produced by the Eurocopter Group consortium (now part of Airbus Helicopters). The prototype flight took place in 1978, and the machine entered service in the same year. The helicopter - in the SA 332 L1 version - has a fuselage length of 16.79 meters and a rotor diameter of 16.2 metres. Drive is provided by two Turbomeca Makila 1A2 engines with a capacity of 1845 KM each. The helicopter has a classic layout with a single main rotor and a propeller on the tail boom. The AS 332 Super Puma helicopter was developed by the French aviation company Aerospatiale as a far-reaching development of the highly successful SA 330 Puma machines, intended for both the military and civilian markets. Compared to its predecessor, the machine received a completely new power unit, an almost completely redesigned hull (although outwardly very similar to the SA 330), a new chassis, and the whole structure was clearly strengthened. Finally, a machine was created, outwardly similar to the SA 330, but offering much greater combat capabilities and better performance. Numerous development versions were made during production, including: AS 332 B 1 (the first mass-produced military version), AS 332 C 1 (maritime version intended for search and rescue tasks) or AS 332 F 1 (maritime version of the helicopter intended for combat duties). The AS 332 machine has gained a lot of popularity and in various versions it has been or is still being used by countries such as: Brazil, Canada, Germany and Norway.
