The Rolls Royce M250 Compressor
The M250 turboshaft engine was initially developed by the engine manufacturer Allison for the US military for use in light observation aircraft. Further developed in the 1960’s the turboshaft version was chosen for the helicopter application and entered production as the M250 and has a long history of powering some of the world’s most successful helicopters.
The engine itself has accumulated over 250 million flight hours and Euravia North America are proud to have supported these engines for over 16 years.
