Anyone know the max speed with the cabin doors open?
Flight with one or both cabin doors open and locked is possible with IAS < 150kts.

Does anyone know what the cabin dimensions are for this? There does not seem to be any info on the Airbus website.

In pictures It looks like the cabin is not as long as H145 but hard to say without actual measurement's.

If you put 15 bar on those at the EC155 then the rubber pieces will fly around your ears!
Main wheels are set at 8,5 bar and the nose at 5,5 bar for the 155.

I sat in the cabin in the PHI launch machine. I was very surprised by the cavernous interior. It seemed to be long and wide but not very tall. This machine is unquestionably a fine platform for corporate customers. The aircraft is very tall though, so getting it into some existing hangars may be a problem. This machine will certainly start to replace aging 76s and getting worn out 139s.

you might be surprised to learn which is the tallest of the aw189/149 and the H175 ?
both too ‘tall’ for my liking - side effect of compromising?
