EUROCOPTER EC135

Specifications

The EC 135 twin-turbine helicopter has state-of-the-art technology and room for six passengers and pilot.

This practical and functional helicopter from Eurocopter features a spacious cabin, large windows, rear clamshell doors and large sliding side doors, which makes it an excellent choice for medical missions, becoming a mobile ICU. It is outfitted with the most up-to-date systems in terms of instrumentation, materials and engineering, including the Fenestrong tail rotor system, which makes it safer, helping to prevent accidents. The cockpit instrumentation is grouped on a state-of-the-art fully digital display.

It also has a main rotor without bearings or hinges that, together with the parabolic blade tips, allow extraordinary manoeuvrability and great comfort, due in a large part to the built-in system to reduce vibrations.

It is particularly quiet in flight and shows great stability in the air, even at high speed.
The external noise level is 6dB lower than the limit to be set by the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization).

The EC 135 is approved as a Category A, Performance Class 1 helicopter, the highest rating for this type of helicopter.
