Indian based AVIATORS Pvt Limited have ordered seven Eurocopter EC135 helicopters.

Indian based company signed, in the presence of French President François Hollande, a firm order for an initial batch of seven Eurocopter EC135 aircraft for helicopter emergency medical services (HEMS) operations. A second order is expected to be carried out later this year and rapid growth is anticipated in the HEMS market in India, as many as 50 helicopters are expected to be deployed throughout the country in the coming years.

With first deliveries planned to take place by late 2013, AVIATORS is establishing itself as a pioneering HEMS operator in India.

“As the EC135 is a global reference in helicopter emergency medical services, it is highly appropriate that AVIATORS will introduce such operations in India with these extremely capable helicopters,” explained Norbert Ducrot, Eurocopter senior vice president for Asia Pacific.
