Eurocopter has
delivered the 100th helicopter to the civil and parapublic fleet in China, after entering the Chinese market 45 years ago.

Exhibited during the ABACE event at Shanghai is the Eurocopter twin-engine EC135. The helicopter fleet in China includes 14 EC135s, which are flown in business aviation, passenger transport and public services including emergency medical services missions.

In addition to the EC135, the EC120, the Ecureuil family, the enhanced EC145 T2 and the EC155 helicopters are being showcased.

Eurocopter’s overall civil and parapublic helicopter fleet in China has now reached the 100 mark, with the milestone helicopter – an EC120 – being provided to an investor group that will provide tailored solutions to support the development of helicopter flying clubs.

With the growth of the Eurocopter product in China, the infrastructure has been strengthened with a EC225 simulator being installed in Beijing.
