                       Eurocopter EC145 T2
The Eurocopter EC145 T2 has performed its own US demo flight tour after being showcased at the Heli-Expo show in Las Vegas recently.

The aircraft performed demo flights during Heli-Expo, the EC145 continued on to California for a series of demo flights with electrical companies.

The first stop was in Los Angeles, with Southern California Edison (SCE). This company, which operates a Eurocopter-only fleet, performed with Eurocopter a benchmark of electrical line operations in the US compared with those in France.

SCE then were able to test fly the EC145 T2, the aircraft was able to show its hot & high capabilities, as well as One Engine Inoperative (OEI) performances.

The EC145 T2 travelled to Sacramento for additional demo flights, and should travel to American Eurocopter in Grand Prairie, Texas. The final step of its demo tour will be in New Iberia, Louisiana, for the Oil & Gas symposium.
