Ulrich Amersdorffer, Airbus Helicopters vice president – MRO Germany said: “We are uniquely positioned to support the German Federal Police’s helicopter inventory, bringing our full resources as the manufacturer of the EC135 to ensure their readiness.”

“Responsiveness is the key to mission success for the German Federal Police. Therefore we are looking forward to benefit from Airbus Helicopters’ MRO competence in keeping the Bundespolizei’s EC135 T2i fleet in the sky” added NSPA’s Senior Contracting Officer.

The German Federal Police operates 85 Airbus Helicopters in its fleet, the EC135, EC155, AS332 L1 and EC120 helicopters.
