American Eurocopter showcases EC120 and AS350 helicopters at police show

Eurocopter EC120American Eurocopter will be displaying an
EC120 from Lake County Sheriff’s Department at this year’s International Association
of Chiefs of Police (IACP) convention in Chicago.
The aircraft will be featured on the American Eurocopter exhibition stand.

Lake County purchased the EC120 to rejuvenate its fleet of aging
military surplus helicopters with the most modern helicopter equipped with the
best mission equipment available. “The EC120 is the ideal replacement for
military surplus helicopters,” says Ed Van Winkle, law enforcement market manager
for American Eurocopter. “It is known for its excellent maneuverability and its
quiet Fenestron tail rotor, which are both distinct advantages for airborne law
enforcement applications.”
