Eurocopter Canada sells AS350 B3e helicopter

The sale was confirmed with Eurocopter Canada Limited (ECL) at Heli-Expo 2013 and Universal will use the helicopter to support its missions in Newfoundland and Labrador.

“The AS350 B3e’s extraordinary versatility and reputation as the ultimate work horse made it the obvious choice for us when selecting an aircraft,” said Geoff Goodyear, president and chief operating officer of Universal Helicopters Newfoundland. “We require the most powerful and adaptable aircraft available to satisfy our customers needs.”

The transacation will take the number of Eurocopter helicopters in Universal’s up to five five, which includes three AS350 B2’s and one AS350 BA.

“The AS350 B3e is ideally suited for the demanding Canadian Utility Market and the decision by Universal Helicopters to add an additional AS350 to their fleet is another example of the dependability of the platform,” said Guy Joannes, president & CEO of ECL. “We are pleased with Universal’s decision to select Eurocopter to expand their fleet.””
