Eurocopter Romania delivers an EC135

Romanian Ministry of Health EC135Recently a ceremony was held in Bucharest
where Eurocopter Romania
delivered an EC135 helicopter to the Romanian Ministry of Health. The ceremony was attended by the Romanian Minister of Health Ladislau Ritli, the Secretary of State in the Romanian Ministry of Administration and Interior Mihai Capra, HIs Excellence Henri Paul from the French Embassy in Romania and from Eurocopter, Jean-Louis Mascle, chief executive of Eurocopter Romania and Xavier Poupardin, vice president for the EC135 programme.

This is the first delivery following a contract that was awarded to
Eurocopter Romania
last August. The Ministry of Health might purchase up to six helicopters from this new contract. The Ministry of Health already owns two EC135 operated by the General Aviation
Inspectorate of the Ministry of Administration and Interior (MAI).

At the ceremony, Mascle talked about the importance of this new
delivery: “This is a big day for Eurocopter Romania, as the delivery of this
EC135 illustrates our commitment to designing products in close cooperation
with our customers and to further promoting development of emergency medical
missions. It is also additional proof of the confidence the Romanian government
has placed in our subsidiary.”
