US Helicopters takes delivery of an AS350 B2

American Eurocopter has announced the delivery of an AS350 B2 to US Helicopters. The company has served dozens of major television stations located in cities in most of the lower 48 states.

Over half of US Helicopters fleet consists of American Eurocopter AS350 series aircraft. The new AS350B2 is part of a fleet renewal program by US Helicopters. It will replace an AS350BA operated in support of a Chicago-area television station since 2001.

“Our plan is to continue to upgrade our current fleet and add even more AS350B2’s as we move forward,” said Horne, founder and CEO of US Helicopters.

“We are grateful for the continued business from US Helicopters, Inc.,” said Treg Manning, American Eurocopter vice president of Commercial Sales and Marketing. “Even though helicopter services are generally the first to go when television stations cut budgets, US Helicopters, Inc. has remained a loyal customer. They have found that the AS350 meets their needs by providing high performance, extended range, flexibility and reliability
