Eurocopter delivers a third AS365 N3 helicopter to Japan’s Fire and Disaster Management Agency.
The new aircraft began operations yesterday in the Miyagi Prefecture as a replacement for its BK117 C-2 which was damaged during the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake.

“In the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami in 2011, disaster relief and reconstruction works were greatly assisted by the use of helicopters,” stated Stephane Ginoux, president & CEO of Eurocopter Japan. “The addition of the highly efficient AS365 N3 will enhance the capabilities of the Miyagi Prefectural Government in managing on-going works and future requirements. We are committed to continue providing our full support to our customers working under such difficult conditions.”
