Eurocopter EC135-T1 Helicopter


The EC135 is a French-German joint development based on the successful BO 105. This twin-engine light helicopter is characterised by low maintenance and operating costs, high availability, long service life and a wide range of applications. It is used for passenger and freight transport, as well as by the police, the military, for business flights or for offshore operations. A special feature of the EC 135 is its Fenestron tail rotor and the digital automatic flight control (AFCS).

Depending on the selected livery the EC135 has high or low skids.
