American Eurocopter Delivers 250th EC135 In The U.S.

Med-Trans Corporation Of Dallas Takes The Milestone Aircraft

American Eurocopter said Monday at Heli-Expo that it has delivered its 250th EC135. The milestone helicopter was recently delivered to Med-Trans Corporation of Dallas. “It has been a year of milestones for American Eurocopter,” said Marc Paganini, President and CEO of American Eurocopter. “This 250th delivery of an EC135 showcases the popularity of the platform in the United States and how much our market has grown in the last several years.”

The EC135 made its U.S. debut in 1995 at Heli-Expo in Las Vegas, with the first delivery in 1996. The United States is the second largest market for the EC135, and the aircraft has accumulated some impressive delivery numbers. It has become one of the most popular light twin-engine helicopters in the United States and has accounted for the majority of all light twins delivered into the U.S. civil helicopter market over the last 10 years. Eurocopter claims that, since 2006, the aircraft has accounted for 92 percent of U.S. air medical light twin helicopter deliveries.

Med-Trans originally purchased eight EC 135s in 2007, citing a thorough evaluation process of several models from several manufacturers before making its final decision. “As our company continues to experience steady growth, we recognized several years ago that the EC135 would meet and exceed many of our partners’ aircraft needs based on their geographic locations, as well as overall mission needs,” said Fred Buttrell, President and CEO of Med-Trans. “Providing aircraft options at good economics is critical for continued partner satisfaction, as well as meeting the needs for patient care.”

This milestone helicopter brings the number of EC135s in Med-Trans’ fleet to 16. The aircraft will be placed into service with the Carilion Clinic Life-Guard air medical program located in Virginia.
