Eurocopter Brings EC725 Helicopter To Poland’s MSPO

On Display At the International Defense Industry Exhibition

Eurocopter plans to display its multi-role EC725 at the MSPO International Defense Industry Exhibition at Kielce, Poland.

The company says the aircraft is the latest and most advanced member of its 11-ton military product line. The EC725’s capabilities in challenging operating conditions are demonstrated by the rotorcraft’s current Afghanistan deployment by France, as well as its performance during France’s role in NATO-led operations during the Libyan military campaign.

A joint Eurocopter/French Air Force briefing on the EC725’s operational experience in Afghanistan is planned at MSPO on the exhibition’s opening day, September 3. Designed to fly under the most extreme weather conditions, its avionics includes highly advanced four-axis autopilot with full flight envelope protection. The helicopter’s large cabin enables to transport up to 28 soldiers and carry a wide variety of weapons and sensors. Mission applications for the EC725 range from tactical transport and special operations to combat search & rescue and maritime patrol.

“The EC725 offers the full benefits of Eurocopter technology and innovation in a highly versatile helicopter,” said Olivier Michalon, the Vice President of Sales & Customer Relations for Europe and Central Asia. “This is combined with Eurocopter’s capability to develop and implement longstanding industrial cooperation with local companies, and is backed by the resources of our EADS parent company – which has been present in Poland, through PZL-Okecie since 2001.”

Establishing successful industrial partnerships with customer countries is a key element of Eurocopter’s strategy, as demonstrated by the assembly of 50 x EC725s in Brazil for its armed forces, the establishment of a United States production line for the 346 x UH-72A Lakotas– a version of the EC145, which has become the U.S. Army’s new Light Utility Helicopter.

With a total of 54 EC120, EC130, EC135 and EC145 helicopters Eurocopter has an established significant market leading presence in Poland. The delivery of 23 life saving EC135s to Poland’s LPR (Lotnicze Pogotowie Ratunkowe) , modernized the country’s nationwide emergency medical services (EMS) network.
