EC135 T3/P3 demo event kicks off in Italy




  • EC135 T3/P3 demo event kicks off in Italy


Airbus Helicopters, July 07, 2014 - Nearly 20 operators will soon be flying high over the Dolomites mountain range in Trento, Italy. Their vehicle? The EC135 T3/P3, which starts a three-day demo event in the region on July 8.

The T3/P3 is the latest upgraded version of the EC135, of which there are more than 1,100 aircraft in service worldwide, with a combined total of around 3 million recorded flight hours.

The first EC135 T3/P3 will be delivered to the launch customers this year. The aircraft is well suited for various missions, including law enforcement, emergency medical services, and the transport of private or business travelers, as well as aerial work missions.

The new model’s improved features include increased flight performance in hot and high environments, at sea level, during CAT A missions and in OEI (One Engine Inoperative) situations. This was achieved by enlarging the rotor, modifying the air intake, modernizing the FADEC flight control software and adding new features to the cockpit.

The T3/P3 Maximum Takeoff Weight (MTOW) has increased 30 kilograms to 2,980 kilograms.

These measures combined dramatically improve flight performance, power reserves and safety margins, making the aircraft suitable for a greater number of mission types.
