EC145e in North America Demo Tour
Airbus Helicopters and Metro Aviation launched an extensive North America demonstration tour of the EC145e.
Airbus Helicopters, August 24, 2015 - On August 24th, Airbus Helicopters and Metro Aviation will launch an extensive North America demonstration tour of the EC145e.
The EC145e, the newest addition of the proven EC145 platform, is a powerful, reliable and affordable light twin helicopter boasting a short delivery lead-time, excellent cost competitiveness, and increased useful payload.
The EC145e retains the power, performance and reliability of the existing model, and the same large cabin with clam shell rear doors for easy and safe loading and unloading.
The EC145e includes a single pilot VFR glass cockpit featuring the Garmin G500H and GTN 650 GPS and communication system. It has a maximum takeoff weight of 7,903 lbs., the same as the EC145 variant, but the useful load is increased by as much as 330 lbs. The aircraft can seat up to 11 passengers, based on the chosen configuration.
Combining the well-known features of the EC145 with the benefits of a predefined configuration - complete with a dedicated equipment list – the EC145e is perfectly suited for law enforcement missions, air medical, utility, aerial work, firefighting and passenger transport.
