Airbus Helicopters, October 20, 2014 - The latest EC145 family member – the EC145 T2 – has been certified by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

Since the certification of the EC145 T2 by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) in April, five machines have been delivered to three customers.
Among the first customers are major EMS operators from Europe such as DRF Luftrettung, ADAC and Scandinavian Air Ambulance.
In addition to the FAA and EASA certifications, the EC145 T2 has been licensed in Australia, New Zealand, Albania, Colombia, Singapore and recently Mexico.
