Eurocopter’s EC725 and NH90 both have demonstrated their efficiency in the most complex operational theaters, and will be presented at Dubai Airshow.
Eurocopter designed its EC725 from the start as a true multi-role helicopter, capable of performing missions that include SAR, combat SAR, long-distance tactical transport and medical airlift, naval assignments, as well as logistics support and special operations.
The NH90’s naval version is considered as one of the most ambitious multi-national helicopter programs today which is built by NHIndustries.
“Eurocopter has the most comprehensive range of helicopters in the world, which offer solutions for Middle East and Arabian Gulf operators,” explained Olivier Lambert, Eurocopter’s Senior Vice President for Sales and Customer Relations. “Building on our 40-plus year presence in this region – with more than 600 helicopters flown by civil and military users – Eurocopter is increasing its regional footprint by teaming with local partners for fleet modernization, overhaul and maintenance. Today, this includes the Eurocopter Kingdom Saudi Arabia subsidiary, and a maintenance center in Abu Dhabi with Falcon Aviation Services.”
The EC725 and NH90 scale models, along with an EC130 version, will be included in the pavilion exhibit of EADS.
