ILA 2006 Succes For Eurocopter EC 635

Tue May 23, 2006 2:29 am

Eurocopter’s order book for the EC 135 stands at over 550 units as ILA opens. It is the company’s top seller and the best-selling light twin-engined helicopter worldwide. In the past couple of months, the company signed a contract with Switzerland for 18 EC635s plus two EC135s for the Armed Forces, and a framework agreement with Spain for 48 EC135 law enforcement helicopters. As part of these deals, Eurocopter agreed to set up assembly lines in the two customer countries. As of 2007, the Swiss company RUAG will assemble 16 out of the 18 EC635s, with the total Swiss order being the single-highest in terms of value placed for the EC135/635 family to date. With Spain, which has already participated in the EC135 program in the past by producing components and doing customization, cooperation will be further extended to final assembly of the EC135 at Eurocopter’s newly established Albacete facility. This step is taken in view of the large Spanish law enforcement requirement and further sales potential in that country.
It will forever be a McDonnell Douglas MD 80 , Boeing MD 80 sounds so wrong
