Eurocopter EC145

The Eurocopter EC145, medium, twin engine helicopter, is the latest version in a successful line that is prominent in the emergency rescue role. The aircraft is the result of the joint production effort of MBB with Kawasaki. This became part of Eurocopter.

The Eurocopter EC145 is the successor to the BK117. It retains its predecessors shape while increasing cabin size, updating avionics, and increasing engine power.

The roomy cabin of the Eurocopter EC145 can carry up to nine passengers. Rear clam shell doors are large enough to provide easy access for stretchers and medical equipment. Up to two stretchers and three medical personnel can be accommodated. A searchlight, cabin mounted rescue winch, search radar, navigation system, and emergency flotation gear are all available equipment that can be carried by the helicopter.

In addition to emergency rescue and medical transport, the versatile aircraft is used for off shore oil platform support, as an executive transport, by police and fire departments, as a water and retardant dropping helicopter, and by the military as a light utility helicopter.

Over 1,300 Eurocopter EC145 helicopters of all types have been delivered to date. Over 400 of their BK117 predecessors have been produced.
