Eurocopter and AVIATORS sign contract for seven EC135 aircraft
Marking a key milestone in India’s development of modern heliborne resources to support lifesaving missions, AVIATORS signed a firm order for an initial batch of seven Eurocopter EC135 aircraft for helicopter emergency medical services (HEMS) operations. A second order is expected to be carried out later this year and rapid growth is anticipated in the HEMS market – as many as 50 helicopters are expected to be deployed throughout the country in the coming years. With first deliveries planned to take place by late 2013, AVIATORS is establishing itself as a pioneering HEMS operator in India.
