Avincis and Eurocopter sign global framework agreement, including acquisition of 10 EC145 T2 helicopters
Avincis Group (Avincis), a leading provider of aerial services for mission critical operations, and Eurocopter announced a global framework agreement that includes the acquisition of 10 new EC145 T2 helicopters for emergency medical service (EMS) work. Announced at the Heli-Expo industry trade show in Las Vegas, the agreement covers aftermarket support and training, as well as the purchase of aircraft for use by its operating companies across the world. Perfectly suited for the most demanding mission requirements, the EC145 T2 is the newest 4-ton-category twin-engine helicopter in Eurocopter’s product range. Three of these latest additions to Avincis’ 350-strong fleet will be used to deliver life-saving EMS missions services in the U.K., with the rest being destined for use in Western Europe. The initial aircraft will be delivered in the first half of 2014.
