Airbus Helicopters’ new EC145 T2 is certified
The newest member of Airbus Helicopters’ proven EC145 rotorcraft family – the EC145 T2 – has been certified, clearing the way for customer deliveries beginning in the third quarter of this year. Issued by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), the certification covers the full range of capabilities, including single-pilot and instrument flight rules (IFR) and single engine operations (Cat.A/VTOL), along with night vision goggle capability. Approximately 20 EC145 T2 currently are in series production, providing a solid basis for the initial deliveries and ramp-up in production rate. To date, Airbus Helicopters has received orders and options for more than 100 EC145 T2s, along with 15 of the military EC645 T2 variant for the German Army.
