Airbus Helicopters and ADAC Luftfahrt Technik, the maintenance arm of ADAC Luftrettung, signed a parts-by-the-hour service contract for the air rescue organization’s EC145 T2 fleet. The ten-year service agreement with a volume of some €25m covers a comprehensive range of services for the new aircraft. The package for 14 new EC145 T2 helicopters includes technical services adapted to ALT’s requirements and provided at fixed costs. In addition, maintenance is organized so as to ensure the highest levels of helicopter availability possible. With a fleet of more than 50 helicopters, ADAC Luftrettung is one of the largest air rescue organizations in Europe. In Germany, the company operates the EC135, BK117 and EC145 models of the Airbus Helicopters range. The new EC145 T2 will gradually replace the BK117.
