EC135s to Serve Spanish Police Forces

The Spanish Ministry of the Interior has placed an order for 12 Eurocopter EC135 P2i aircraft. Spain’s National Police Force will receive six of the helicopters for law enforcement, and the other six will go to the Spanish Guardia Civil. Assembly will take place in Albacete, Spain. Eurocopter plans to deliver the first four helicopters in 2010, with four in 2011 and the rest in 2012. The National Police and Guardia Civil currently operate seven EC135s each. Eurocopter is working on two additional contracts that would bring the combined fleets of the two units to 51 EC135s as part of a helicopter modernization program. (From Rotorcraft Report)
