German Police Receive Final EC155s
Eurocopter has handed over the final two EC155B1s out of a 20-helicopter order to the German Federal Police. The helicopters were part of a fleet upgrade program, which brings the German law enforcement air wing numbers up to 87. The all-Eurocopter fleet includes AS332L1 Super Pumas used for disaster relief, sea rescues, special operations, surveillance and transport; EC120s for training; and the EC135T2i variant that conducts air rescue, disaster control and law enforcement missions.
