Eurocopter hands over 100th EC155
Eurocopter handed over the 100 th EC155 B1 to Dancopter at the Paris Air Show today. This latest hand-over also marks the 900 th helicopter from Eurocopter’s successful Dauphin family.
The Scandinavian operator is a long-standing Eurocopter customer operating already 5 EC155s in the North Sea oil and gas market, and one of the launch customers of the EC175 with 2 on order. Dancopter is the EC155B1 fleet leader in terms of flight hours logged, and therefore a natural partner in the success and development of this program.
Since the aircraft was launched in 1975, more than 950 helicopters from the Dauphin range have been sold in 64 countries. Some 300 customers operate the Dauphin today, including the U.S. Coast Guard, the French Navy, the Brazilian Army and many offshore operators.
