Description: The Eurocopter's EC 135 is a lightweight, twin-engine, low operating costs, multi-mission helicopter intended for the civil market. A militarized version called the EC 635 has been developed from the EC 135. It can be powered by either Pratt & Whitney PW206B2 engines (EC 135P2 designation) rated at 570-hp or Turbomeca Arrius 2B2 engines (EC 135T2) rated at 597-hp. Both power plants feature Full Authority Digital Electronic Control (FADEC) which provides optimized performance, safety and fuel efficiency.

The EC 135 helicopter incorporates composite materials and the latest aerodynamic refinements to get an enhanced speed and range performance. The Fenestron tail rotor and the main rotor offer high maneuverability and enhanced comfort through vibration reduction. Its avionics and glass cockpit have become Eurocopter's benchmark for next generation helicopters such as the EC 145. A conventional configuration cockpit is also available for the EC 135. In addition to the pilot, the EC 135 can accommodate up to seven passengers.

The EC 135 helicopter has been adapted to conduct primarily VIP/passenger transport, law enforcement, emergency medical service (EMS) and rescue missions. Eurocopter delivered the 400th EC135 to Transportes Aéreos Pegaso of Mexico on 28 April 2005. Since mid-1996, when it entered service, to April 2005 it has captured 65 percent market share. In the law enforcement and EMS segments the EC135 represents 80 percent of the total orders.

The Eurocopter EC135 T2e and P2e are enhanced versions of the EC135 light twin-engine helicopter having an increased maximum takeoff weight of up to 2,950 kg. The new extra weight translates into a 40-kg gain in payload and allows an extra passenger to be carried by the EC135 T2e/P2e aircraft. Eurocopter launched the enhanced EC135 at Heli-Expo 2011. Certification is anticipated by mid-2011. Henceforth the improvements will be standard on all new production EC135s and offered for retrofit as well on in-service helicopters.
