Eurocopter Sells Six AS350 B2 Helicopters To Coast-To-Coast

FORT ERIE, Ontario – Eurocopter Canada Limited is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement to provide six AS350 B2 helicopters to Coast-To-Coast. Three of the aircraft were delivered in 2007 and the remaining three are scheduled for delivery this year.

Based in X, Coast-to-Coast plans to use the six AS350 B2 helicopters to X. The AS350 B2 is a high performance, single engine helicopter that has become a preferred model in Canada’s civilian helicopter market as it offers superior ceiling and lift capacity.

“The AS350 B2 aircraft has proven itself in the marketplace, which is why we have ordered a total of six models for our operations,” said X. “We are confident that this helicopter will help our company achieve its business objectives in the coming years.”

Eurocopter Canada is significantly growing its operations throughout the country, including an expansion of its main facility in Fort Erie, Ontario; the opening a new logistics facility in Richmond, British Columbia; and re-establishing its operations in Quebec. Eurocopter Canada forecasts that it will deliver its 500th helicopter in Canada within the next 12 months.

“The B2 helicopter continues to build a solid reputation as a reliable workhorse,” said Marie-Agnes Veve, president and chief executive officer of Eurocopter Canada. “Clients definitely see value in the aircraft’s design and performance capabilities.”
