The EC130 T2 will join Peak Aviation’s fleet, consisting entirely of Eurocopter products, including; two EC130 B4’s, one AS350 B3 and an AS350 B3e, that was recently delivered in March 2012.
“The EC130 T2 will be a welcome addition to round out our diversified Eurocopter fleet. Our decision to add the EC130 T2 was justified by the growing needs of our customer base,” said Guy Tremblay, President, Peak Aviation Inc. “The purchase of the EC130 T2 is just another step toward enhancing our capabilities in the Quebec market.”
Peak Aviation has selected the EC130 T2 to assist with their charter services in the Quebec region. The aircraft will work as a platform for shooting movies, photos and utilization of infrared equipment. The EC130 T2 will also be carrying out customer transport in the area.
“The enhanced EC130 T2 has already gotten a lot of positive attention in the business and private market and we expect the momentum to continue” said Guy Joannes, President and CEO, ECL. “We are pleased that Peak Aviation has chosen the EC130 T2 to meet the needs of their growing customer base and we will strive to ensure we continue to provide excellent support.”
The EC130 benefits from the proven experience of the Ecureuil family. It integrates Eurocopter’s most advanced technology: the well-known Fenestron®, a dual-channel FADEC unit with a third independent and automatic channel for engine control and an automatic variable main rotor speed system to reduce external sound level. It is fully equipped with a VFR day and night navigation system (standard “ready to fly” package) associated with a VEMD® integrated instrument panel and a GPS map display.
The EC130 T2 incorporates all the latest state-of-the-art technologies, materials, systems and avionics. In the open space cabin, passengers can enjoy the spectacular view and are comfortably seated on a raised “theatre-style” platform in the rear. The forward-facing, energy absorbing seats provide passengers with ample legroom. The low internal sound level and the efficient air-conditioning system contribute to making it a smooth journey.
The EC130 T2 offers many possibilities for operators thanks to its wide, unobstructed, flat-floor cabin, able to accommodate an array of equipment to provide outstanding mission flexibility. The exceptional cabin size makes the EC130 T2 the perfect choice for cargo transportation. During load transportation, the EC130 T2 remains remarkably stable thanks to the design of its landing gear and the large horizontal stabilizer, combined with its large cabin.
