Capitale HÃ©licoptÃ¨re has chosen its fourth EC130 B4 aircraft to assist with utility missions throughout Quebec. The sale was confirmed today with Eurocopter Canada Limited (ECL) at Heli-Expo 2012 in Dallas, Texas.
“The EC130 B4 is a versatile aircraft that is suitable for a variety of missions,” said Guy Joannes, President and CEO, ECL. “We are pleased that Capitale HÃ©licoptÃ¨re has chosen another Eurocopter aircraft to meet customer demands.”
With the selection of the EC130 B4, Capitale HÃ©licoptÃ¨re’s fleet will have a total of 12 Eurocopter aircraft, including 5 AS350 B2’s, 4 EC130 B4’s, 2 AS350 B3’s and 1 EC120 B.
“Eurocopter helicopters are the cornerstone of our fleet,” said M. Danny Ricard, President, Capitale HÃ©licoptÃ¨re. “We look forward to continuing our superior customer support and service with an additional EC130 B4.”
The EC130 B4 is a light 7-8 seat single engine helicopter which offers exceptional qualities of silence, comfort and space. Low external noise emission (-8.5dB better than ICAO requirement), due to the low noise “Fenestron” and the FADEC system (Full Authority Digital Engine Control), in order to optimize noise signature in over-flight without operational limitations.
