HeliAir Sweden has recently procured a second EC120B helicopter. The EC120B will be used to help with power line inspections, fire-fighting and collapsing trees. As reported by Eban Magazine.

HeliAir Sweden are also going to sell their three MD500s, and demonstration flights were made last week to initial interested parties. Their fleet currently holds three Squirrel AS350s (two B2s and one B3) which have been installed with floats, two EC120s, a Huey and the three MD500s.

The new EC120B is favourable as it has better visibility, larger cabin and luggage area, reduced noise levels and better hydraulics. It is also better equipped to fly in snow and lasts fur hours on one fuel tank. HeliAir Sweden is currently looking into the idea of purchasing a twin aircraft such as the 355N.
