In the last few weeks, the Argentine Federal Police have taken delivery of two new helicopters from Airbus Helicopters production plant in Germany. As usual, the two-tone blue aircraft carry large tactical codes as well as much smaller ATC registrations on the tail. The new aircraft are the first acquisitions for two and a half years when they acquired their second EC135 (see story) and these latest deliveries will see the last two Bo105s replaced. The whole fleet now consists of one BK117, two EC145s and three EC135s, with one of the EC145s in an all-white scheme for VIP transportation duties.
The new aircraft are:-
H14 LQ-FQG EC135T2+ (serial 1132) – delivery around now – was still test flying in Germany mid February.
