Texas Aviation Services, a helicopter completions specialist with a 140,000-sq-ft facility in Fort Worth, Texas, said it has completed and delivered an executive Eurocopter EC 120B Colibri to a private customer.

Among the client demands was a four-color custom designed paint scheme to match that on the customer’s Pilatus PC-12. The EC 120B was equipped with an extensive avionics package built around a Chelton FlightLogic EFIS system, a WSI/Sirius satellite weather data receiver, a traffic advisory system and Garmin components including a GNS 430 navcom and G330 transponder.

The five-place cabin is outfitted with high-grade leather upholstered seats, luxurious carpeting and audio entertainment provided by an In-Flight stereo system heard through Bose headsets. For safety, the Colibri was furnished with an emergency float kit by Aerazur.
