Germany-based aeromedical and air rescue helicopter operator DRF Luftrettung took delivery of the first Airbus Helicopters EC 145T2 today during a ceremony at the aircraft manufacturer’s production facility in Donauwörth, Germany. DRF has a firm order for 20 EC 145T2s, which will gradually replace its BK 117 and Bell 412 fleets over the coming years. Two DRF pilots will soon ferry the new helicopter to the operator’s maintenance facility at Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden Airport, where the EC 145T2 will be outfitted with medical equipment.
