Eurocopter is claiming a 64-percent share of the market for small civil helicopters in India. Last year the manufacturer delivered nine new turbine helicopters out of a total of 14 registered in the country. Five were twins, while the remaining four were single-engine AS350B3s. The AS350 Ecureuil/AStar series had a 70- to 80-percent market share in the single-engine sector over the last two years in India, Eurocopter said. Indian regulators expect to see increased use of helicopters for the upcoming election season.
