Eurocopter’s final assembly line in Albacete, Spain, in late November delivered its first aircraft, an EC 135. The first customer is the Spanish army, but the plant is expected to deliver both civil and military EC 135s. The factory in Albacete is one of Eurocopter’s two final assembly lines for the EC 135, the other being
in Donauwörth, Germany. Eurocopter aims to deliver at least 13 EC 135s from the Spanish facility this year.
