The first EC725 to be fully assembled in Brazil was handed over to the Brazilian navy on June 17, Airbus Helicopters said. The previous 11 EC725s received by the Brazilian armed forces were only partially assembled in Brazil, or supplied direct from Airbus Helicopters’ production line in France.

New approval from French aviation authorities has cleared the way for Helibras to add to its product range by manufacturing the large-cabin EC225 helicopter on behalf of its parent group, Eurocopter, in addition to these smaller models.

Helicopter service, support and manufacturing specialist Helibras (Helicópteros do Brasil) recently received authorization from France’s DGAC aviation authority to produce the Eurocopter EC225 in Brazil.
