Airbus Helicopters delivered the first two H135 helicopters with Helionix in police configuration to its Brazilian customer Ciopaer.
The two delivered helicopters will be used to reinforce public security in Ceará State, as well as providing support for aeromedical operations in other regions of the state.
Ciopaer’s fleet already includes two AS350s and four twin-engine helicopters of the H135 and the H145 family.
“The pilot’s workload is facilitated by the stability of the aircraft, which helps to maintain a constant altitude,” said Ciopaer’s Lieutenant Colonel Marcus Costa.
“It can transport two pilots and five crewmembers, has flight autonomy of more than three hours and has special equipment such as a searchlight, electric winch, rescue kit and infrared camera.”
“These deliveries strengthen our partnership with the Government of Ceará and increases Ciopaer’s twin engine Airbus fleet, demonstrating the excellent cost-benefit of these models.
We appreciate Ciopaer’s confidence in our products and services,” said Richard Marelli, CEO of Helibras.
