24th June 2011 - 06:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Eurocopter today received a letter of intent from Aerotree Defence & Services Sdn Bhd for the supply of three EC135s in a training and light utility role for its business expansion in Malaysia and the region - with options to purchase more of these light, multipurpose twin-engine helicopters.

The letter of intent was issued at the 2011 Paris Air Show by Aerotree Group Executive Chairman YBhg. Dato' Hjh. Norida Hamzah, and received by Dominique Maudet, Eurocopter's Executive Vice President - Global Business & Services.

With the purchase agreement for this new EC135 fleet - which was handled through Eurocopter Malaysia Sdn Bhd - Aerotree will be positioned to diversify its activities, as well as developing services in the larger markets within the commercial and enterprise sector.

Established in 1988 as an aerospace engineering and technology development firm, Aerotree specializes in various aviation-related services, defense-related training and services, as well as aerial target products.

Aerotree's EC135s are scheduled to be delivered beginning in the first quarter of 2012, enabling the company to become one of the major lightweight helicopter operators within the region.
