Eurocopter has delivered five EC135s to the commercial company of the Turkish Aeronautical Association, THK Gökçen Aviation. The aircraft will be used to provide medical airlift duties throughout Turkey.

The aircraft are part of a larger plan that will see a fleet of 17 EC135s deployed for helicopter emergency medical services for the Turkish Ministry of Health. The remaining helicopters will be delivered in spring 2014.

Olivier Lambert, senior vice president for sales and customer relations, Eurocopter, said: ‘Turkey is a growing helicopter market and we are glad the EC135 continues to accompany the project of the Turkish Ministry of Health. With THK Gökçen Aviation we have gained an excellent partner to strengthen our footprint in this strategically important country.’

The helicopters will start operations in August.
