HTM Helicopter Travel Munich signs LoI for EC145 T2


New helicopter will join company that uses fleet to service offshore wind farms

HTM Helicopter Travel Munich has signed a letter of intent to acquite an EC145 T2, adding this aircraft to its fleet used in the servicing of offshore wind farms.

In HTM Helicopter Travel
Munich’s operations, the twin-engine helicopter will be qualified for single
and dual-pilot offshore operations and equipped with systems that include an
automatic flight control system, weather radar, moving map, traffic advisory
system, external winch, cargo hook and emergency floats.

“Performance counts in our
business, and this helicopter provides what we need to meet the operational demand,”
said Hans Ostler, the chief executive and owner of Helicopter Travel Munich, at
Heli-Expo 2012 in Dallas. 
“Our activities are growing, and we look forward to introducing the EC145 T2
for new and ongoing offshore wind farm projects.”

“Eurocopter understands the
high demands made on a helicopter in wind farm servicing, which is one of the
reasons why we evolved the EC145 T2 version,” Wolfgang Buchner, head of Central
Europe Sales. “HTM Helicopter Travel Munich will fully benefit from the
EC145 T2’s capabilities when the aircraft enters its inventory in 2014.”
