The second and final day at Western Airways' facilities in Sugar Land, TX, brought about the opportunity to showcase the multi-mission capabilities of the EC175. Guests from the EMS and Law Enforcement communities stopped by for flight demonstrations and evaluations, and Eurocopter also had the pleasure of welcoming Mr. Bill Amelio, President and CEO of CHC Helicopter, to round out the U.S. Demo Tour.
During one flight evaluation with pilot Eric Von Wenckstern from Memorial Hermann Hospitals, the EC175 even landed on the hospital’s rooftop helipad, underscoring the versatility, power and performance of this new Eurocopter aircraft.
Check out some of these great images as well as direct feedback from today’s guest pilots in the video below.
The EC175 is now on its way back to Dallas, TX, before being loaded in the Antonov for its journey back to Marignane, France.
