Eurocopter is in the final stages of its certification effort for the EC175 medium-twin helicopter, which is aimed mainly at the offshore oil and gas market. The company appears confident that it can meet its target of gaining European approval by year-end.

The manufacturer’s pilots and engineers are still performing test flights. “We’ll release performance numbers very soon,” operational marketing team leader Daniel Cottard told AIN.

Demonstration flights, with customer pilots on board, have begun. The first delivery should thus happen late in 2012.
