First Eurocopter EC635 for Swiss Air Force Flies
Following the first flight, the helicopter will return to the production facility for the qualification of customer-specific equipment and further tests.
Deliveries of the helicopters will take place between March/April 2008 and the end of 2009. The first four machines will be delivered from Eurocopter’s facility in Donauwörth, while the remaining 16 aircraft will be assembled and delivered by RUAG Aerospace in Alpnach, Switzerland. RUAG will also be responsible for the industry level maintenance of the Swiss Air Force’s EC635s/EC135s throughout their service life.
