SP's MAI - - AEROSPACE -

Euro­copter has com­menced the US tour of its X3 high-speed hy­brid he­li­copter, which will demon­strate the unique op­er­a­tional ca­pa­bil­i­ties of this ad­vanced trans­porta­tion sys­tem dur­ing a month of vis­its to mil­i­tary fa­cil­i­ties and hub lo­ca­tions for civil he­li­copter op­er­a­tors.

The tour was ini­ti­ated with a de­but X3 flight pre­sen­ta­tion at the Grand Prairie, Texas head­quar­ters of Euro­copter’s US sub­sidiary – Amer­i­can Euro­copter.

“We have a very am­bi­tious in­no­va­tion strat­egy lead­ing to the first flight of a new he­li­copter, a new ver­sion or a new tech­nol­ogy demon­stra­tor ev­ery year. In­no­va­tion is not just a buzz­word, it’s a way of life at Euro­copter,” ex­plained Pres­i­dent & CEO Lutz Bertling. “With the in­ge­nious de­sign and un­par­al­leled tech­nol­ogy of our X3 demon­stra­tor, we are well po­si­tioned to bring this type of he­li­copter to the mar­ket in the next 10 years.”
