Since March 1999 the range of standard tasks assigned to the EC 155 has continued to expand. Not all operators are as famous as the Principality of Monaco, nor as well-known as Shell SPDC with more than 6000 km of pipelines in Nigeria to monitor. Yet another large helicopter from Eurocopter is proving an excellent tool for the police and for protecting the German federal border (in February 2002 Germany was the operator of the world's largest fleet of EC 135 and EC 155 machines). Hong Kong was an early customer for the aircraft, followed by orders from the Thai police; in Germany the regional police of Baden-Wuerttem-berg and North Rhine-Westphalia have also purchased the EC 155.

The decision to procure new police helicopters at a unit price of more than 5 million EUR is justified by the rising maintenance costs of older models; at the same time the new machine's tactical advantages in operational missions have very high priority. In the 5-ton class the EC 155 covers the entire spectrum of monitoring, search tasks and aerial transport, and it is currently considered to be the best possible aircraft for law enforcement officers.

The police use the machine as an indispensable observation platform for the head of operations at mass events, and also for combatting serious criminal activities, where it is employed to carry special personnel and their equipment to the crime scene in the shortest possible time. The interior of the EC 155 is a flexible space which can be converted readily to cope with monitoring and transport missions.
The machine is also flown for environmental protection tasks, and is employed by the river police for checking navigable waters.

The EC 155 is a development of the SA 365 N Dauphin, to which it still exhibits similarities in spite of the longer, taller cabin. A revised asymmetrical arrangement of the Fenestron blades (now ten in number) has produced a reduction in operational noise by 4.5 dB below the standard set by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO); this is an important aspect for night-flying, and when searching for felons. The EC 155 can fly for longer at higher speed (max. 175 knots = 324 km / hr), whilst offering the lowest emissions of its class.

Many of our customers have asked us to produce the model with a two-bladed rotor head, and this is now the only version we offer. The recommended OS 70 provides a generous excess of power for this helicopter.

The EC 155 kit is available only for use with right-hand rotation X-Treme mechanics. The kit contents includes bulkheads, glazing set, GRP tail and various small items. The tail rotor is connected to the mechanics by a ballraced stainless steel drive shaft with articulated joints.

Like Eurocopter, we can also supply optional accessories for you to dress up your model, but with the minor difference that the external mirrors for your model are not heated.
The model illustrated is fitted out with optional scale accessories. The model is supplied in kit-form, i.e. not assembled.
