Charlie Tango – EC135 Eurocopter
“This is an EC135 Eurocopter. One of the safest in its class. It’s equipped for night flight.” – Christian Grey
The EC135 Eurocopter is a twin-engine civil helicopter made by Eurocopter. It is widely used by police and ambulance services as well as executive transport. It carries 1 pilot and 7 passengers. It made its debut in January of 1995 at the Heli-Expo in Las Vegas and started flying around the world a few months later.
I’m guessing that Christian may have purchased the Heremes edition of the EC135. But I could be wrong as only a handful have been sold worldwide. This edition carries 1 pilot, 5 passenger and luggage, in case you don’t have a Taylor to drive your suitcase to your next destination.
The maximum speed of the EC135 is 178 MPH, with a cruising speed of 158 MPH. The maximum range of the helicopter is 395 miles. The approximate distance between Portland and Seattle is 174 miles.
The cost of the EC135? Used versions start at $3 Million and the price quickly goes up from there! Oh, to be a billionaire.
