The EC130 T2 is a light single-engine helicopter including all the latest technology and a roomy modular cabin that can accommodate 1 pilot plus up to 7 passengers.
It is the quietest helicopter on the market: its Fenestron® tail rotor and automatic variable rotor speed control result in a significantly reduced external sound level.
The Turbomeca Arriel 2D turbine engine, which includes a new generation dual-channel FADEC (Full Automatic Digital Engine Control) system with a third independent and automatic back-up channel, provides increased power. Integrated VFR equipment coupled with a Global Positioning System (GPS) are standard for day and night missions.
All EC130 T2 systems are newly improved and very easy to maintain.
Thanks to its formidable visibility, quietness, comfort, performance and safety, this versatile helicopter is a key member of Eurocopter’s Ecureuil family.
The EC130 T2 is particularly suitable for passenger transportation, as well as for EMS, law enforcement and aerial work missions.
The EC130 benefits from the proven experience of the Ecureuil family. It integrates Eurocopter’s most advanced technology: the well-known Fenestron®, a dual-channel FADEC unit with a third independent and automatic channel for engine control and an automatic variable main rotor speed system to reduce external sound level.
It is fully equipped with a VFR day and night navigation system (standard “ready to fly” package) associated with a VEMD® integrated instrument panel and a GPS map display. All these innovations make the EC130 the safest and the most high-tech aircraft in its category.

STARFLEX® Main rotor head
This proven and reliable component has an automatic variable speed control system that systematically adapts the rating of the main rotor to the flight phase in order to reduce the external sound level, without jeopardizing available power.
This newcomer in the successful Ecureuil range is equipped with the brand new Turbomeca Arriel 2D engine and more than 70% of the airframe has been modified. This substantially increases the versatility of the EC130 T2, making it better equipped to answer to the challenges of additional missions such as hot and high operations and aerial work.
Thanks to its optimized maintenance cost and operational benefits, it is a truly economical solution always combined with the highest level of safety.
