Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

Eurocopter has two version of it: the EC 135 P2i and the EC 135 T2i
 
P2 stands for the PRATT and WHITNEY PW 206B2 turbine engine with 743 PS (horsepower).
 
T2 stands for TURBOMECA Arrius 2B2 turbine engine with 706 PS.

When the Eurocopter company was founded, the Bo 108 came with. Eurocopter decided that there was a marketplace for such a helicopter and the development went on. From the French partners it got the fenestron, from MBB the hingeless rotor. The fenestron makes it very hard for dangerous situations in the range of the tail rotor and reduces the noise level about 50% to other helicopters. That's why the EC 135 is a highly recommended helicopter for EMS and the police, especially in Europe but also in the USA, Japan and other states.

Currently in Progress at this date:

Developement takes place at [https://github.com/HHS81/ec135 Github]; when milestones or other important steps had been taken, [https://sourceforge.net/p/flightgear/fgaddon/HEAD/tree/trunk/Aircraft/ec135/ FGAddon] will regularly  updated

* added ADAC Chr. 23-Livery made with photorealistic parts like Fenestron and Logos- still some things missing like lines
+
* added phtorealistic textures to exhaust and rails

This is an model of the Eurocopter EC135 P2, a light twin-engine, multi-mission helicopter.

EC135 P2 in FGAddon

This model for FlightGear simulates the EC135 P2, an older version which has been replaced later by the EC135 P2+. Since late autumn 2014 the current produced version of the EC135 by Airbus Helicopters is the much more powerful EC135 P3/T3

(02/27/2013) EC135 P2 photorealistic Cockpit with analog flight instruments. Overhead panel and many other details done as well as some important center pedestal avionics. Unfortunately the GNS430 and GTX430 are not working yet. Now it needs to connect the switches to the electrical system. FDM is finally tuned to POH and matches climbrates AEO and OEI and airspeed in about 90% all of conditions. :-)
