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

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.

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

The EC 135 descends from the MBB Bo 108. The Bo 108 was a demonstration prototype for fly-by-wire and has it's descent from the famous Bo 105. 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.

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. :-)

Developement takes place at Github; when milestones or other important steps had been taken, FGAddon will regularly updated

Development status/Features:

  • new 3d-model more accurate and detailed, single-livery-texture-file

  • realistic startup
  • new, much more accurate fdm matching 90% of Pilot Operations Handbook values AEO, OEI and Airspeed
  • matching tech reports in flight handling
  • more different configurations possible- lowskid, midskid and highskid, different sandfilter, different radomes etc...
  • analog dual and single IFR panel available and selectable with photorealistic textures
  • influence of configurations on weight and CoG based on Pilot Operations Handbook
  • many different liveries by Sanni, D-ECHO and me!
  • and of course completely Rembrandt compatible!
  • Sounds remastered


Todo/Expected

  • Autostart, more accurate simulation of the systems (hydraulic, ....)
  • emergency float simulation
  • Sound needs a bit work on the "exhaust sound" and the aural warning system must be done (soundfiles mostly complete)
