}}This is an model of the '''Eurocopter EC135P2''', 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 v1.0 (2014) in FGAddon= Development statusThis 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/Issues/Todo ==T3 
[[File:EC135 P2 Cockpit.jpg|thumb|270px|(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. :-) Needs to tune the rotor to the guessed behavior ]]
==Development status/Features:==
===Next upcoming version v1.0 * new 3d-model more accurate and detailed, single-livery-texture-file* latest shader (2014bumpspec-reflection and glasshader)currently * new, much more accurate fdm matching 90% of Pilot Operations Handbook values AEO, OEI and Airspeed* matching tech reports in own repo on gitoriousflight handling * more different configurations possible- lowskid, midskid and highskid, different sandfilter, different radomes* 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 and me!* and of course completely Rembrandt compatible!Expected * Sounds remastered

* and more to come....
* after that: ==Issues==* no autosart yet (}- Digital Panelkey isn't working) - conversion to EC 635 (needs * electrical system has some changes on exterior and interior model)bugs* no emergency float simulation yet
