Posted by jhadmin

A contract for two new Airbus Helicopters Dauphins, along with deliveries of three Dauphins this month, have underscored the importance of this twin-engine aircraft family in Japan – particularly with the country’s law enforcement and firefighting agencies. The latest order was signed with Japan’s National Police Agency for one H155 version (previously known as the EC155) to be deployed by the Kagawa Prefectural Police, and an AS365 N3+ variant for the Fukuoka Prefectural Police.
