Bond takes delivery of first EC145T2 in UK

November 18, 2014

Late last week, Bond Air Services took delivery of the first EC145T2 in the UK – serial 20012 – arriving by air on a German test registration D-HADM.  This helicopter has since been registered with the UK CAA as G-HEMC and would be ordinarily expected to go through various certification and paperwork exercises before commencing commercial operation – particularly as the first of type in the UK.

There are three known EC145T2s due in the UK, one for East Anglian Air Ambulance, which they announced in November 2011 with the expectation of the aircraft being in service for December 2013.  The other two expected EC145T2s in the UK are for the Scottish Air Ambulance, announced June 2012 as due in 2014. It thus seems logical to assume the first delivery is for East Anglian Air Ambulance.
