Irish Air Corps EC-135P

The Air Corps currently operates two EC135 P2+ aircraft. These aircraft entered service in 2005 and operate seven days a week carrying out a wide variety of roles for the Air Corps.

On completion of the 'Wings' course, students will be streamed into either fixed wing or rotary wing operations. The EC135 is utilised as the main ab initio rotary wing training aircraft for the Air Corps. A typical rotary wing conversion course lasts approximately six months during which students will complete a variety of military rotary wing operations such as absailing drills, cargo slinging, mountain flying and tactical formation.
