   PILOOT EN VLIEGTUIG reports about the EUROCOPTER Aces !  
Enjoy our photographic impression and read the article below at this page (UK version to come)
The Dutch quality independent aviation magazine
Eurocopter manufactures several types, for civil purposes and military as well
During an airshow at Dax France we were able to compare some types
The EC-145 of the 'Securite Civile' is in service for already a longer time
 Securite Civile ordered 32 helicopters for SAR
It's an ideal helicopter for hoisting and transporting victims of any kind. This simulates a job in a hurry  
The Tigre is a real attack helicopter, and more or less a concurrent of the Apache
The Tigre however is of a later generation as the Apache and more sophisticated
Various coutries united their knowledge and demands for this 'Super-Tigre'.
The French version: Tigre HAP/HCP, or 'Support and Escort or Multipurpose Combat Helicopter'
Finally we show the latest Cougar version, the 'Caracalle'.
This concerns a multi mission helicopter, it is used also for CSAR
CSAR is a dangerous job, picking up soldiers behind enemy lines, in hostal environment.
Ok, as the pilot shows, time to move on. This 'Dax-hound' is very contempt with his situation...
We show you our last two images, a firm EC-145 hoist, and a nice badge !
