The Airbus Helicopters H135 is a twin-engine civilian operated helicopter, and was formerly known as the Eurocopter EC135. It entered service in 1996 and has been widely used by police and ambulance services due to a variety of its characteristics. These include high endurance, compact build, low sound levels, reliability, versatility and cost-competitiveness. The H135 aircraft operated by the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity will be on static display for the Air Show, with staff from the Charity alongside to describe their vital life-saving work.
