Just a few days ago I was flipping through my local newspaper and an article caught my attention. It was a press release in regards to a new
helicopter for the Edmonton Police Service. The strange thing is that the EPS already has an EC 120 which was brought into service eight years ago, so
that makes it two as of now.
Now I’m a little suspicious because of the fact that not only is there two watching eyes in the sky but a more sinister agenda is becoming more
apparent. It should come as no surprise to some of you that the police state in every city across the globe is beefing up their manpower, firepower
and equipment to deal with unruly individuals and groups who threaten the N.W.O.
So I ended up doing some digging into the company responsible for the manufacturing of the two EPS EC 120’s. (Source material taken from
The Eurocopter Group is a European helicopter manufacturing and support company formed in 1992 from the merger of German Daimler-Benz Aerospace
(DASA) and the helicopter divisions of French Aerospatiale. As a result of the merger from Eurocopters former parent company, the firm is a wholly
owned subsidiary of EADS. As of 2007, more than 9,800 Eurocopter helicopters were in service with over 2,500 customers in 140 countries.
Products Made by Eurocopter
• AS 332 Super Puma – medium sized, twin engine transport/utility helicopter • AS 350/AS 355/EC 130 Ecureuil – light utility helicopter
• AS 365/SA 365 Dauphin – medium weight ,multipurpose, twin engine helicopter • AS 532 Cougar – twin engine, medium weight, multipurpose
helicopter • AS 550/AS 555 Fennec – Single engine, light weight, multipurpose helicopter • AS 565 Panther – military medium weight,
multipurpose, twin engine helicopter • EC 120 Colibri (with Harbin Aircraft Manufacturing Company) 5 seat, single engine, single main rotor, light
helicopter. • EC 130 – light helicopter • EC 135 – twin engine, civil helicopter • EC 145 – twin engine, medium utility helicopter
• EC 155 – long range, medium lift, passenger transport helicopters • EC 175 – medium sized, twin engine transport/utility helicopter
(Unveiled at the Heli-expo 2008) first flight planned for 2009 • EC 225 – long range passenger transport helicopter • EC 635 – military light
multipurpose helicopter • EC 665 Tiger – military attack helicopter • EC 725 Cougar – long range tactical helicopter • MBB Bo 105 – light,
twin engine, multipurpose utility helicopter • MBB/Kawasaki BK 117 (with Kawasaki Heavy Industries) – twin engine medium utility/transport
helicopter • NH90 – medium sized, twin engine, multi role military, fly by wire helicopter (via joint venture)
Due to its 62.5%-share, Eurocopter also participates on the production of the NH90 Utility Helicopter Project. On some of Eurocopter's aircraft
the main rotor turns clockwise when viewed from above, unlike most American rotorcraft. This requires the pilot to make pedal movements that are the
opposite to those learned if previous flying has been on an American aircraft. On models developed in Germany or with their input (BK 117, EC 135, EC
145, UHT Tiger, Bo 105, et cetera) this is not the case. Eurocopter also pioneered the use of the "fenestron", an enclosed tail-rotor, which is more
efficient and safer than the exposed version.
Design and development
The EC120 B is mostly built from composite materials and has a fenestron (shrouded) tail rotor, making it a particularly quiet helicopter (FAA
Appendix J flyover noise signature = 78.7 dB SEL, 6.7 dB SEL below Stage 2 limits). Certified to FAR 27 standards, the EC120 B also features
crash-resistant seats and a crash-resistant fuel system. The design of the Colibri's wide cabin (featuring excellent visibility) makes it suitable
for wide variety of civilian and parapublic missions, such as utility transport, offshore transport, training, law enforcement, casualty evacuation
and corporate transport. In the casualty evacuation role, the helicopter can carry one pilot and one stretcher patient as well as one or two medical
attendants. For cargo carrying, the Colibri can carry one pilot plus 2.94 cubic meters (103.9 cu. ft.) of total useful load volume (cabin and hold).
The EC120's 0.8 cubic meter (28.3 cu. ft.) hold is accessible from the side and rear. In addition to its civilian roles, the Colibri is also used by
the military for training, observation and light utility missions. In the latter role, it can carry a sling load cargo of up to 700 kg (1,543 lb). The
EC120 B is able to carry equipment such as FLIR cameras, spotlights and other useful tools. Some law enforcement agencies using the EC120 B include:
U.S Customs and border protection agency, the Edmonton Police Service, Calgary Police Service and the York Regional Police
The first EC120 B was delivered in 1998 and by 2008 Eurocopter had already delivered more than 550 Colibris to various customers. In 2004, the DHS
and the CBP selected the EC120 B to meet its Light Sign Cutter requirement, a program potentially involving 55 aircraft with a total value of US$ 75
million in then-year dollars. In 2006, the CBP ordered 15 EC120 B helicopters, with a further 5 aircraft since ordered. In January 2008, the French
Defense Ministry selected the EC120 as the French's Army new lead-in rotary-wing trainer, replacing the Aerospatiale Gazelle. 36 EC120 Bs equipped
with Sagem avionics will be operated through a 22-year public private partnership (PPP), with the first aircraft due to arrive in 2010.
It`s obvious that this company his ties with the Military industrial complex and various agencies around the world. The DHS must have invested quite
a bit into this model, given how quietly it can operate without anyone really noticing.
