The Eurocopter Group is a European helicopter manufacturing and support company formed in 1992 from the merger of Germanmarker Daimler-Benz Aerospace AG (DASA) and the helicopter divisions of Frenchmarker AĆ©rospatiale.

As a consequence of the merger of the Eurocopter Group's former parents, 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.


Eurocopter manufactures or has manufactured the following types of helicopters:

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.
