TOKYO, Japan, 22 March 2012. Eurocopter Japan has received an order for two new AS365 N3+ Dauphins from All Nippon Helicopter (ANH) to replace two rotary-wing aircraft from its existing fleet for use in electronic newsgathering missions on behalf of Japanese national broadcaster, NHK. ANH, which is an operator for NHK in news missions, owns a fleet of 12 Eurocopter helicopters, including six AS365 N2s and six EC135 T2s. The two new AS365 N3+ will be delivered in 2013 and 2014 respectively, with high-definition cameras to be installed by Eurocopter Japan T&E – a business unit of Eurocopter Japan with design and engineering capability. The AS365 N3+ is an upgraded version of the AS365 N3. It is equipped with enhanced avionics and a unique four-axis autopilot system that helps to ease the pilot’s workload.
