It is a 5 seater single engine, single main rotor, light helicopter. The EC120 is mostly built from composite materials and has a Fenestron tail rotor, making it a particularly quiet helicopter.
The design of the EC120 wide cabin makes it suitable for a wide variety of civilian and parapublic missions, such as utility transport, offshore transport, training, law enforcement, casualty evacuation and corporate transport.
