Designed with simplicity in mind, the H120 (formerly known as the EC120 B) is both user-friendly and versatile. Its performance, comfort, cost-effectiveness and low noise profile make this lightweight helicopter the choice of private customers, corporations, law enforcement agencies and governments.

Nicknamed the “eye in the sky”, the H120 is a preferred helicopter for law enforcement agencies, which benefit from its discrete operation, effective maneuverability and enhanced safety features.
The wide, unobstructed flat-floor cabin provides room for both police forces and mission equipment, while the sturdy airframe accommodates a wide range of externally and internally-mounted items, such as forward looking infra-red (FLIR) cameras and search lights.

The H120 is used to perform surveillance, crowd control, anti-terrorist support, firefighting, drug detection and border patrol duties, among others.
