Airbus Helicopters Drops EC from Designations...

The only constant is change. Do you remember France's Aerospatiale and Germany's MBB, and then Eurocopter and the ECs. In 2016 the "EC" will be E-xtinct.

It's interesting when a bystander asks me what company made the helicopter I am flying. Do we say, MBB for an old BK? Aerospatiale for an old Dauphin or Astar? Eurocopter for an EC-145? Or do we simply use the current nomenclature?
