MARIGNANE, FRANCE (BNS): European defence firm EADS has added another variant to its Eurocopter family of helicopters EC175.

The 7-ton class utility helicopter EC175 took to the skies here on its maiden test flight on Friday.

The chopper has been designed and developed in cooperation with the China Aeronautics Industries Group Corp., a longstanding Eurocopter partner, the company said.
