I believe AvBuyer is the best medium for advertising aircraft and do get a lot of leads from the listings. We even get reminders to reply to inquiries, which is better than the competition.

Scott Wagner, Helicopter Marketing Associates, LLC

As a first-time user of AvBuyer I was not sure of the exposure, or support I would receive with my listing. When I reached out to a former fellow Vermonter David Olcott, I knew I had made the right decision in choosing AvBuyer as our marketing platform. It could not have been easier. The day the posting went up, there were so many people sending inquiries I could not believe it!

FAQs: Airbus/Eurocopter EC 130B4 Turbine Helicopter for Sale

Here are the most Frequently Asked Questions for Airbus/Eurocopter EC 130B4 Turbine Helicopter for sale
  • How much does a Eurocopter EC130 B4 cost?

    The Eurocopter EC130 B4 costs between $1.0m for a 2002 model up to $1.7m for a 2011 model, according to Aircraft Bluebook’s summer 2021 data. The value of an individual aircraft could be above or below the average for its model year, depending on a range of factors that will be unique to the serial number – including its airframe and engine time and condition, damage history, and the quality of its logbooks, for example.

  • What competes with the Eurocopter EC130 B4?

    The Bell 206 series competes with the Eurocopter EC130 B4 on the single-engine light turbine helicopter market. All seat five passengers in executive configuration, and have similar range capabilities of between 270 and 280 nautical miles, though the overall cabin volume of the EC130 B4 is around 10cu.ft greater.

  • What makes the Eurocopter EC130 B4 stand out?

    The Eurocopter EC130 B4 was designed to appeal primarily to the commercial passenger transportation sectors (such as the tourism and VIP/corporate sectors). Its enhanced, wider cabin compared to the earlier Ecreuil models reflects this since it allows for a more comfortable passenger ride.

  • What is the difference between a Eurocopter EC130 B4 and EC130 T2?

    The big difference between the EC130 B4 and EC130 T2 model is the engine; the T2 model upgraded to a Turbomeca Arriel 2D turboshaft, compared to the Arriel 2B1 used on the B4 model. This resulted in improved performance parameters and a 14% reduction in fuel consumption.

Airbus/Eurocopter EC130 B4 Turbine Helicopter Overview

By Matt Harris


The EC130 B4 was the initial launch model for Eurocopter’s EC130 product line. Production began in 2001, and, following some upgrades and enhancements the series continues today under Airbus Helicopters as the H130.


A single-engine light turbine helicopter, the EC130 B4 was developed from the popular AS350B3 Ecreuil model and utilizes a Turbomeca Arriel 2B1 turboshaft engine which produces 848 horsepower.


The aircraft was apparently developed in close cooperation with tour operators (the first EC130 B4 customer being Blue Hawaiian Helicopters), and its cabin can be configured to seat up to seven passengers (though in corporate/VIP configuration it usually seats five).


Eurocopter built 447 EC130 B4s, per JETNET data, before replacing it on the production line with the EC130 T2 in 2012. Although the EC130 B4 model is no longer produced, it remains a popular model on the pre-owned turbine helicopter market.


What features does the Eurocopter EC130 B4 offer?

The Eurocopter EC130 B4 has a three-bladed Starflex main rotor which is matched to a Fenestron with unevenly spaced blades that helps reduce noise by as much as 50% when compared to the earlier AS350B3 models. The EC130 B4 also offers operators a wider cabin.


Among its safety features, flight data recorders, crash-worthy seats, and redundant flight systems are installed on the EC130 B4.


What came before and after the Eurocopter EC130 B4?

The EC130 B4 was the first model in the EC130-series of light single turbine helicopters, but was developed from the Eurocopter AS350 Ecreuil. The biggest difference between the two models was that the EC130 B4 included a Fenestron instead of the conventional tail rotor used by the AS350 Ecreuil, and had a wider cabin.


The EC130 B4 was produced for slightly more than a decade before Eurocopter replaced it with the EC130 T2.
