Flying a single engine aircraft for filming mission

Due to maneuverability of aircraft required in filming mission such as a slower speed as well as flying as low as possible to stay close to the shooting scene, the twin engine aircraft would suite better in terms of safety standard.   Far stricter flight profile (the helicopter needs to maintain faster speed and higher altitude) is required for EC-130 T2 as it has only one engine.  EC-135 P2+ is a twin turbine, which means, in extremely unexpected circumstance, should one engine fails to produce sufficient torque or quit, the pilot can fly it out of the shooting scene and return to base safely, while EC-130 T2 has to glide and land almost immediately.
