Airbus Highlights H130 And H145 Helicopters At AMTC

Both Were On Display At The Trade Show In Atlanta This Week

Airbus Helicopters Inc. showcased its emergency medical rotorcraft at the Air Medical Transport Conference (AMTC) in Atlanta, Georgia. On display were two of the most powerful and versatile helicopters used by air medical operators, the twin-engine H145 and single-engine H130.

As the market leader for air medical helicopters in North America, Airbus offers the most comprehensive line of aircraft utilized for helicopter emergency medical services (HEMS) operations. In the past decade, Airbus Helicopters produced more than 55 percent of all new HEMS helicopters sold in North America.

“Airbus Helicopters strives to provide the most effective and efficient solutions to air medical operators in North America, and we look forward to showcasing our products and meeting customers at this important trade show,” said Cyndi Carter, air medical segment manager at Airbus Helicopters, Inc. “Our customers rely on Airbus helicopters to ensure they can successfully execute their life-saving missions, and it is our honor to support them.”

Airbus Helicopters featured an H130 operated by Memphis Hospital Wing, a nonprofit air medical transport service based in Tennessee. The H130’s wide, unobstructed cabin allows full-body patient access as well as ergonomic and efficient movement of the patient through large sliding doors. The H130 is considered the global reference for single-engine air ambulance missions, redefining single-engine critical care air transport by combining a twin-engine size cabin with single-engine economy.

Airbus also had on display an H145 operated by nonprofit Boston Med Flight, which serves patients throughout New England. Offering full-spectrum, mission-fit capabilities, the H145 is the leading twin-engine choice for HEMS operators in the U.S. and worldwide. The latest model in the proven H145 family incorporates Airbus Helicopters’ advanced cockpit design and innovative Helionix avionics suite. Exceptional payload and range, along with a large cabin, allow for superior transport of medical teams and special medical care equipment.

Airbus has supported its partners in HEMS missions in North America for nearly 40 years. The first hospital-based air ambulance program in the United States began its operations in the 1970s with the Allouette, one of Airbus’ first serial productions.
