New Zealand Helicopter Emergency Medical Services Takes Delivery of Two Airbus H145s

The New Zealand Helicopter Emergency Medical Services has taken delivery of two Airbus H145 helicopters, the first two H145s in an EMS configuration in the New Zealand market.

“I’m proud that Airbus’ helicopters are providing vital medical services and assisting the communities between Christchurch and Dunedin operated by New Zealand Helicopter Emergency Services,” said Airbus Australia Pacific Managing Director, Andrew Mathewson. “This multi-purpose helicopter is tailored for emergency medical services and law enforcement duties, along with aerial work, passenger transport - including private and business aviation - and offshore operations.”

The H145 is a market leader for emergency medical services and rescue missions, thanks to its well-established HEMS heritage with its BK117 and EC145 predecessors.

The twin-engine helicopter is one of the quietest in its class and is equipped with state-of-the-art Helionix avionics suite, and upgraded main and tail rotor systems.

With a global fleet of more than 1,400 helicopters of the H145 family, the fleet has accumulated more than five million flight hours.

In New Zealand alone, there are currently 41 H145 family of helicopters deployed for aeromedical, search-and-rescue, utility and business aviation purposes.
