Over a period of 15 years, the six EC145s have provided airborne medical assistance to around 60,000 patients to date.

The H145 represents a continuation of our success story and ensures that we can continue to provide our patients with reliable and professional help in the years to come, said Ernst Kohler, CEO of Rega.

The agile H145 is particularly well suited for special intensive care transports thanks to its spacious cabin and a maximum take-off weight of 3.7 tons. The helicopters are equipped with the Helionix digital avionics suite, providing user-friendly flight data management and a high-performance 4-axis autopilot, which considerably reduces pilot workload during missions. Its particularly low acoustic footprint makes the H145 one of the quietest helicopters in its class.
