H135 is Preferred for Emergency Medical Services 19 September, 2019


Romanian Ministry of Interior orders three Airbus H135s for air medical services and related support. The contract includes providing services for air medical services and search and rescue (SAR) missions in the country. A four-year framework agreement for the contract was signed at the end of July 2019 that foresees the procurement of up to ten H135s, the company said in a statement Thursday.

“Airbus has been an active player in Romania for almost 50 years and we are proud that the Ministry of Interior has selected the H135 for such critical missions. As a market leader with more than 600 helicopters in service for air medical service missions worldwide, I have no doubt that it will be a valuable life-saving asset to the country,” said Georges Durdilly, Head of Airbus Helicopters in Romania.

Mainly used for helicopter emergency medical services, the chopper is capable of carrying out missions such as special operations, transport of troops and freight, naval inspection, SAR and medical evacuation. It is capable of flight under instrument flight rules (IFR) and is outfitted with a digital automatic flight control system (AFCS).
