UH72 - EMS Package

UH72 on HeliCarrier Dolly

Emergency Medical Services experience bigger challenges when it comes to their helicopter handling. They face today's budget restrictions in regards to human resource availability along with the tension to perform in extremely short time envelopes. They carry helicopters that are heavily loaded with equipment and fuel; and often need to do so in the most unfriendly environments such as pitch darkness, slippery wet snow or clear ice.

In such conditions solutions must be implemented to reduce risks of unwelcome flight delays, equipment damage and worst of all, personnel injury. It only makes sense that helicopter handling be so simple and easy that it becomes completely transparent to the crew, the mechanics and the management as they all have other priorities to attend to for optimal patient care.

Listening to the concerns and ideas coming from EMS organisations we have developed a number of features. Together, they create an unsurpassed solution for their specific needs.

We present you our EMS or also called UH72 Package:
