Brief "Expo". Boston MedFlight orders three H-145 helicopters

To upgrade hospital consortium’s air medical transport fleet

Boston MedFlight, a non-profit organization that provides critical care air medical transport for Boston-area and other Eastern Massachusetts hospitals, has ordered three new H-145 helicopters as part of a comprehensive plan to upgrade its fleet with more modern and more capable aircraft.

The first two units will be placed into service this spring, with the third arriving in the fall. The new aircraft will replace its H-145 predecessors, two EC-145s, and a BK-117. The organization has flown Airbus helicopters since the consortium’s founding in 1985.

The non-profit  serves a consortium of seven Boston-area medical centers and transports more than 4,000 critically ill and injured patients each year, including approximately 1,800 by air.
