SCOOP!

OSF Life Flight, run by St Francis Medical Center in the Illinois city of Peoria, is set to move from using Bell 230s.   Currently they fly four of the type, registered N830SF, N840SF, M870SF and N880SF, two registered to OSF Aviation LLC in 2002 and two in 2007.

In recent days, four Eurocopter EC145s have been registered in the same style – ending in Zero Sierra Foxtrot – N140SF (Eurocopter serial 9389), N240SF (9403), N340SF (9411) and N440SF (9457).  HeliHub.com contacted OSF Life Flight and Kevin Terhark confirmed the move but declined to give any further details.  A press release would be forthcoming in a few weeks, he said.  American Eurocopter have not (yet) responded to our email enquiry
