Airbus has challenged Travis County’s decision to go with three of AgustaWestland’s AW169 helicopters to replace their EMS fleet. Airbus argues that the winning bid for the $34 million contract was a poor decision as it was more expensive than their offer. They also argue that the filtration systems for the engines and the cabin setup for EMS use are not yet certified with the FAA. Travis County is standing by its decision though, reports My States Man.
