Leonardo announced at the Air Medical Transport Conference in Phoenix, Arizona that EMS provider Life Link III has logged over 15,000 flight hours and transported over 8,000 patients with their fleet of 10 Leonardo AW119Kx helicopters.
Operating eight helicopter bases in Minnesota and Wisconsin, Life Link III is the largest hospital-based non-profit consortium program in the United States with ten member-owners. Life Link III’s AW119Kxs function as flying Intensive Care Units (ICUs) providing emergency pre-hospital care for patients often in critical condition.
The AW119Kx has met high standards of operational requirements and availability since the first aircraft was delivered to Life Link III in early 2014. Configuration includes advanced glass cockpit and night vision goggle (NVG) capabilities.
Leonardo continues to grow their presence in the North American EMS helicopter market which now totals more than 110 across a fleet of AW119s, AW109s, and AW139s.
