The most modern helicopter, which is currently used in the civil air rescue, now flies in Bad Berka: Since yesterday, a H 145 launches as the new ” “. The intensive care helicopter is the only one in Thuringia that can be alerted around the clock.
The H 145 represents a generation change in the air rescue. All flight data – for example, to the engines or the attitude – are displayed to the pilot in the state-of-the-art glass cockpit on large-format displays. On the weather radar you can quickly detect changing weather conditions early.
Benefits for the pilot brings the four-axis autopilot, because he can take control functions automatically. The often lifesaving missions of “Christoph Thüringen” become even more secure. Also eye-catching is the shrouded tail rotor, the so-called Fenestron: it is quieter, better protected against damage and offers rescue workers on the ground more security.
“Optimal patient care and safety are our top priority,” emphasizes Jérôme Gehri, Head of DRF Air Rescue Operations. “That is why we have been renewing our fleet for some time. With the H 145, the crews in Bad Berka now have at their disposal a state-of-the-art helicopter, which is particularly suitable for night operations at the station. Except in the cockpit, there are also significant improvements in the cabin: The new interior concept that we have developed offers, among other things, more space and rotating seats for the crew. Both benefit our patients directly. “
For transports of critically ill premature babies in the so-called incubator, the “incubator”, or other medically demanding operations that the station carries out regularly, the H 145 offers even better conditions with more room in the cabin, a greater range and more power.
