At HeliTech 2017 in London, Helikopter Air Transport (HeliAir) presented a world first “Cocoon” – a self-supporting interior trim for the aviation world. “There has also been great interest in our development at other aviation trade fairs in Europe and the United States,” reports Marco Trefanitz, Managing Director of HeliAir. “First of all, we would like to thank our Technical Director Wolfgang Burger, who unfortunately passed away much too soon. He was the mastermind and driving force behind this great development.” In the past few months, a distribution agreement has been successfully negotiated with Airbus Helicopters, which was recently signed at the Heli-Expo in Anaheim.
Cocoon is therefore an integral part of the option list of the renowned helicopter manufacturer. The innovative design allows new medical devices to be easily integrated into the helicopter. The elimination of the necessary adaptations for new medical device mounts considerably reduces the cost and effort and optimizes the availability of the helicopters.
In order to be listed on the Airbus Helicopters option list, HeliAir had to undergo an audit process. In addition to production, this also includes parameters such as delivery capacity, finishing or assembly in a helicopter. “The signed agreement underlines the good international reputation that HeliAir has,” says Trefanitz. “However, for us it is also an order to continue to offer high quality standards in all areas.”
With the company Helikopter Air Transport (HeliAir), the ÖAMTC air ambulance at the Innsbruck and Wiener Neustadt locations has its own maintenance company, which is approved under the European Aviation Act and has an excellent international reputation. Helicopters and engines from all over Europe are serviced in Innsbruck and Wiener Neustadt. HeliAir also has a design and production company that develops mission equipment for helicopters and also produces all the registration documents required for EASA
