[electronic translation] The global health system is under tremendous pressure. At the forefront of the fight against the pandemic was a significant part of the ambulance operators. Airbus is committed to ensuring maximum helicopter availability for emergency departures.
The manufacturer is developing special solutions for isolating the helicopter cabin from the main part of the cabin. Among them are protective screens, which serve as a barrier between the crew and patients and help shield pilots. The company has already introduced this technical solution for light twin-engine helicopters H135 and H145, as well as heavy helicopters AS332 / H225. Similar solutions for models AS365, H155 and H175 will be offered in the coming days.
In addition, Airbus issued a guide on how to properly clean and disinfect helicopters, workplaces, and equipment that could have been contaminated.
Special attention is paid to training. Practical and technical training can now be carried out online. They are adapted to the virtual environment using special software.
