Kopter participated in the digital edition of the AMTC 2020 (Air Medical Transport Conference) together with its parent company Leonardo, showcasing how the SH09 will ideally complement the existing Leonardo Helicopters product range on the EMS (Emergency Medical Services) segment.
When seconds count, the SH09 is the helicopter of choice in the single engine class for a full range of EMS duties.These operations will benefit from its excellent handling qualities and compact footprint — enabling operations from unprepared surfaces and in tight landing zones.
Interior layouts will benefit from the SH09’s removable flat-floor design and large cabin volume with the versatility further enhanced by an outstanding field of view that allows pilots and medical crews to easily monitor the mission.
The high-clearance tail boom and shrouded tail rotor facilitate the movement of ground personnel during loading/unloading stretchers and equipment from the rear clamshell doors, while access for patients and crews also is facilitated by wide sliding doors on both sides of the cabin.
Kopter looks forward to best serve the EMS community together with Leonardo Helicopters.
