AgustaWestland to Send EMS AW139s to Australian Helicopters
Australian Helicopters has secured a contract with AgustaWestland for six AW139 intermediate twin-engine helicopters that will be operated for Ambulance Victoria under a 10-year agreement to perform Emergency Medical Service (EMS) missions. The aircraft, which are expected to enter service in January 2016, will be based at Essendon, Bendigo, Latrobe Valley and Warrnambool airports. The new fleet will replace Ambulance Victoria’s present five helicopters and includes a dedicated back-up aircraft to maintain services when heavy aircraft maintenance is required.
