Initially announced at the 2013 Paris Air Show, the contract with Life Link III saw deliveries beginning in early 2014. Three of the six helicopters have been inducted into service. When induction is complete, the six aircraft will serve five bases, in support of a nine-member hospital and health care consortium.
