EagleMed adds another AS350 AStar to medical fleet

EagleMed has taken delivery of a new Airbus AS350 AStar helicopter outfitted with the most advanced aviation technology and latest life-saving medical equipment.

This new helicopter becomes the 15th Airbus helicopter in EagleMed’s state-of-the-art critical care air medical transport fleet, which is dedicated to serving rural America.

“As EagleMed expands and continues to modernise our rotor wing fleet, the AS350 is our go-to aircraft for critical care air medical transports.”

Larry Bugg, president of EagleMed, said: “As EagleMed expands and continues to modernise our rotor wing fleet, the AS350 is our go-to aircraft for critical care air medical transports.”

“We are committed to providing safe, world-class patient care and the Airbus AStar has proven itself to be extremely reliable during thousands of air medical flights through the years,” Bugg added.
