Milestone Aviation Group leases two AW139s to Norsk Luftambulans
Milestone Aviation Group will please two AW139 helicopters to Norsk Luftambulanse (NLA). The aircraft will be used to support emergency medical services (HEMS) in Norway.
In July, Norway’s National Air Ambulance Service awarded NLA with a six-year contract (with a further 2x two-year extension options) to operate all twelve HEMS bases in Norway.
“We are very proud to have supported NLA in its successful bid to provide air ambulance services to the people of Norway.”
“We are very proud to have supported NLA in its successful bid to provide air ambulance services to the people of Norway.” said Robert Dranitzke, executive vice president of Milestone. “The Norwegian government conducted a very comprehensive process to ensure that Norway would be served with a robust and modern HEMS, and its choice is a testament to NLA’s reputation as a trusted and skilled operator. We look forward to continuing to work with NLA as they serve this essential function for the Norwegian people in the years to come.”
Rune Midtgaard, CEO of Norsk Ambulanse added: “Throughout a competitive bidding process, Milestone worked collaboratively to develop the optimal lease structure that matched the requirements of our end-user, the Norwegian government. As we look forward to the critical tasks ahead, we know our partnership with Milestone will continue to benefit the people of Norway, as we bring improved technology and additional capacity to Norway’s HEMS.”
