AgustaWestland delivers first of six AW119Kx to Life Link III

AgustaWestland delivered the first of six US-built AW119Kx to Life Link III.

AgustaWestland announced at Heli-Expo 2014 that it has delivered the first of six AW119Kx emergency medical services (EMS) helicopters to Life Link III. The aircraft was built and delivered from AgustaWestland’s Philadelphia assembly line.

“As the most modern lifesaving EMS helicopter in operation today, the AW119Kx will allow Life Link III to complete their missions safely and reliably and improve the level of care delivered to patients in the communities in which they operate,” said Robert Brant, vice president of sales and marketing, North America. “We’re pleased to deliver the first of six aircraft to Life Link III and look forward to our partnership in support of critical care transport.”

“We thank AgustaWestland and the team for meeting our high standards with the AW119Kx and for supporting the lifesaving missions of Life Link III as we modernise our helicopter fleet with an improved medical cabin and expand our coverage area in the Midwest United States with the superior range and speed the A119Kx provides,” said Edward R. Eroe, president and CEO of Life Link III.
