Boston MedFlight takes delivery of new EC145

EC145 T2

Eurocopter has delivered a EC145 to Boston MedFlight after the company chose the helicopter to replace their fleet of BK117s.

The new helicopter comes complete with a customised emergency medical services interior installed by Metro Aviation.

“This is one of the best emergency medical service aircraft out there,” said Charles Blathras, chief operations manager and critical care transport specialist for Boston MedFlight. “We looked at every competing aircraft across the board. The reliability and dependability of the EC145 is huge for us.”

“American Eurocopter is proud and honored that Boston MedFlight selected the EC145 to continue their life-saving work and we’re happy to deliver this new helicopter to them ready to go to work flying missions for the people of Massachusetts,” said Treg Manning, vice president of Sales for American Eurocopter.

Boston MedFlight operates from bases in Plymouth, Bedford and North Andover. Blathras said Boston MedFlight anticipates ordering a second EC145 in the near future. Boston MedFlight now has three helicopters, operated by ERA Helicopters, and also flies one fixed-wing aircraft.
