Med-Trans adds another EC135 helicopter

Med-Trans Corporation has ordered its 14th EC135 helicopter from American Eurocopter in the last six months.

American Eurocopter announced the latest order at Heli-Expo 2013 in Las Vegas last week. The order, along with three others placed in December, is part of an agreement with Med-Trans announced in September that included 10 firm orders and six options. With the latest conversion of an option to a firm order Med-Trans has committed to the purchase of 14 of the 16 aircraft.

“Med-Trans rapid growth and its success with the EC135 have led it to accelerate its plans for acquiring the EC135s faster than originally anticipated. We are grateful to Med-Trans leadership for the trust and confidence they have shown in the EC135 and in our company,” said Treg Manning, vice president of Commercial Sales and Marketing for American Eurocopter.

“We continue to increase the number of EC135’s in our fleet as it is a very reliable and proven aircraft, allowing us to offer an airframe to meet and exceed our health care partners expectations,” said Rob Hamilton, chief operating officer of Med-Trans. “The newest order of EC135’s will assure that we keep up with our continued growth at an economical operating cost and ultimately maximize patient care throughout our established service areas.”
