“Completing the FAA approval was key in driving future opportunities as a sole source provider of the EC130 T2 complete Emergency Medical Services (EMS) kit, avionics and other upgrades, all of which are FAA certified,” said Frank Graham, senior director of global sales and marketing at United Rotorcraft.

“The Airbus EC130 T2 will be a popular platform for the helicopter air ambulance industry and we are confident we have made a highly capable interior available to operators around the world.”

United Rotorcraft has begun manufacturing and completion work on a 10 aircraft order for Airbus Helicopters. These aircraft will be delivered to Air Methods to support their EMS fleet. United Rotorcraft also received a follow on order by Wysong Enterprise in Blountville, Tennessee for an EMS interior kit to be installed in a third party aircraft.
