Heli-Expo – Dartmouth-Hitchcock Advanced Response Team orders Airbus H135


DHART has ordered a H135 helicopter. It will be delivered in the fourth quarter of 2016.

The aircraft will be used to replace an older EC135, which will be used as a backup.

Metro Aviation operates and provides aviation services for DHART.

“We chose the H135-series because it fits our mission profile for outstanding performance in our operating environment. Northern New England consists of challenging mountain terrain and coastal communities. We needed a helicopter that offers maximum maneuverability and safety in the areas we service, while providing the high- and low-altitude performance margins needed to accomplish our mission of saving lives.” said Kyle Madigan, Program Director, DHART

DHART purchased its first EC135 from Airbus Helicopters over 17 years ago.
