Airbus Helicopters delivers units for Swiss Air Rescue

Airbus Helicopters has delivered the first two of a total of six H145 helicopters to Swiss Air Rescue at helicopter base the Rega Centre.

These will replace Rega’s existing fleet of EC145 helicopters, which will be phased out by mid-2019. The first H145 helicopter is expected to be deployed at the Bern base in October.

Ernst Kohler, CEO of Rega, said, “Over a period of 15 years, the six EC145s have proven themselves to be reliable and versatile rescue helicopters, providing airborne medical assistance to around 60,000 patients to date. Thanks in part to these positive experiences, Rega is now opting for the H145, the successor to the EC145.

“The H145 represents a continuation of our success story and ensures that we can continue to provide our patients with reliable and professional help in the years to come.”

Wolfgang Schoder, CEO of Airbus Helicopters Deutschland, added, “We are proud that such an internationally renowned operator as Rega has placed its trust in our H145 family over such a long period of time.”
