Air Methods inks substantial HCare agreement
Air Methods is the largest civil operator of Airbus helicopters globally and a leading air medical service provider, delivering lifesaving care to more than 70,000 people a year. No civil operator has more HCare coverage.
Air Methods aircraft covered by Airbus support and services now number 111.

Air Methods Corporation has signed another HCare support contract with Airbus Helicopters, this time to cover its fleet of EC135 helicopters, the largest HCare contract signed with any civil customer to date. The order expands the number of Air Methods aircraft covered by Airbus support and services to 111, making Air Methods the largest HCare-covered single-operator civil helicopter fleet in the world.

“Safety and being ready and available are the keys to the success of our critical care mission,” says Leo Morrissette, Air Methods EVP operations. “To support our high demand operation, we value strong working partnerships with industry OEMs, and this contract formalises and optimises the process between Air Methods and Airbus in order to focus on delivery, results and a path to continuous improvement.”

With nearly 40 years of air medical experience, it is a preferred partner for hospitals and one of the largest providers of air medical services.

“Our team is proud of our longstanding success with Air Methods and the opportunity to provide the overall best experience in support and cost control,” remarks Anthony Baker, VP of support and services for Airbus Helicopters North America. “With comprehensive HCare coverage, our customers can enjoy even greater peace of mind while helping meet long-term support and financial goals, so they can focus their attention where it needs to be; on their critical life-saving missions.”
