Bell 407GXIs fit the bill for Global Medical Response
GMR is a ground, specialty and residential fire services and managed medical transportation organisation with more than 38,000 employees. Its already sizeable fleet is about to be boosted by half a dozen Bell 407GXis.
GMR and Bell go hand-in-hand.

Global Medical Response has signed for six Bell 407GXi aircraft. Delivery is expected to be complete by 2023 and the deal includes an option by the US air medical operator to purchase up to nine additional aircraft by the end of 2024 to expand HEMS operations in North America.

“Our fleet of Bell helicopters is a big reason our air medical teams are able to provide care to the world at a moment's notice,” says Rob Hamilton, president of the GMR Alliances Group. “We value our relationship with Bell, and appreciate the reliability, safety and capability these aircraft provide.”

“Global Medical Response is the largest air medical services operator in world, and we are proud it has put its trust in Bell and the Bell 407GXi to support its industry-leading operations,” adds Jay Ortiz, VP of commercial business for the Americas. “We remain committed to GMR's mission and look forward to supporting it now and into the future with the Bell 407GXi.”

GMR is a ground, specialty and residential fire services and managed medical transportation organisation with more than 38,000 employees. It delivers care through multiple operating brands, including Air Evac Lifeteam, Guardian Flight, Med-Trans Corp. and REACH Air Medical Services. These operations transported more than 125,000 patients in 2020. This latest order will add to GMR's current Bell fleet of 214 helicopters.
