Airbus Helicopters recently exhibited some new EMS equipment for the just-certified EC145T2 light twin. Developed with Mecaer, the new cabin installation is available with an “EMS fixed provisions” option. This provides standardized interfaces for customized hardware, thus reducing the outfitting lead time of an interior for medical operations.
On the smaller EC135, a new “multifunction floor” eliminates the need for separate standard floors and those optimized for EMS missions. The new floor is designed for “excellent weight/performance ratio, robustness and impermeability,” according to Airbus. To be certified this year, the multifunction floor will also be offered for retrofit.
