Washington MedStar is to equip its fleet of EC 135s and a BK 117 with the Sky Connect Tracker system, which will allow its operations center to monitor the location and status of its fleet anywhere, continuously and under virtually any conditions.

MedStar medical director Christopher Wuerker said, “Sky Connect gives our helicopters both an automated tracking solution and economical satellite voice communications. We believe Sky Connect will increase safety and, at the same time, simplify our operations.”

MedStar is affiliated with Washington Hospital Center in Washington, D.C. and has airlifted more than 20,000 patients.†
