Heli-One, a provider of helicopter maintenance, repair, and overhaul with bases in British Columbia, Norway, and Poland, is highlighting its new helicopter emergency medical service (HEMS) modifications for the Airbus H225. These include an updated medical wall, a stretcher installation, a loud hailer, and an enhanced vision system. 

Among the numerous improvements is the third iteration of the modular medical wall developed by Heli-One. The wall provides more provisions for medical equipment that can be installed, removed, and reconfigured without using tools. Options include single and double oxygen bottles of various sizes, ventilator, and defibrillator. Provisions for stretcher installation and a loud hailer are also provided.

The enhanced vision system, a long-wave infrared camera, is attached to the bottom of the right-side boarding step. The camera can be used for external and forward-looking operations, as well as pointed toward the ground.

Separately, Heli-One will perform return-to-service programs for two H225s for Rotortrade, an international helicopter distributor. The work will take place at Heli-One's facility in Rzeszow, Poland.
