AgustaWestland, December 01, 2014 - AgustaWestland announced today that Intermountain Life Flight of Utah has taken delivery of its fifth GrandNew for EMS and SAR missions as they expand service to patients throughout the western United States.

  • Mission equipment includes modern EMS interior in addition to a rescue hoist, wire strike protection, snow skis and NVG compatibility
  • The GrandNew provides the operator with enhanced capabilities and safety for the task

    Completed in AgustaWestland Philadelphia, the GrandNew delivered to Intermountain Life Flight provides increased emergency response capability, including NVG compatibility, to the communities they serve. Allowing the flight team to identify hazards during night EMS operations as well as enhance the crew's ability to find and locate stranded hikers and rescue personnel, night vision goggles improve pilot and crew vision and work when light sources are limited.

    Intermountain Life Flight’s helicopters are based at McKay-Dee Hospital in Ogden, Intermountain Medical Center in Murray, Utah Valley Regional Medical Center in Provo, and Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George, Utah, with a Neonatal Transport team based at Primary Regional Medical Center in Salt Lake City, Utah. Intermountain Life Flight’s specialty care teams are also able to manage LVAD, balloon pump, and high risk obstetrics patients.

    The GrandNew is a modern, top-of-the-range, light twin rotorcraft offering outstanding performance, speed, payload, excellent operational flexibility as well as high safety through advanced navigation and situational awareness technology.

    The GrandNew is the first type-certified light twin (CS/JAR/FAR 27) to enter service with a new EFIS, featuring Synthetic Vision, and is the first helicopter in this class that fully complies with the latest advanced global positioning system-based navigation requirements for all weather operations.

    Orders for more than 330 helicopters from the Grand series have been placed by nearly 210 customers in almost 40 countries worldwide, to perform many tasks including EMS, SAR, electronic newsgathering, VIP/corporate transport, passenger transport, harbour pilot shuttle, maritime patrol and water pollution monitoring.
