Life Link III Signs for Seventh AW119Kx


AgustaWestland, October 20, 2015 - AgustaWestland announced today that Life Link III of the Northwest United States has signed for a seventh EMS-equipped AW119Kx helicopter that will add to their growing fleet.

The aircraft will be delivered from AgustaWestland’s Philadelphia facility by the end of 2015.

Meeting the high standards set by Life Link III’s operational requirements, introduction of the AW119Kx to the fleet has allowed the organization to expand its coverage area and provide a critical transportation link for injured patients.

The addition of the seventh aircraft demonstrates the work of Life Link III and the AgustaWestland customer support network to collaboratively ensure the highest levels of operational availability and best serve patients in need. The aircraft features a customized EMS (emergency medical service) interior and advanced life-saving equipment in a spacious cabin, improving the capabilities and care available during the narrow window of time known as the “golden hour.”

Integrating the Garmin G1000HTM flight deck system into the proven AW119 platform, certifying the new avionics suite, and delivering the next-generation helicopter to customers in the US, Brazil, Chile, Australia, and other countries over the course of two years was a testament to the success of the AgustaWestland design engineering and production teams and has contributed to the strength of the aircraft across all market segments.

The AW119Kx features a new avionics system that includes a synthetic vision system, moving map, highway in the sky and obstacle/terrain avoidance systems for enhanced situational awareness and safety. Over 250 AW119 helicopters have been ordered to date in more than 30 countries by over 100 customers. The new AW119Kx, like the AW119Ke, is perfectly suited to perform many roles including EMS, VIP/corporate transport, utility, fire-fighting, law enforcement and government duties.

About Life Link III®: Life Link III operates six helicopter bases that include Alexandria, Blaine, Cloquet, Hibbing, and Willmar, Minnesota, and Rice Lake Wisconsin. The company’s helicopter and airplane services provide on-scene emergency response and inter-facility transport for patients requiring critical care. Life Link III’s transportation services are accredited by CAMTS (Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transportation Services), ensuring the highest standards of quality and safety are met. Life Link III is a non-profit consortium and is the air medical transport program for 44 hospitals for the following member organizations: Allina Health, CentraCare Health, Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, Essentia Health, Fairview Health Services, Regions Hospital/HealthPartners®, Hennepin County Medical Center, St. Luke’s, and Sacred Heart Hospital.
