Summit Air Ambulance Takes Delivery of Its First AW119Kx


AgustaWestland, October 24, 2014 - AgustaWestland announced that it has delivered to Summit Air Ambulance of Idaho their first AW119Kx, an EMS equipped helicopter that will support their operations in the Northwest United States.

The delivery of a second AW119Kx will soon follow, and both helicopters will join several AW109 Power helicopters already in service with Summit, in addition to a fleet of fixed-wing aircraft.

The AgustaWestland engineering and production teams achieved tremendous success by 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, and Australia over the course of two years. The new avionics system includes a synthetic vision system, moving map, highway in the sky and obstacle/terrain avoidance systems for enhanced situational awareness and safety.

The achievements by AgustaWestland and timely delivery to Summit will ensure operation of the most modern and efficient EMS helicopter fleet in service today.

Nearly 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.

Summit Air Ambulance is a proven regional leader in working with government agencies, hospitals and healthcare systems to develop solutions specific to local needs. The company is firmly committed to helping from a network of coordinated teams linking a region’s tertiary care centers, community hospitals, critical access hospitals and first responders. Summit’s home office, communications center, and maintenance facility are located in Idaho, and the company currently operates fixed-wing and/or helicopter bases in Bozeman, Montana; Helena, Montana; Elko, Nevada; and Reno, Nevada.
