Air Methods, January 18, 2016 - United Rotorcraft, an Air Methods Division, announced they delivered the first of two Bell 429 emergency medical helicopters equipped with a next generation EMS interior for the University of North Carolina (UNC).
The first completed aircraft was delivered from United Rotorcraft’s facility in Englewood, Colorado where the aircraft completion took place.

“Redesigning the floor and addressing product improvement reinforces our commitment to our customers by listening to their needs,” stated Frank Graham, senior director of Global Sales & Marketing. “The Bell 429 continues to be a popular twin platform for the helicopter air medical industry, and we are confident the new products will facilitate international opportunities, as well as augment our domestic business.”
