Bell/Agusta Unveils First AB139 Helicopter For Emergency Medical Service


AgustaWestland, June 14, 2005 - AgustaWestland is pleased to announce that Bell/Agusta Aerospace Company, a joint venture of Bell Helicopter (a Textron company) and AgustaWestland (a Finmeccanica company), has today exhibited at the biennial Paris Air Show, the first AB139 equipped for emergency medical service (EMS).

The aircraft, operated by the Italian company Airgreen, will be used for EMS applications during the 2006 Winter Olympic Games in Torino.

The internal dimensions of the large and unobstructed AB139 cabin make it an ideal choice for primary and secondary EMS applications.

The flat floor and ceiling provide maximum cabin flexibility for easy reconfiguration. An eight cubic meter cabin volume and the height of 1.42 meters allow medical attendants easy access to casualties. Litter layout ranges from two to four in medevac configuration. If cabin access to the large baggage compartment is utilized, litter capacity can be increased to six.

"The AB139's best in class interior design offers EMS operators a whole new dimension of capability and flexibility," , Bell/Agusta's managing director pointed out. "We believe Airgreen is just the first of many operators around the world who will choose this aircraft for their life-saving applications, he added."
