Scandinavian Air Ambulance Orders 4 EC145 T2s


Eurocopter, February 13, 2012 - Eurocopter was pleased to announce today that Scandinavian Air Ambulance is acquiring four EC145 T2s for emergency medical transportation services in the north of Finland.

The newly-ordered helicopters are to be flown from three northern bases – Oulu, Kuopio and one Laplan location in Rovaniemi – using the EC145 T2’s performance, lift and range capabilities for emergency air ambulance flights and inter-hospital transportation of patients.

These operations will be performed in the framework of a medical helicopter service contract awarded last week to Scandinavian Air Ambulance by FinnHEMS (Finnish Authority in charge of EMS Service by Helicopters).

The order was signed today at the Heli-Expo 2012 exhibition in Dallas, Texas, with Dick Lindholm, the President of Scandinavian Air Ambulance, Eurocopter’s Vice President of Programs Wolfgang Schoder, Eurocopter EC145 Program Director Manfred Merk, and Jacques Cardaillac, the Sales Director of Northern Europe at Eurocopter.


The Swedish company began operations in 2001 with helicopter bases in Stockholm and Östersund, subsequently expanding across the country using both rotary-wing and fixed-wing aircraft at the service of Swedish health care authorities and county councils. Further growth occurred in December 2010 when it took over helicopter activity in Finland.
