Airbus Helicopters, October 20, 2015 - LONG BEACH, Calif. – Air Medical Group Holdings (AMGH), a major U.S. air medical transport services provider, has contracted with Airbus Helicopters Inc. for the purchase of six H135-series helicopters with options to buy four additional aircraft.

The announcement was made Tuesday in a ceremony at the Airbus Helicopters Inc. booth at the Air Medical Transport Conference under way in Long Beach.

AMGH, based in Lewisville, Texas is the largest independent provider of air medical services in the world operating through seven subsidiaries: Air Evac Lifeteam; Med-Trans Corp; Reach Air Medical Services; EagleMed; Air Med International; Lifeguard Ambulance; and the AirMedCare Network. These subsidiaries transport more than 75,000 critically ill patients each year.

“The H135 continues to be a very safe and reliable aircraft for our patient missions as well as our overall customer’s needs,” said Fred Buttrell, President and CEO of AMGH.
