MD Delivers EMS MD-902

By James T. McKenna | June 8, 2007

MD Helicopters has delivered an MD-902 Explorer to Cox Air Care, a major emergency medical services operator in the Ozarks region of southeastern Missouri and northern Arkansas. The helicopter is equipped with a helicopter terrain avoidance and warning (HTAWS) sensors, health and usage monitoring system, and an enhanced visual flight rules cockpit compatible with night-vision systems, according to MD. Additionally, the aircraft has an Outerlink tracking system that enables the aircraft dispatcher to follow the helicopter’s location at all times. Cox Air Care serves the Ozarks from bases in Springfield and Branson, Mo. MD says it has delivered 12 helicopters this year and is on track to deliver 43 by year’s end. That total would be more than the company has delivered in the preceding three years. For related news
