Charlotte, N.C.-based Carolinas Medical Center has ordered three EC135s from American Eurocopter. The helicopters, which will feature a custom equipment package for the hospital’s MedCenter Air unit, are part of a fleet replacement program.
Upgrades will include night vision goggles, TCAS, satellite tracking systems and environmental controls. MedCenter Air covers parts of North and South Carolina from three different bases. Eurocopter plans to deliver the EC135s this fall.
