This Eurocopter EC135 has joined the fleet of the EastCare air medical program, which Pitt County Memorial Hospital runs.

Pitt County Memorial Hospital has taken delivery of a new Eurocopter EC135 for its EastCare air medical service in North Carolina. Based at Rocky Mount-Wilson Regional Airport (RWI), the EC135 is part of a fleet upgrade that also involves Eurocopter delivering two EC145s this spring—scheduled for April and May 2010. The EC145s will be stationed at Pitt County Memorial’s heliport (NC91) in Greenville, N.C. The group of Eurocopter variants is set to replace a fleet of three BK-117s operated through a lease with Air Methods. (From March 2010 Rotorcrat Report)
