Air Methods has signed a new HCare support contract with Airbus Helicopters, this time to cover its fleet of EC135 helicopters .

The contract, which is the largest HCare deal that Airbus has signed with any civil customer to date,  expands the number of Air Methods aircraft covered by Airbus support and services to 111. This makes Methods the largest HCare-covered single-operator civil helicopter fleet in the world.

“Safety and being ready and available are the keys to the success of our critical care mission,” said Leo Morrissette, EVP Operations. “To support our high demand operation, we value strong working partnerships with industry OEM’s and this contract formalizes and optimizes the process between Air Methods and Airbus in order to focus on delivery, results, and a path to continuous improvement.”

Air Methods is the largest civil operator of Airbus helicopters worldwide and the leading air medical service provider, delivering lifesaving care to more than 70,000 people annually.

“Our team is proud of our longstanding success with Air Methods and the opportunity to provide the overall best experience in support and cost control,” said Anthony Baker, vice president of support and services for Airbus Helicopters North America. “With comprehensive HCare coverage, our customers can enjoy even greater peace of mind while helping meet long-term support and financial goals, so they can focus their attention where it needs to be – on their critical life-saving missions.”

HCare is Airbus’ comprehensive support and service package that allows customers to choose a plan to meet their needs, from maintenance and technical support to the supply of spare parts, tools, consumables and even flight ops and training.
