Ready For Medical Emergencies - The AW169

The modern Leonardo AW169 HEMS helicopter responds to the need to transform the helicopter from a simple means of transporting patients from the accident site to the hospital, into a real flying hospital for patient stabilization before reaching the hospital for final intervention.

The modern Leonardo AW169 HEMS helicopter responds to the need to transform the helicopter from a simple means of transporting patients from the accident site to the hospital, or between hospitals, into a real flying hospital for patient stabilization before reaching the hospital for final intervention.

When transporting patients in life-threatening situations, it is essential to have all the necessary equipment to provide the very best chance for the patient to survive. 

Every minute matters, so with our AW169 HEMS configurations, we offer a fast cruise speed, a wide cabin that allows 360° access to the patient, besides the necessary room for medical equipment and stability in flight to prevent the patient’s condition from deteriorating.

The AW169 performs well in every weather condition with near 360-degree visibility, essential for EMS operators who need to reach also tight, small sites to evacuate casualties.

Taking in consideration mission requirements, the AW169 EMS is designed and built with large sliding doors to facilitate the entry of one or two stretchers. This solution offers more space for lighter-weight equipment and for its easier installation. 

Our goals are the continuous refinement of helicopters and their equipment, services and capabilities, listening to the crews who operate them daily, with the aim to increase the aircraft capacity, ergonomics and safety for all medical crews and patients.
