The Airbus Helicopters H145 has been selected by Canada's STARS air ambulance to replace its aging aircraft fleet.

According to Airbus, these will be the first H145 helicopters in helicopter emergency medical service (HEMS) configuration for the Canadian market. The first tranche of H145s will be delivered in 2019 and will be based out of STARS’ Calgary, Alberta base.

The twin-engine H145’s large cabin with HEMS interior will support STARS’ professionals in providing a safe, rapid, specialised emergency medical transport for critically ill and injured patients.

The H145 is Transport Canada Civil Aviation certified and is easily customised for intensive care transport, offering easy and safe loading/unloading of patients through wide side sliding doors and large rear clamshell doors. The H145’s extremely low external sound levels allow neighbourhood-friendly operations around hospitals and in urban areas.
