DRF Luftrettung will use Safran Helicopter Engines’ premium health monitoring service through Airbus' Helionix system, Safran announced on 5 March.

DRF Luftrettung will use the service in its H145 helicopter. Safran's health monitoring service will work with data downloaded through the Airbus H145 Helionix and H225 M-ARMS data collection systems.

The service for helicopter engines allows customers to improve engine life through the early detection of low signals, prognosis analysis and maintenance plan customisation.

Health monitoring is available at an ‘essential' level, where the customer is responsible for data collection and analysis, and a ‘premium' level where maintenance recommendations by Safran experts are customised to the customer's fleet, missions and usage rates.

Compatibility with Airbus data collection systems will be gradually rolled out in 2019. New features will also be released throughout the year.

DRF Luftrettung operates helicopters at 29 helicopter emergency medical service bases in Germany and at two bases in Austria for emergency rescue and for the transport of intensive care patients between clinics, at ten locations in 24-hour operation.
