Penn State Health Life Lion Critical Care Transport has taken delivery of a new Airbus H155 helicopter.

Developed by Airbus as part of its Dauphin family of helicopters, the H155 is now one of three owned by Penn State Health.

The dual-engine helicopter features a large interior cabin, allowing for more crew members and medical specialists to accompany patients and administer care.

About 30% of Life Lion’s flights are trauma-related and the other 70% are inter-hospital transfer of both patients and organs for transplant. All Life Lion aircraft are equipped with instruments that allow for safe flight in low visibility conditions.

Life Lion serves south-central Pennsylvania, while also transporting patients to hospitals in other states, including New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and Ohio.
