Honoring Heroes During National EMS Week

Posted by jhadmin

Somewhere, a dedicated team stands ready, waiting to launch a Bell aircraft, reach an emergency site and save a life. As the third week of May 2020 comes to a close, the U.S. celebrates emergency medical services (EMS) personnel and recognizes their unrelenting commitment to caring for patients - even in uncertain environments. Now, more than ever, Bell is proud to support the dedicated teams that provide patients with immediate treatment, transportation and access to medical care. The paramedics and pilots that answer these calls take on a demanding, time-sensitive job that can quite literally make a difference between life or death for injured or ill individuals.

H145M - the flying command post

Posted by jhadmin

The H145M is a true multi-role helicopter. In addition to tactical air transport of six fully equipped special-forces commandos, this light twin-engine helicopter can be deployed for fire support, armed reconnaissance, evacuation of wounded or for hostage rescue. But attention is shifting to an ever greater extent to its use as a flying command post. In close cooperation with industrial partners, Airbus Helicopters is working to further expand the command, control, communications, computer, collaboration and intelligence (C5I) capabilities of the H145M. Helicopters are able to manoeuvre in low-level airspace in a way that fixed-wing aircraft and UAVs simply can’t – all the while collecting and collating data for distribution to ground-based units on the battlefield.
