Bucher Leichtbau's Emergency Medical System H135 AC67 Flex Receives EASA Approval
The Bucher Group, a specialist in emergency medical systems, announces that its new rescue equipment, H135 AC67 flex, is now EASA-certified on all variants of the H135 helicopter. Further developments by Bucher's engineers of the AC67 equipment, which has been in use successfully for many years, now results in the new AC67 flex.
Until recently, only dedicated HEMS operators were able to benefit from the high-quality Bucher HEMS kits. Now, customers such as police, transport companies or military operators will have the opportunity to convert their H135 helicopter into a fully functional rescue helicopter in approximately 30 minutes by using the AC67 flex kit. Mission profiles are now available for almost every HEMS application, from primary and secondary to disaster missions with dual stretcher.
The short installation time of about 30 minutes was made possible by the proven quick-release system from Bucher Leichtbau. The HEMS kit can be installed and removed quickly and safely without tools and with only a few hand movements, making the helicopter always available for further use.
Beat Burlet, CEO of the Bucher Group, comments on the certification: "More and more helicopter operators want to be able to use their helicopters around the clock. With our equipment, we address exactly this need and make it possible to equip the helicopter for HEMS operations within minutes through the fast and flexible installation and removal system. We are very pleased that we have already won customers for this new product. With the successful approval of our AC67 flex equipment, we are now able to deliver the first kits this year."
