First Rescue Helicopter Flies on Sustainable Aviation Fuel
First Rescue Helicopter Flies on Sustainable Aviation Fuel
A rescue helicopter flies on sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) for the first time, achieving a new milestone in international aviation. Operated by the German non-profit organization ADAC Luftrettung, the Airbus H145 rescue helicopter had its Arriel 2E engines ceremonially refuelled with biofuel, a type of SAF, at the air-rescue station at Munich's Harlaching Clinic in the presence of the ADAC Foundation's board of directors, as well as the managing directors and top management of ADAC Luftrettung; engine manufacturer, Safran Helicopter Engines; helicopter manufacturer, Airbus Helicopters; and energy company, TotalEnergies. Together, these companies will be a driving force in the decarbonisation of helicopter flight by moving away from fossil fuels.
