BUCHAREST, Romania, 26 April 2012. The Romanian Ministry of Health has ordered two additional Eurocopter EC135 helicopters as part of a framework contract signed last year covering a total six of the twin-engine rotorcraft.

This new agreement will lead to deliveries of the latest two EC135s during 2012, and serves as a follow-on to an initial helicopter ordered and delivered last year in the framework contract with the Eurocopter Romania affiliate. Romania’s rotorcraft are outfitted with an emergency medical services kit provided by Austria’s Air Ambulance Technology. The EC135 helicopter Air Ambulance variant is capable of flying 395 miles and can carry a crew of two personnel, not including the pilot, along with two patients.

The Romanian Ministry of Health’s EC135 inventory will be used for emergency medical missions and assistance of the general population. These acquisitions are part of a wide-scale program launched by the government to develop its medical evacuation and support capabilities, building on the services provided by two previously-ordered EC135s that are owned by Ministry of Health, along with two EC135s of the Ministry of Administration and Interior (MAI). All four helicopters are operated by the MAI’s General Inspectorate of Aviation.
