Bell Helicopter Delivers First 407GXP to Air Methods

The first Bell 407GXP configured for Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS) has been delivered by Bell Helicopter to Air Methods. Deliveries for the massive helicopter order will continue for a decade. Air Methods is the world’s largest air medical provider with more than 400 aircraft, 300-plus bases, and eight maintenance centers. Starting operations with a single Bell 206 helicopter, the air medical company has grown to service 48 states and transports more than 100,000 patients every year.

“As our launch customer for this aircraft, we take great pride in their ongoing trust in Bell Helicopter and providing them with our reliable aircraft,” said Bell Helicopter’s President and CEO Mitch Snyder.

All of the Bell 407GXPs destined for Air Methods will be fitted with United Rotorcraft emergency medical services interiors, which have been designed with air critical care operators in mind. With an articulating loading system for easy patient loading, the adaptable interior can accommodate a single patient or specialty transport. The United Rotorcraft interior also provides integrated medical systems such as medical oxygen, suction, air, storage, electrical power, and approved provisions for securing medical support equipment during all aspects of flight. Anthony Moreland, vice president of North American sales said, “The Bell 407GXP will support their life-saving efforts, but also provide the team with the expanded capabilities, safety and flexibility to serve their patients.”
