The fleet of six helicopters will replace the existing Ambulance Victoria helicopters, the transition being completed in early 2016.
“The internal dimensions of the AW139 makes it the best choice for primary and secondary EMS applications. It’s faster, can travel longer distances without refuelling and utilises state-of-the-art avionics technology,” Australian Helicopters managing director John Boag said.
The six AW139s are being leased from leasing company LCI.
