MedFlight Takes Safety to New Heights

MedFlight has just introduced a new helicopter, the Euro Copter 130, which will eventually comprise their entire fleet. Pictured above hovering over the Santa Maria replica, the Euro is capable of moving at 130 knots – technology that Christopher Columbus couldn’t have imagined.

This agile, light, single engine chopper can carry a pilot, patient and three medical personnel and has a roomy interior that provides greater access to the patient.

Equipped with all the National Transportation Safety Board’s recommended equipment, the Euro Copter comes complete with night vision capabilities.

Its Traffic Collision Avoidance System, Satellite Real Time Weather and voice, video and flight recorder gives the pilot added safety measures. Whether in the air or on the ground, MedFlight places patient safety first. A representative from MedFlight noted that while the Euro Copter 130 may be capable of 130 knots, their pilots will not be pushing the envelope in terms of speed.

    • As anyone familiar with Larry Hamill’s creative work knows, his images are simply amazing! Check out the linear and figure ground aspects of the chopper over the freeway interchange. Wow. Notice the interplay and balance of elements both ancient and contemporary in the Serpent Mound shot. These are splendid works. Bravo!

  3. Hi Larry Always neat to hear from you and view your work.
    Things are still very much up in the air here we are waiting to have our house rebuilt.The quakes continue over 7000 to date.
    The red chair from the Art Centre in Christchurch is a great icon on your facebook page . There has been huge damage at the Arts Centre and a dont think we will see it reopened in out life time. The centre of the city is still closed down as well.
    Cheers Jan
