Here's recent sales info from Eurocopters, from Nov. 2022.

More than 35 new single and twin-engine Airbus helicopters were sold in the US air medical market over
the past 12 months.

Highlights include Atrium Health, which will enhance its MedCenter Air emergency and critical care patient
transport services in the Carolinas with the addition of three new twin-engine H135 helicopters. These air-
craft will join the company’s existing H135 fleet.

Global Medical Response (GMR) has opted to add two new H135 aircraft to their fleet this year, on top of
their existing fleet order from 2021. The operator flies a variety of Airbus products, including the H125,
H130, H135 and H145 family helicopters due to their proven reliability, and continues to grow their fleet in
partnership with Airbus.

These H135 additions come on top of orders for the helicopter by Stat MedEvac and North Memorial
Health, both announced at Heli-Expo earlier this year.

New orders for the five-bladed H145 helicopter were placed by air medical operators located in the North-
east and Midwest United States. For example, Boston MedFlight placed a multi-year order for six H145
helicopters this year. The operator was the first air medical provider in the U.S. to place an order for the
five-bladed H145 as announced at Heli-Expo.

OSF HealthCare will add one H145 to its current fleet of four H145s serving Peoria, Bloomington, Peru,
Galesburg and Rockford, Illinois. Mayo Clinic recently ordered two H145s to complement the one ordered
in 2021.

Another highlight is the purchase of a single-engine H125 by the Daniel R. Sayre Memorial Foundation,
which will be donated to the Hawaii Fire Department to enhance their emergency medical services. This is
the department’s first Airbus product and will also be used for search and rescue missions.

Stanford LifeFlight got their 5 bladed H145 delivered in July. It’s just getting interior work and paint put on right now.

It looks good as far as I can see. Wonder where the old one is going to go. Maybe skylife needs two?

From what I was told it was going to become the Stanford spare.
