This state-of-the-art helicopter represents a significant technological advancement from the older aircrafts in use.

Erin Reese, President & CEO of Mercy Flight Central, emphasized the importance of the upgrade noting “The helicopter is about 30 years newer than our existing aircraft. The older models have become challenging to maintain due to parts availability, so this is a welcome and timely addition.”

Over the years, Mercy Flight Central has reported assisting in over 1,700 patient transports, crediting the organization with saving thousands of lives.
