Leonardo is back at AMTC, the Association of Aeromedical Services (AAMS) annual trade fair focused on the latest technologies and the most innovative products and services for the medical transportation industry. This year, the exhibition, called AMTC2022 Elevated, will take place October 24-26 on the Florida Gulf Coast in Tampa.
Participants are emergency medical and critical care professionals from air and ground medical transportation services, including physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, pilots, Part 135 operators, and aircraft manufacturers.
Leonardo’s attendance at AMTC, in addition to providing an opportunity to gather with other community players to share their thoughts and perspectives on the many challenges facing emergency medical transport providers, along with a static display of AW169 Features an EMS mockup of the AW609. In an Emergency Medical Services (EMS) configuration.
In the North American EMS market, Leonardo owns over 100 helicopters spanning AW119, AW109, AW169 and AW139, and there are over 650 Leonardo search and rescue and emergency medical service helicopters worldwide, operating in over 50 countries. saves lives every day. .
At the Leonardo booth, an EMS mockup of the AW609 will be on display. The AW609 Medical Equipped Cabin can accommodate up to 5 medical staff and her 1 patient on a stretcher. A smooth, low-vibration flight profile and a pressurized cabin capable of sea level pressurization enable higher levels of life-saving care when needed.
Flying twice as fast as conventional helicopters, the AW609 doubles your reach during the all-important “golden hour.” During this time period, prompt medical and surgical intervention is most likely to prevent death, and its long range can prevent direct patient or patient death. Interhospital organ transplantation greatly reduces the number of loading and unloading cycles.
Leonardo freezes AW169 in EMS configuration operated by Life Link III. Life Link III, his EMS operator in Minnesota and Wisconsin, ensures critical care onboard and throughout the United States through a mixed fleet of 15 helicopters spanning AW169, AW119Kx, AW119 IFR and AW109 Trekker. We transport patients in the Western Midwest.

The AW169 offers best-in-class cabin volume and features a flexible internal layout designed to allow 360° patient access essential for critical care. The AW169 can transport two patients and deliver them to medical personnel, in addition to emergency medical equipment. Wide doors facilitate access to the cabin, and the separate luggage compartment is large enough to accommodate additional equipment and stretchers.
The aircraft also features unparalleled PC1-CAT.A performance and a unique APU (Auxiliary Power Unit) mode that allows key cabin systems to remain ‘powered on’ even when the rotors are stationary. I can. Thanks to recent aerodynamic improvements, the release of new Phase 7 and 8 core avionics software, and performance enhancement packages introduced to the aircraft from late 2021, the AW169 is a helicopter model with the best power-to-weight ratio in its class.
Additionally, the AW169 offers operators all three undercarriage options, retractable or fixed landing gear and skids. The AW169 is a standout in the EMS market and will be a standout at AMTC.
