The Air Medical Group (AMGH), the largest independent provider for helicopter emergency medical services (HEMS), signed an agreement to buy four Bell 206L-4s on 9 March 2015. The choppers are to be operated by the Air Evac Lifeteam, with deliveries scheduled for 2016.
Air Evac Lifeteam is headquartered in O’Fallon, Missouri, and provides air medical service to people who generally live at least 70 miles from the closest trauma center. Air Evac Lifeteam currently has 117 bases in 15 states, and operates the world’s largest fleet of more than 130 medically equipped Bell 206 LongRanger helicopters.
Announced in 2013, AMGH signed for 30 Bell helicopters that included 24 Bell 407 and six Bell 206L-4 helicopters. This new deal for four Bell 206L-4s will be added to this existing contract.
