the most challenging missions around the globe.
This is EHI’s second AB139 and third B412 to enter the

15-passenger medium twin-engine helicopter with advanced avionics
and performance capabilities. The aircraft’s exceptional
power to weight ratio and high-speed capability make the aircraft
ideally suited for EHI’s offshore, EMS, search and rescue and
EHI is known throughout the world for its impeccable safety,

the most modern aircraft on the market and will set new standards
in the helicopter industry,” said Evergreen International
Aviation Chairman and Founder Delford Smith.
