To Be Used For EMS Operations
Representatives with AgustaWestland told ANN Monday the Libyan
Red Crescent has purchased five A119 Koalas helicopters, to be used
for Emergency Medical Service (EMS) operations in the North African
country. To date, the helicopter has secured more than 100 orders
from customers around the world.
"We are delighted by the Libyan Red Crescent decision to buy the
A119 Koala," said Renzo Lunardi, AgustaWestland's Marketing &
Sales Director. "This choice strengthens AgustaWestland's position
in the growing Libyan market and follows the recent sale of ten
A109 Power helicopters."
The Libyan Red Crescent's main activity is providing medical
services through its network of health centers and clinics. The
agency also participates in disaster relief and health education
activities in Libya.
The A119 Koala offers customers high productivity and
performance at a competitive price and EMS customers are taking
advantage of A119's ability to incorporate a single or dual litter
configuration with full patient access for up to two medical
attendants. Such attributes are unique to the A119 Koala in the
single-engine helicopter market.
The manufacturer says the A119 Koala, with its single 1,002shp
Pratt & Whitney PT6B-37A engine, is well suited to the most
demanding hot and high conditions, making it ideal for the Libyan
climate where summer temperatures regularly rise above 104 degrees
Fahrenheit. The A119 Koala is equipped with state-of-the-art
avionics, with integrated liquid crystal displays, designed to
reduce the pilot's workload.
