American Eurocopter announced that Miami Valley Hospital of Dayton, Ohio, has purchased a new AS365 N3+ for its CareFlight program.

“Miami Valley Hospital has relied on American Eurocopter exclusively for our Air Medical Transport needs for nearly 30 years,” said Candy Skidmore, director of access and transfer care for CareFlight Air and Mobile Services. “We are very excited about adding the AS365 N3+ to our fleet of Dauphins. We currently have N3 aircraft and firmly believe the addition of 4-Axis Digital Autopilot, performance improvements, and glass cockpit will reduce pilot workload.”

CareFlight’s distinctive Dauphin helicopters are equipped as mobile ICUs with the latest in medical technology and most advanced communication equipment available.

“CareFlight has been a staunch supporter of American Eurocopter and the Dauphin series in particular,” said American Eurocopter vice president of commercial sales and marketing, Treg Manning. “We are most proud of the fact that they did their due diligence and chose the latest generation of the 365 to advance Miami Valley Hospital’s patient delivery and care capability.”
