STARS air ambulance showed off its two new helicopters this past Thursday in Calgary, which should be ferrying critical patients around Alberta by the summer.
After an extensive review process, the Airbus H145 was selected as the helicopter to help STARS continue to provide world-class critical car to patients in need for generations to come.
The two Airbus H145’s are the first of a new fleet of nine helicopters the organization hopes to acquire, with $91 million of an estimated $117 million needed for the fleet already raised. Each new helicopter in the fleet costs $13 million. Building a new, single model fleet of helicopters is STARS’ best choice for safety, operations and cost control.
