In early 2019, STAR Flight took delivery of three Leonardo AW 169 helicopters. STAR Flight was the first Helicopter EMS/SAR agency in the United States to operate the AW169. Designed around the patient’s needs, the AW169 is ideally suited to life-saving missions and rescue services. Thanks to its advanced technologies and flexibility, the AW169 ensures a rapid emergency response with a cruise speed of 165mph. Developed in accordance with the latest certification standards and regulations, the AW169 ensures the highest level of safety. The glass cockpit combines latest-generation avionics systems with exceptional external visibility, maximizing situational awareness and minimizing pilot workload during day and night operations, including Single Pilot IFR capabilities. The Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) ‘mode’ allows the continued operation of the environmental control system, radios and medical devices when the rotors are stopped. The largest cabin in its class features space for a full suite of the most advanced life-support equipment and full access to the patient. Wide sliding doors allow easy loading/unloading of the patient, the spacious cabin ensures entire access to the patient.
