KoçoÄŸlu Aviation now operates eight AW109 Powers and one Grand. The aircraft will be used to perform EMS missions for the Turkish Ministry of Health from various bases throughout Turkey.

The Ministry of Health contract has established the first EMS helicopter service in Turkey to serve a large part of the community utilising bases in fifteen cities.
