Louis Bartolotta, executive vice president of Marketing and Sales, North America, “The GrandNew is an outstanding
helicopter, perfectly suited to be operated by such an exceptional customer.

their service envelope, providing increased emergency response capability to
the communities that they serve. ”

the first US
based operator.  We are looking forward
to introducing the aircraft in St. George and ultimately as a replacement for
the entire fleet,” said Jerry Morrison, executive director, Intermountain
Life Flight.
