MBB/Kawasaki BK 117. Development[edit] The BK117 was a joint development between MBB and Kawasaki based on an agreement made on 25 February 1977.

MBB/Kawasaki BK 117

The agreement would replace two separate projects for twin-engined general purpose helicopters; the Bo 107 by MBB and the KH-7 from Kawasaki.[2] Costs were shared equally, with MBB developing the rotors (based on the rigid rotor system used on MBB's Bo 105), tailboom, flight controls and hydraulic system and Kawasaki developing the landing gear, airframe, main transmission and other minor components. Each company would have its own assembly line producing aircraft for local markets.[3] Each company was to build two prototypes (although Kawasaki only built one) to be completed by 1979; one for flight testing and the others for tie down testing and static testing.

A single BK117 A-3 (c/n 7106) was leased by the Canadian Forces Air Command for a test program and designated as the CH-143. Japanese Production: BK117 A-1 to C-1: c/n 1001-1112 = 111 + P-3/P-5 prototype Peru. Rega. The Rega is a river in north-western Poland, flowing into the Baltic Sea.

Air medical services

The first hospital-based air medical service began in Denver at St. Anthony hospital in 1972. Helicopters are used to transport patients between hospitals and from trauma scenes; fixed-wing aircraft are used for long-distance transports. Advantages[edit] The advantages of medical transport by helicopter may include providing a higher level of care at the scene of trauma and improving access to trauma centers.[1] Helicopter-based emergency medical service (EMS) also provides critical care capabilities during interfacility transport from community hospitals to trauma centers.[2] Indications for air transport[edit] Effective use of helicopter services for trauma depends on the ground responder's ability to determine whether the patient's condition warrants air medical transport.
