Among its missions, approximately 45.8% are carried out by a four-strong helicopter fleet, based at Hanscom Field, Plymouth Municipal Airport, Lawrence Municipal Airport, and Mansfield. In March 2018, the EMS transport provider took delivery of a new H145, the first of three that are set to join the fleet. The need is great, as Boston MedFlight transports some 4,000 critical care patients a year, or approximately 1,842 missions yearly.

In March 2018, the EMS transport provider took delivery of a new H145, the first of three that are set to join the fleet.

The helicopters carry a three-person crew on average – the pilot, a critical care transport nurse and a paramedic – with space for up to two patients, and a seat for a family member if needed. Fully equipped for ICU care onboard, the helicopters make up a fast and reliable form of transportation in nearly any weather condition. “We have instrument approaches to all of our hospital helipads in Boston and this is a more capable aircraft for that mission,” says Lynda Colarossi, Chief Pilot Boston MedFlight, speaking of the new H145.

Here, Colarossi and pilot Keith Lanteigne speak in more detail about the newest member of their Boston fleet, the H145.
