Mainly used for helicopter emergency medical services, the chopper is capable of carrying out missions such as special operations, transport of troops and freight, naval inspection, SAR and medical evacuation. It is capable of flight under instrument flight rules (IFR) and is outfitted with a digital automatic flight control system (AFCS).
