New Life Flight Eurocopters!

N457JD, the just-delivered 2007 EUROCOPTER DEUTSCHLAND GMBH MBB-BK 117 C-2 photographed at Pearland Regional airport, their south base and fleet maintenance facility.

Even though the airframes are similar, the aircraft systems are vastly improved, prompting Eurocopter to rename it the EC-145 to differentiate it from the BK-117.

N457JD is just one of six newly delivered airframes. Life Flight's pilots have all transitioned to the new glass cockpit aircraft and the fleet is operational, retiring three BK117s and a B0105.

Hermann Hospital's Life Flight program started in 1976 as America's second air medical program, flying the SA319B Alouette.
