The GrandNew light twin helicopter expands in the Republic of Korea with the order of three units by HeliKorea for Emergency Medical Service.
The order is a testament to the success of the type as the benchmark light twin EMS helicopter on the market.
The first two helicopters will be delivered at the end of 2017 while the third will be added to the fleet in 2018. These aircraft will join two AW169s ordered by HeliKorea in 2016 for EMS missions. With these deliveries, the entirety of the EMS fleet in South Korea will consist of Leonardo helicopters as of January 2018.
