Brad Ballesteros/Special to West Hawaii Today By Bret Yager [email protected] West Hawaii patients needing urgent medical care at hospitals on Oahu and Maui are flying there in a faster, safer and more versatile helicopter. The Eurocopter EC135 unveiled and blessed at Kona Community Hospital on Tuesday can cruise at 160 miles per hour and is capable of night flying. The helicopter can carry heavier loads and is equipped with night vision and navigational aids that were lacking in a previous machine used by Life Flight Hawaii. The twin engine machine shaves precious time off a transfer when every moment counts. The chopper replaces a single-engine A-Star craft.
