A while back, we posted a photo of our backup aircraft, the EC135. You probably noticed that it has skids, compared to our Dauphin helicopters which have wheels. Our pilots have to land the EC135 helicopter on a dolly in order to tow it in and out of the hangar for incliment weather.

Thank you, Trenton Fire Department - OH!

We would like to thank Premier Health CareFlight Air and Mobile Services for stopping by this evening and putting on a landing zone and safety training for our Paramedic Refresher class.
