Search and Rescue (SAR)demands a helicopter that can search accurately for long periods at very long ranges from its base. It must also be capable of coperating in hostile climatic conditions as well as in harsh environments and be able to find, rescue and commodate at least twenty survivors.


SAR Pick-up area


EH101s large cabin makes it ideally suited to Search and Rescue and medical transportation with room and height for patient treatment en route. Denmark has subjected EH101 to the most rigorous series of evaluations.


However, EH101 has consistently proved itself to be the ideal platform for the Danish requirement to rescue survivors in conditions ranging
from calm in-shore waters to open sea environments.


This is the reason why Denmark has ordered 14 EH101 helicopters (8 SAR and 6 TTT) to be delivered in year 2004 to 2007.
