Arctic Directory: Era announces launch of SAR service

Era Helicopters said June 30 that it had launched a Search and Rescue and Emergency Medical Services operation from its base located in Fourchon, La. Together, Era and Priority 1 Air Rescue will offer FAA-approved, full-service SAR/EMS capability and turnkey solutions to offshore oil and gas companies located in the Gulf of Mexico for a 24-hour SAR and advanced life support paramedic resource. “Anadarko will be our launch customer highlighting the importance of SAR/EMS capability in the Gulf of Mexico, and the foresight of Anadarko to participate in this undertaking. We believe our efforts will support our customers and improve the safety of the industries we support. Era Helicopters and P1PAR will offer the highest level of expertise of any SAR provider in the Gulf of Mexico,” said Neill Osborne, Era president. Additional offshore industry companies can participate in this program through a subscription service offered by Era Helicopters.

The P1AR crews, including hoist system operators, rescue swimmers, and flight paramedics, will supplement Era’s state-of-the-art SAR equipped AW139 helicopter dedicated to the new program. The AW139 has flight performance capabilities to execute deepwater maritime SAR/EMS operations at distances up to 200 nautical miles offshore. For more information visit www.erahelicopters.com.
