Germanys DRF Christoph 53 in Mannheim has begun operations with a five-blade H145 D3 and was immediately in action with its first mission of a double assignment. Duty pilot, Markus Becker said “The advantages of the machine are clear thanks to the fifth rotor blade, the H145 is even quieter in the air, which means significantly less vibration for the interior a brilliant difference!"

Patients and crew also benefit from the significantly higher payload of the new model. For example, more fuel can be absorbed, which means that longer distances are possible in operations and emergencies.  

The first H145 D3 was converted for station service at the DRF Luftrettung base has continued to add more of the type to its fleet with Mannheim its 14th station to receive a machine of this type.
