EuroTec Vertical Flight Solutions, a helicopter sales and service center, has delivered a brand new custom completed aircraft to Teton County Search and Rescue (TCSAR) based in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

Since it was founded in 1993, Teton County Search and Rescue has never had its own year-round SAR-dedicated helicopter. For many years, the team contracted a helicopter based on need.

Experiencing a recent surge in emergency calls, TCSAR launched the “Mission Critical Campaign,” a fundraiser to purchase a custom completed brand new Airbus H125 Helicopter that will address the growing year-round demand for rescue operations.

“The new H125 helicopter comes at a time when Teton County Search and Rescue continues to see a high volume of rescue calls, within and outside our county,” said TCSAR chief advisor Cody Lockhart.

“Having a rescue-ready helicopter year-round can be the difference between life or death for locals and visitors alike. We are incredibly grateful to our entire community and partners for helping to make this vital rescue tool a reality for Teton County.”

The completion process showcased EuroTec’s unique expertise in helicopter modifications and its close relationships with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), enabling them to offer a comprehensive list of options to enhance the H125’s capabilities.
