Since 2013 ATE fleet continuously grew by new Bell 429 helicopters manufactured by Bell Helicopter Textron. Bell 429 is a twin-engine helicopter with four-blade main rotor and skid landing gear, certified for Category A. The helicopter meets all the requirements for providing medical service flights. Combined with the large cabin, the medical interior allows for full-body patient access. The ability to carry two patients with both medical attendants at the head creates a more efficient medical environment. The helicopter is equipped with the 88 meters long rescue hoist and the cargo capacity up to 249 kg. The helicopter crew use the maximum hoist cable length usually to evacuate the patient from the difficult terrain in the High Tatras and Slovak paradise.
