Airmedic and Limosa partners in the electrification of air medical transportation. This powerful synergy between innovation and practical application, promises a revolutionary breakthrough in air medical transport services through cutting-edge eco-friendly technology. This collaboration brings together Limosa' expertise and Airmedic' operational excellence, with the aim of improving the interior design and functionality of LimoMedic, the ambulance version of Limosa eVTOL/eCTOL aircraft to meet the specific needs and recommendations of air ambulance operators.

Sophie Larochelle, Chief Executive Officer of Airmedic, commented: "We are at the beginning of an extraordinary journey in the electric transportation sector. We are particularly sensitive to the ecological footprint of our sector, and with this partnership we would have the opportunity to commit to sustainability, as we believe in the innovation of zero-emission aircraft. "

Hamid Hamidi, President and CEO of Limosa, said: "I am excited about this partnership, as Airmedic brings a wealth of experience in operating air ambulances in Quebec, particularly in the northern regions. They currently operate helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft, while our LimoMedic aircraft combines the best of both worlds. It can take off and land vertically, like a helicopter, and switch to horizontal flight, like a fixed-wing aircraft. It can also take off and land horizontally. In addition, it is exceptionally quiet, making it ideal for use in urban environments. »

Headquartered in Montreal, Limosa is at the forefront of the development of its innovative eVTOL, with a particular focus on the configuration of these state-of-the-art vehicles for air ambulance applications. The company is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with Airmedic, a respected operating company operating a fleet of Airbus helicopters and Pilatus aircraft as air ambulances. This unprecedented partnership represents a powerful synergy between innovation and practical application, promising a revolutionary breakthrough in air ambulance services through cutting-edge eco-friendly technology. Limosa and Airmedic are poised to make a substantial impact in the field of emergency medical rescue applications and contribute to the health and well-being of communities in Quebec and beyond.

"The announcement of the partnership between Airmedic, a company established in Longueuil since 2012, and Limosa, a company that will soon be setting up on our territory, is exactly the kind of announcement we want. What could be more innovative than what will be created by these two partners is directly in line with our vision of the future aerospace innovation zone. Today's announcement proves once again that the decarbonization of aviation will begin in Longueuil with players like AirMédic and Limosa," declared Catherine Fournier, Mayor of Longueuil.

Mélanie Lussier, President of Aéro Montréal, stated: "This partnership between Airmedic and Limosa is a strategic milestone in the evolution of advanced air mobility in Quebec. It is a perfect illustration of the sector's ability to innovate rapidly and sustainably, while pursuing its goal of connecting people. Together, we are taking a significant step towards a future where advanced technologies become essential tools in the service of community well-being."

Mike Mueller, President and CEO of the Aerospace Industries Association of Canada (AIAC) shared his thoughts on the new partnership, noting: "This partnership between Limosa and Airmedic highlights our innovative aerospace industry and its ability to provide solutions for the greater good. Through collaboration, innovation and a continued commitment to sustainability, AIAC members like Limosa are helping to realize a future where cutting-edge technology meets compassionate care, revolutionizing the skies while saving lives."
