To the best of my knowledge, there are defribrillators on commercial planes. What's so different with the helicopters? # I guess that the defrib. could be carried by the helicopters and crew, used on the ground with the heli. turned off, but not while the heli. is in the air. I remain puzzled.

Can't speak to SAR and heli safety. Here in Wine Country every fire dept (city, county and volunteer) is equipped with and trained in use of defrib devices.Useful when tourists are presented with heart stopping prices of some of our wines.

This could be an issue of the specific make and model fo the device isn't approved. Someone didn't get the one that is approved by the CAA. Well that's my guess.

I would be far more worried about the fact that a rEcent callout the heli had did not come back to base after the 'rescue' because the pilot wouldn't fly in the rain. Yes I did say she would NOT fly in the RAIN.........
baffled from bigger things to worry about
