AIR METHODS RECEIVES ORDERS FOR THREE ADDITIONAL INTENSIVE CARE MEDICAL HELICOPTER INTERIORS FOR GERMANY

 Ongoing Helicopter Medical Interior Completions Continue to
 Strengthen Company's Marketing and Financial Base
 DENVER, June 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Air Methods Corp. (AMEX: ARF.EC) today announced its receipt of an order for three additional medical interiors to be installed in three Bell 412 helicopters bound for Germany. The helicopters, purchased by HDM Flugservice GmbH, of Nurnberg, Germany, have been retrofitted with the company's newest state-of-the-art medical interior allowing the helicopters to be utilized as airborne intensive care units. A total of six such medical helicopter interiors have been provided to HDM by the company.
 Orders for these three additional helicopters incorporate a new medical interior, custom designed to meet the unique transport and clinical care mission requirements of HDM Flugservice. This design is the result of a one-year refinement process completed by Air Methods in consultation with HDM Flugservice. This specifically designed medical interior operates as a high-technology extension of a hospital intensive care unit capable for use throughout Europe.
 These additional international sales demonstrate the company's expanding commitment to its worldwide marketing program. "The Bell 412 helicopter, equipped with the company's medical interior, is one of the most sophisticated medical intensive care helicopters available worldwide," said W. Terrance Schreier, chairman and chief executive officer. Emergency medical interiors have also been installed in two Gulfstream Commander airplanes which are now operating in Canada. Air Methods has also completed the medical interiors for two learjets with on-board emergency intensive care capabilities for use in Europe and the United States.
 Air Methods Corp. is the largest exclusive provider of state-of- the-art emergency air medical transportation systems and services to hospitals throughout the United States. The company utilities only IFR-certified pilots and aircraft, including 26 helicopters and four airplanes, to perform these services. In addition, Air Methods offers completely integrated airborne medical systems for administering intensive care to patients while flying to a trauma center or a tertiary care facility, either from outlying hospitals or the scene of an accident.
