BACKGROUND
In early-1993 Heliflyg AB was appointed winner of a new attractive EMS helicopter contract in Stockholm County, which was a result of a long evaluation period. The County Council had decided that they wanted two helicopters for the operation, including one BK 117. The decision to use the BK 117 was based on trials that were conducted in 1992, where one helicopter type a month was evaluated for a total of six months. Heliflyg used a leased BK 117 (SE-JBK) for the trials, but that helicopter had to be returned to Canada in 1993.

A new leasing machine (D-HIMT) was brought in by Eurocopter Deutschland GmbH to fill the need for BK 117s.

The primary EMS helicopter for Stockholm, SE-JBC, was delivered in March of 1993. The helicopter soon entered service as EMS helicopter A998 together with D-HIMT at the newly established base in Gustavsberg, moments east of Stockholm.

SE-JBG comes to Sweden
A third leasing machine (SE-JBG) arrived in July of 1993, replacing D-HIMT. The two white BK 117s (JBC and JBG) worked together from mid-1993 to mid-1994. JBC was marked with number "1" and JBG got number "2". SE-JBG was replaced by a company owned Bell 412 (SE-JBI) in April 1994. The sister, SE-JBC, remained in service in Stockholm until 1999.
