EC-MNT
This EC 145 was officially ordered from Eurocopter at the American HeliExpo exhibition in Anaheim on 1st of February 2005. It was acquired in order to replace SOS Helikoptern Gotland’s BK 117 (SE-JUL) as an EMS helicopter on the island of Gotland. The EC 145, named SE-JJC, was imported to Sweden in late November 2005 and entered service by replacing the company’s BK 117 as “Medicopter One” in early December the same year. It became the second EC 145 in Scandinavia, after Norsk Luftambulanse’s EC 145 that entered service at the Norwegian Lørenskog base in November

The brand new EC 145 was painted in the European standard EMS colours, green and yellow, and carries titles that states “Ett tryggare Gotland”, which is Swedish for “A safer Gotland”.

The helicopter is certified for Single-Pilot-IFR as well as CAT A operations, and features a night-vision goggle compatible digital glass cockpit. It’s got a larger cabin than the BK 117 and has a slightly improved range.

It is mainly used for inter-hospital transports between the island of Gotland, in the Baltic Sea, and speciality hospitals on the mainland. It flies approx 300 missions a year, including a range of local emergency medical operations on the island and some incubator transports.

SOS Helikoptern Gotland was acquired by the Swedish company Fly Partners i Luleå AB in 2007. The new organization got the name Scandinavian MediCopter in 2008, and became a subsidiary to Scandinavian AirAmbulance (SAA).

In June 2012 MediCopter was awarded the new EMS contract in Gotland. The agreement was sealed in September following the end of an appeal process. The new contract with "Region Gotland" was valid for 5+2 years, starting from 1 April 2014. It was ment to employ a brand new Bell 429, which was aimed to replace SE-JJC upon its arrival.

Denmark
On 1 January Scandinavian MediCopter started a H24 HEMS base in Ringsted, Denmark. SE-JJC came to be used for the January-October interim contract with Region Sjælland and Region Hovedstaden.
In order to cover for JJC in Visby prior to the delivery of the new Bell 429 (SE-JRC), a Norwegian EC145 (LN-OOQ) was leased starting from November 2013.

Sweden again
The 10-month interim contract in Denmark was closed in October 2014, and SE-JJC returned to Sweden. The Bell 429 that had been bound to inherit the Visby EMS operation had been put on hold, and the temporary stand-in aircraft (LN-OOQ) was presently operating in Visby again.

Norway
The helicopter was leased to the Norwegian HEMS operator Norsk Luftambulanse in the spring of 2015. The aircraft was stationed at the Lørenskog base in Oslo until October 2015.

Last period in service with SMC/SAA
SE-JJC was used as a general back-up aircraft in 2016, and it even assisted the HEMS unit in Stockholm for a short period of time. The helicopter was offered for sale and it was eventually exported to Spain in mid September 2016. It was initially put to service as EMS helicopter near Madrid.
