1.The original

The company Heli Austria or Heli Tirol called from St. Johann im Pongau, was founded in 1982. At that time the company of Johann Knaus under the name Ritter Trade & Aviation Consulting was founded. They then led mainly by passenger flights, but also transport flights.

Under the name Knaus Helicopter the entry into the air ambulance took place in the year 2000.
Back then chartered Knaus Helicopter BK 117 a of the German Air Rescue, shortly DRF. These BK 117 was stationed at the heliport in St.Johann. Two years later opened its Knaus Heliport in Karres from where from this time Martin 2 launched on air rescue operations.

Today the air rescue sites are the State assumed drawee company name of Roy Knaus. In Salzburg there is the Martin Flugrettung and the Heli-Austria, in Tirol, Heli-Tirol.

Some air ambulance locations of Heli-Austria had soon be closed after its opening again. This had mostly political backgrounds. So Martin 3 was closed at the heliport Ebensee in Salzkammergut after only two years. Martin 7 was stationed initially in Obertauern. Again, the base was closed again after a short time. Today Martin is 7 stationed in Mayrhofen. This site also has been closed for political reasons in the short term and is active again.

Today the Heli-Austria is represented at seven locations in Salzburg and Tyrol.
The best known is probably Martin 1, which Medicopter 117 (helicopter the eponymous TV series) is stationed at the original base of known. This famous building had in 2014 an ultramodern Hangar soft which now both flight and maintenance operations of Heli-Austria hosts. The Heliport in Hochgurgl, near the toll station Timmelsjoch is often used by aircraft manufacturers for testing purposes. This is what happened in 2014 as an Airbus Helicopters there conducted test flights of EC135P3 and EC145T2.

Heli-Austria used the only Austrian operator mostly helicopters of the type MD 902 Explorer. This helicopter type, which is distinguished by its lack of the tail rotor is often used specifically in the UK for the air ambulance. Also at fleet includes several helicopters of the type AS 355 Ecureuil 2
