The description on the print states:
N916LL is an Airbus EC-155 B1 operated by the Milton S Hershey Medical Center in Hershey, Pennsylvania. The Life Lion critical care fleet consists of three helicopters and a pediatric ground transport ambulance. At all times, two of the three helicopters are in service, with one stationed at the Milton S. Hershey Medical Center and one at Carlisle Airport. Both locations are staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
The three-member flight crew includes a pilot, a critical car nurse, and a paramedic. The aircraft is powered by twin TurboMecca Arriel 2C2 turbo-shaft engines allowing a top speed of 201 mph, a range of 533 miles, and service ceiling of 15,000 feet.
