Blue Hawaiian generated consolidated revenue of approximately $47 million in the fiscal year ending Dec. 31, 2012, with a fleet comprising 24 helicopters including Eurocopter AS350s and EC130s, according to a statement.

Air Methods is the largest provider of aerial medical transport services in the U.S., the company said.
