With the Jet Rangers the co pilot/Medic, moved in back to attend to the patient, and the copilots seat folded up against the control panel so that the patients legs and feet could go there once you shoehorned them in the side door of the Helicopter.

I barely fit in an OH-58/Jet Ranger.  I cannot believe that some one made a quarter of a million dollar vehicle without adjustable seats.  If I sat up straight my head touched the roof which with all the vibrations in an OH-58 was similar to licking your finger and sticking it in a wall socket. 

Maybe I can find an excuse to get some time in a BO-105 someday to see if they live up to their reputation.

Karl- the newer medivac helicopters are much roomier and easier to load and treat patients.  As you can see they are high enough you can just about stand under the tail and the clam shell doors make for a fast load of the gurney.  Much bigger and faster than the old Jet rangers they had twenty years ago.

I have never gotten to play with a BO-105 but I hear that they are unusually smooth, fast helicopters which makes them popular for medivac.
