The problem is so many out there are turning down flights for “weather” when it is perfectly safe to fly. As long as operators are using weather as an excuse to mask manning shortages, OOS aircraft, duty time restrictions, etc, there will be helicopter shopping.


Sometimes different operators do have different capabilities based on equipment, training, etc. Comparing a VFR only 206, Astar, or 407 to an IFR base is apples to oranges. Most sending facilities don’t understand that. They just want the patient out of their hospital/ambulance.
