Pilot Patrick Mahany was killed and another flight nurse was injured.

Airbus Helicopters, which manufactured the aircraft, confirmed it’s paying some of the $100 million but declined to say how much. Airbus spokesman James Darcy called the crash a tragedy and said the company has made safety improvements.

Gary Robb, one of Repsher’s attorneys, says the other company contributing to the settlement is Air Methods Corp., which operated the helicopter. A spokeswoman had no immediate comment.
