The aircraft is also available for retrofit through a partnership with umlaut and Aerolite. The Phenom 300MED, which is now available for customer configuration, includes the Medevac segment. Designed as a solution for both civil and government applications, the Medevac solution will be installed exclusively by Embraer’s Services & Support organization, ensuring quality, reliability, and service experience from the manufacturer.
Together, Embraer and umlaut are developing a comprehensive set of configuration alternatives for the Phenom 300MED, which will feature either one or two stretchers, as well as the ability to carry an incubator and additional medical equipment. The aircraft will also feature hospital-grade trim and finishing. As a purpose-built medevac solution, created in collaboration with multiple companies in the industry, the Phenom 300MED is designed to be quickly and easily configured for both healthcare providers and patients.
Michael Amalfitano, President and CEO at Embraer Executive Jets, said: “The Phenom 300 platform – the most successful light jet in the world – with its unparalleled technology, comfort, and performance, is uniquely positioned for medevac operations. Given the current health crisis, we are proud to be working with two world-class medevac solutions partners, and we are primed to immediately start taking orders for this unprecedented air ambulance solution.”
Tobias Geißinger, Managing Director of umlaut, added: “Umlaut is known for generating full service, cross-industry, and end-to-end solutions. Now, we are combining Embraer and umlaut’s strong competencies in aircraft engineering, refurbishment, and certification know-how to bring an unprecedented solution to the market. Together with Aerolite’s state-of-the-art aeromedical equipment, we will deliver a solution that will transcend the current market. Designed from the ground up, this new solution will offer a hospital-grade interior with the flexibility for configuration and reconfiguration that simply isn’t available today.”
