Life Link III will add an additional Leonardo AW119Kx aircraft to their existing fleet of helicopters, as well as a Leonardo AW109 Trekker. Spectrum Aeromed will outfit the aircraft interiors with the latest in aviation and clinical advancements, including state-of-the-art mobile medical equipment essential to the in-flight care of all types of patients. When complete, Life Link III crew of both aircraft will be able to convert the interior medbay from a standard stretcher setup to a NICU isolette quickly and seamlessly, in addition to many other configurations.
"At Life Link III, we focus on innovation and are always adding new equipment to our program. We are proud to have a strong partnership with Spectrum who continue to offer new, safe and effective solutions that help us meet the needs of our patients and crew members,” said Kolby Kolbet, Vice-President of Clinical Services for Life Link III. “With a shared commitment to innovation and safety, we know that we can always depend on Spectrum Aeromed to help us provide our crews with the tools and resources to do their job in a safe and effective manner.”
Installation to be completed in 2021
Matthew Christenson, Vice-President Account Executive at Spectrum Aeromed, added: “Spectrum Aeromed is proud of our partnership with Life Link III. They are a top-level team, and Spectrum Aeromed is able to effectively provide air medical equipment for both their rotor- and fixed-wing aircraft to meet their high demands. Building a relationship with a customer takes time and trust, and watching that grow into a partnership makes these projects rewarding and fun.”
Spectrum Aeromed anticipates the Leonardo AW109S Trekker interior installation to be completed in March 2021, while the Leonardo A119Kx is expected to be completed in November 2021.
In August, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, there has been an increase in requests for isolation units; Spectrum Aeromed and ISOVAC Products have partnered to support the demand.
