Aerolite, a designer and manufacturer of helicopter and fixed-wing aircraft interior solutions, recently delivered medical interiors for long-standing partner Alvac, based in Idaho, US. These have been fitted into the company’s two new Bell 429s.
Aerolite says that these new helicopters are equipped with modular and lightweight emergency medical services (EMS) interiors. The unit only weighs around 220 pounds (100 kg), and is equipped with a full range of medical capabilities, including a primary patient stretcher and removable secondary patient stretcher, stretcher loading platform, swivelling medical seat, flooring, oxygen system, incubator platform, medical equipment integration, night vision goggle (NVG) compatible lighting, electrical system integration and stowage provisions.
“We are honoured Alvac and its subsidiary Idaho Helicopters put their trust in Aerolite again for these new helicopters,” said Hans Bretscher, vice-president of Aerolite America.
