The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has announced that it has given supplemental type certificate to United Rotorcraft to install its HEMS interiors on AW139s and AW169s.

“The AW169 and AW139 configurations allow for a head attendant seat, which is a cornerstone to patient care and access,” said Frank Graham, United's Senior Director of Global Sales and Marketing. “This differentiator will provide our customers with a state-of-the-art solution to their EMS mission needs and requirements.”

According to United Rotorcraft, the interiors also feature a translating patient loading system, freestanding equipment racks and a medical transport module with a gaseous oxygen system. The aircraft can seat eight passengers.
