Polish Medical Air Rescue (PMAR) has placed an order with aircraft manufacturer Tecnam for three Tecnam P2008JC Mk II airplanes – a single engine fixed-wing aircraft.

The two new planes have been acquired to enable PMAR to internally meet its training needs, allowing it to train more pilots. It currently operates a fleet of two fixed-wing aircraft and 27 helicopters.

“We were delighted to be invited to participate in Polish Medical Air Rescue’s rigorous selection and evaluation process and we are delighted to that we were selected above a number of other competitors,” Paolo Pascale, Tecnam’s CEO said. “PMAR not only valued the overall benefits the P2008JC MkII affords them as a training aircraft, but particularly appreciated the on-going services and support that Tecnam have firmly established a great reputation for.”

The Tecnam P2008 JC offers carbon-fibre fuselage, metal wings and stabilator, resulting in a more fuel efficient and much quieter aircraft, according to Tecnam. The Mk II version also features an improved avionics suite, including Garmin’s G3X Touch display with a MD302 attitude instrument.

PMAR has been in operation since 2000 and has transferred 116,000 patients in its lifetime.
