Quick Air expands fleet


Quick Air Jet Charter has added a second Learjet 45XR in 2018 to its air ambulance fleet. The German operator now has 10 air craft dedicated to air ambulance missions.

The aircraft were reconfigured to be suitable for air medical usage by Quick Air’s own Part 145 maintenance facility ASK-Air Service Klausheide cooperating with a Part-21 design organisation. The facility carried out the entire cabin re-fit inhouse which it said includes the installation of a Lifeport PLUS double stretcher system. The aircraft was also modified with a replacement of the standard flooring by a certified, easy to clean and disinfectable rubber floor and the conversion of the first cabin seat to provide wider access for the patient loading ramp system.

“With this step the renewal and modernisation of the fleet begins. Modern aircraft and state-of-the-art medical equipment are an investment in patient safety and in the operational efficiency of the fleet,” said Georg Griesemann, Deputy Manager of Quick Air.

The new cabin layout will allow space for two intensive care patients with two full medical teams including two flight physicians and two flight nurses. In a different configuration, the aircraft is able to transport one stretcher onboard and up to seven passengers are able to fly beside the patient.

The aircraft also has an outer baggage compartment which can easily offer space for up to five suitcases, a wheelchair or a rollator.
