FAA and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) have granted a supplemental type certificate to Aerolite for an air medial cabin for the Bell 429. According to Hans Bretscher, vice president and general manager of Aerolite’s operation in North America, says that demand for the STC installation is high, with three helicopter interiors already underway. Equipment includes a workspace for up to three medial personnel, single and dual-stretcher options, a quick-change incubator and medical monitors, ventilators and pumps on an overhead sliding track.
