Bell Helicopter’s Prague, Czech Republic facility has delivered two commercially registered Bell 429 aircraft to Turkey. The aircraft were delivered to Saran Aviation and were customized in a Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS) configuration. The modification also included a TCAS system, full cabin audio communication system, marker beacon, maritime communication radio, loud hailer, moving map and an upgraded GPS system.
Based in Istanbul, Saran Aviation, a Saran Holding Group company, will fly the Bell 429s for helicopter emergency medical services. In conjunction with TAA Gokcen Aviation, Saran Aviation’s air ambulance services enable immediate and effective emergency intervention in situations where ground transportation would be inefficient or protracted, resulting in greater risk to the patient to receive timely medical care. HEMS services are provided in 17 regions across Turkey. Saran Aviation also provides helicopter transport services and aircraft sales as a Bell Helicopter Independent Representative.
