AMS Heli Design outfits two SARCAMS helos
AMS Heli Design has delivered two AW119Kx helicopters outfitted with lightweight emergency medical services (EMS) interiors to the South African Red Cross Air Mercy Service (SARCAMS).
The helicopters, formerly operated by REACH Helicopter, were repaired, maintained and re-fitted with the new lightweight EMS interior at the company's facility in Denison, Texas. The aircraft weight has been reduced by 103lbs, and they carry additional equipment such as a 35% more capable oxygen bottle and an articulating stretcher offering improved patient handling.
SARCAMS provides aero-medical services and health outreach support services to communities in both rural and urban areas across South Africa.
Andrea Girolin, CEO of AMS Heli Design, said: ‘I was grateful to receive this challenge since I know the value of our kit. It adds incomparable operational advantages through the seat allocation and articulating stretcher and the weight saving is amazing thanks to the use of new materials and interior arrangements.’
