On Thursday 29th January 2009 Northampton based aviation company Sloane Helicopters, was delighted to host an event at Sywell Aerodrome to showcase a sophisticated Stretcher System, produced and supplied by LifePort, a leading manufacturer of specialised internal EMS aircraft configurations.

The event gave Sloane Helicopters and LifePort, the opportunity to engage with a number of current users of Emergency Medical Service aircraft, along with providing attendees with a series of presentations from representatives of both Sloane Helicopters and LifePort.

All attendees were given detailed information focused around Medical Interior Options, compatible with AgustaWestland aircraft, including the MedDeck Patient Handling Platform whose pivoting geometry allows safe and controlled patient loading. A product demonstration was given in the Company’s new EMS configured AgustaWestland A109 Power aircraft. 

Sloane are pleased to report that the array of attendees and supporters included Operations Managers, Paramedics, Pilots and independent Aviation Consultants, covering a fleet of 11 Air Ambulance Helicopters, providing Emergency Medical Services to 15 Counties Nationwide.

“It was a wonderful opportunity for us to meet and liaise with many different users of Emergency Medical Services countrywide. The event gave many individuals closely associated with the EMS market and AgustaWestland, an excellent opportunity to view and test an innovative Patient Loading System from LifePort first hand” said Giorgio Bendoni, Sales and Marketing Director of Sloane Helicopters.

“I was extremely pleased that we had the opportunity once again, to engage with Air Ambulance Charities Nationwide. We are really pleased to be working so closely with a global manufacturer and supplier of customised interior components for the Aviation Industry. We look forward to continuing to build relationships, and network directly with representatives of Air Ambulance Charities in the future” said Jeremy Awenat, Managing Director of Sloane Helicopters.
