Mecaer Aviation Group Announces FAA STC for Air Medical Interior
Mecaer Aviation Group and INAER Italy has successfully validated its Airbus H145 medical interior system with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
Mecaer Aviation Group, June 29, 2016 - Irving, TX – Mecaer Aviation Group, Inc. (MAG) announced it has successfully validated its Airbus H145 medical interior system with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
The initial system was launched with Inaer, part of Babcock International Group, which is one of the world’s leading providers of mission-critical services.
“Inaer was the first H145 air ambulance customer for Airbus and in 2012 we partnered with MAG to develop a customized medical interior,” said Monica Mazzei, Inaer’s Sales Director and Fleet Manager. “MAG was the first to certify the HEMS kit for the H145 model,” noted Mazzei. “The launch ship went into service in 2014 and Inaer has since purchased ten additional systems, with more to come.”
The system incorporates lightweight components, cost-effective cabin choices and is certified for more than ten layout alternatives. The interior can be converted quickly without special tools to fulfill various operating needs, ranging from dedicated air medical to search and rescue (SAR) and law enforcement.
“We are pleased to offer the U.S. marketplace a new medical interior alternative,” said Armando Sassoli, Co-General Manager of Mecaer Aviation Group. “MAG’s air medical system is generating considerable interest with operators that are looking to address varying mission requirements and operational objectives.”
In addition to providing customizing services for air ambulance providers, MAG also has substantial experience with corporate and VIP interiors in a variety of platforms for Airbus Helicopters, Bell Helicopter and Leonardo’s Helicopter Division.
