United Rotorcraft receives AW169 EMS contract


Air Methods, August 22, 2016 - DENVER - United Rotorcraft announced it has received a contract from Specialist Aviation Services Ltd. (SASL) of Gloucestershire, England for seven Leonardo Helicopter AW169 EMS interior kits.

The manufactured at United Rotorcraft in Englewood, Colorado, and installed at SASL’s facility at the Gloucestershire Airport.

The interior kits include a United Rotorcraft Translating Patient Loading System (TPLS) which allow for a patient to be safely and efficiently loaded into the aircraft. The patient is then positioned longitudinally for flight while still providing adequate clearance at the head end of the patient for an attendant seat.

“The head attendant seat is critical to patient access and lifesaving care. Our ability to provide this capability is unique to our medical interior and a feature that is not available from any other equipment provider,” said Frank Graham, senior director of global sales and marketing.

In addition to the patient loading system, United Rotorcraft’s standard litter has been upgraded to include rollers which further ease the loading process. Equipment racks are to be installed in the aircraft window wells to maximize storage and provide locations to secure medical support equipment.

Also included in the kit is a free standing equipment rack. The operator can install it at any location in the existing seat track, maximizing flexibility and providing additional configuration options.

“Specialist Aviation Services Ltd. has been a long time valued customer of United Rotorcraft and we are thrilled at the opportunity to support them with this EMS [emergency medical services] solution,” said Graham. “We plan to make the most of this experience to expand our presence in the AW169 market.”
