Aerolite completed the medical interiors for the Bell 409 helicopters of Alvac, Air Saint Luke, of Boise, Idaho
Aerolite, August 09, 2017 - Aerolite announced today it delivered medical interiors to its long-standing customer Alvac of Boise, Idaho.
These new Bell 429s will replace the helicopters currently operated in Boise and Twin Falls.
The new 429s are equipped with Aerolite’s modular and lightweight emergency medical services (EMS) interior.
With a weight of approximately 220 pounds (100 kilograms) for an interior with the full range of medical capabilities, Aerolite succeeded with its goal of providing an interior that fits Alvac’s operational needs.
