(FARGO, ND. —March 3, 2015) Spectrum Aeromed completed its first of four Agusta 109/119 equipment kit installations for TriState CareFlight.
TriState CareFlight offers inter-facility fixed and rotor wing transports, and rotor wing EMS services (excluding maternal and neonatal patients) 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. They operate out of Arizona serving Colorado, Nevada and New Mexico.
The equipment kit includes a left side load pivot system STC for the Agusta 109/119 helicopter approved in 2014.
“Our team is dedicated to providing the highest level of safety in all aspects of our operation and time is an important factor”, said Director of Maintenance for TriState CareFlight Sid Essex, “Spectrum Aeromed’s pivot stretcher allows the crew to load patients with ease while optimizing response times.”
In addition to the pivot stretcher, Spectrum Aeromed also installed a base system with drawers, oxygen and electrical system in the cargo area that routes up to the cabin valances.
“The left side load pivot system STC for the Agusta 109/119 helicopter was a paramount project of 2014,” said Vice President Account Representative Matthew Christenson, “We are honored to enhance the crew’s patient loading system and we look forward to the next three installations.”
