Spectrum Aeromed announced this week that the company was selected to equip Turkey, based Redstar Aviation’s new Bombardier Learjet 45XR with new air ambulance equipment. Previously Spectrum Aeromed equipped a BAe Jetstream 32 EP and another Bombardier Learjet 45 for Redstar Aviation. The new aircraft will begin operation in January of 2017.

“We have a working relationship with Redstar Aviation that has been in existence for many years,” said Vice President and Account Representative Thomas Redder from the Munich, Germany office of Spectrum Aeromed. “On their previous aircraft we equipped them with a dual ICU stretcher configuration. We are thankful that they will be using our equipment once more on their new aircraft.

Redstar Aviation is an air ambulance company that has been in operation since 1989 and is a subsidiary of Gulf Helicopters Company from Doha, State of Qatar.  Redstar Aviation is the first private air ambulance company in Turkey.  Redder will be attending the Middle East Business Aviation Association (MEBAA) show December 6-8 in Dubai along with Redstar Aviation representative that will be attending on December 7th.

“Redstar has been using Spectrum products for more than a decade and we are very happy with Spectrum Aeromed’s solutions,” said Redstar Aviation Accountable Manager Emre Dursun. “The support and solution-oriented approach of Spectrum Aeromed is vital for Redstar for this long-lasting relation between our organizations.”

Redstar Aviation is already planning another purchase of an additional Bombardier Learjet 45XR that will be equipped with more Spectrum Aeromed equipment.


Having commenced its Air Ambulance operations in 1989, Redstar has become the leading and most-preferred solution provider of international assistance and insurance on global scale. Redstar obtained its initial Air Operator’s Certificate from the Ministry of Transportation in 1989, and currently conducts its operations under AOC number TR-AT-015. Redstar takes well-deserved pride in being the first Turkish private Air Ambulance Company accredited to local and international organizations and currently expanding its operations with fully dedicated ambulance fleet of Bombardier Learjet45 aircraft.

Founded in Izmir, Redstar relocated its headquarters to Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen Airport (LTFJ / SAW) in 2002 and is since Feb 2014 a subsidary of Gulf Helicopters Company who is located in Doha, Qatar.
