Exclusive Solution from GVH Aerospace Available Immediately
On 1 February RUAG Aviation announced it has selected the AEROSTRETCHER Mk IV from GVH Aerospace as the medical evacuation stretcher solution for the Dornier 228. The EASA approved Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) solution is now offered by RUAG under exclusive contract and is available immediately, the company confirmed.
The STC features a modular design for maximum flexibility in all situations: medevac teams are able to transport their patients securely throughout their mission, including transfers to and from the aircraft, thus avoiding any disruption in medical care; easy stretcher fastening and unfastening within the cabin promotes speed of care and reduces workload; and a multi-fit floor interface system quickly adapts to varying cabin configurations for better responsiveness to passenger and mission needs.
“We are pleased to provide an outstanding stretcher solution suitable for all Dornier 228 aircraft. The AEROSTRETCHER Mk IV reflects the versatility and functionality of the aircraft and ensures stability within what can be challenging operating environments,” commented Thomas Müller, Product Manager Dornier 228 at RUAG Aviation. “The very straightforward features of the STC are ideal for safeguarding effective medevac missions and also allow the STC to remain an economical solution.”
“Our product improvement efforts reflect the needs and operating interests of our Dornier 228 customer base. At the same time, we are dedicated to a proactive approach when it comes to identifying qualified, high performance support products, such as medevac stretchers,” added Volker Wallrodt, Senior Vice President Business Jets, Dornier 228 & Components, RUAG Aviation.
