Wysong Enterprises, Inc., (Wysong) announced this week it has received a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for multiple EMS interior accessories on the Bell 407 and 407GX airframe.
“We have become an industry leader in the completion and customizing of Bell 407 EMS helicopters,” said Vice President of Wysong Enterprises, Inc., Rodney Wysong. “Over the years our EMS customers have expressed a need for certain products that were not available. Wysong EMS kits are meeting our customer’s needs in an efficient manner.”
The EMS kits for the passenger cabin consist of a quick-release mount with adaptors for various popular monitors, a center consolemounted adjacent to the aft-facing seat designed to incorporate medical and communication equipment, overhead mounts for aircraft audio interface and other patient systems, and an over-litter mounted patient shelf, just to name a few. There are various othermounts and accessories for Bell 407EMS operators. The STC also covers the structural mounting of a single or dual externalshoreplug kit. Cold climate operators appreciate the convenience of a shore power system to provide AC electrical power to cabin, engine, and component heaters while the aircraft is parked.The kits are designed to be used in conjunction with and complimentary to other popular third party Bell 407 EMS interior kits.
While these accessories have been installed by Wysong on in-house customized aircraft for a numberof years,the recent STC/PMA approval marks the culmination of Wysong’s fieldtested, EMS product refinement. With FAA Parts Manufacturing Approval (PMA), kits are also now available for purchase by end users or other customizing facilities.
“Over the past 5 years, we have completed over 25 new Bell 407 and 407GX helicopters for various EMS customers. We have enjoyed our unique position of being able to listen and quickly respond to our customer’s needs with innovative product development,” said Wysong.
