PAC International (PAC), a Metro Aviation company, has delivered a fully customized Bell 407GX to the University of Utah’s AirMed program, located in Salt Lake City, Utah. Established in 1978 as the eighth air medical transport program in the nation, AirMed provides care throughout northern Utah and Wyoming.
The new addition to the fleet is outfitted with a custom LifePort/PAC medical interior, modified cockpit to allow for night vision goggle (NVG) capability, audio and FM communication system, autopilot, radar altimeter, air conditioning and bleed air heater. The BH407GX also has snow baffles and bear paws for landing in snow and ice.
AirMed uses state-of-the-art equipment for their ER in the sky, including invasive line management and intra-aortic balloon pumps, as well cutting edge airway technology. “We work closely with our customers to ensure a true custom configuration, never asking them to choose from preconfigured options that may limit their ability to provide the level of care they are known for in their communities,” said PAC Completion and Projects Manager Marty Blough.
