Cessna Placing First Medevac Sovereigns with Egypt's Smart
Egypt's Smart Aviation will take
delivery this year of the first two Citation Sovereigns certified
for medical evacuation (medevac) with a dual-patient system from
LifePort. The two medevac Sovereigns are part of a six-aircraft
order from Smart.
Smart Aviation, based in Cairo, is one of Egypt's leading
charter companies with operations throughout the Middle East,
Africa and Europe. The medevac mission will be in addition to
Smart's regular VIP charter service.
LifePort, a leading supplier of medical interiors for aircraft,
will certify a Patient Loading Utility System (PLUS) in a single
configuration for the Sovereign this month and will complete the
requirements for the supplemental type certificate for the dual
patient interior in the third quarter. Smart's Sovereigns will go
into service soon after.
"The Citation Sovereign is the perfect platform for our various
operations, giving us the range, cabin space and operational
performance we need for our customers," said Gen. Sameh Anwar
(Ret.), chief operating officer for Smart.
"The combination of the Sovereign cabin and the LifePort PLUS
will give us an unrivaled medical evacuation capability."
