Air Methods Corporation has
announced its Products Division has received FAA Supplemental Type
Certification (STC) for their AS350 Patient Loading System.
The new system provides a lightweight, durable, easy to use
alternative to systems currently on the market. The Model 1175 PLS
is a derivative of the proven loading system designs currently in
use in EC130, BK117 and AS365 Eurocopter aircraft.
"Ergonomically speaking, the new design will be a great
improvement over our prior system by having the system support the
weight of the patient and stretcher during the loading and
unloading process, versus the flight crewmembers having to support
that weight," according to Kathleen Mayer, Chief Flight Nurse for
Flight for Life of Denver. "It also reduces the maneuvering and
twisting that was previously required of the crewmembers to get the
stretcher properly aligned with the locking mechanism."
"With this new interior we continue to expand our line of
Eurocopter products", according to Arthur Torwirt, Vice President
of Air Methods Products Division. "This Patient Loading System
reflects the latest in emergency medical care technology."
The first AS350 aircraft equipped with this certified system has
been delivered to Flight for Life of Denver.
