G550 Selected To Launch Air Rescue Services In Beijing

Medevac Aircraft Will Be Outfitted For Beijing Red Cross Emergency Medical Center

Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. has announced its Gulfstream G550 aircraft has been selected to launch state-of-the-art medevac services in Beijing. The Gulfstream aircraft will be outfitted with top-of-the-line medevac equipment in support of the Beijing Red Cross Emergency Medical Center.

“The G550’s tremendous performance, outstanding cabin environment and interior flexibility are ideal for medevac missions,” said Scott Neal, senior vice president, Worldwide Sales, Gulfstream. “We are committed to working with customers to deliver an aircraft that exceeds their requirements, and this uniquely tailored G550 is no exception. The aircraft’s customizable cabin will serve as an example for future programs.”

The G550 medevac will be used for disaster relief and air rescue services. The aircraft will feature in-flight emergency resuscitation enabled by hospital beds with inboard tracking capabilities for better doctor-patient access.

Additional special-mission outfitting includes:

  • A medical bay
  • Powered gurney loading system on aircraft stairs
  • Fold-out nurses’ seats for individual patient care
  • Refrigerated medical storage cabinets
  • X-ray viewing equipment
  • Crew rests with berthing

The Beijing Red Cross Emergency Medical Center was established in 2010 and currently has more than 1,000 employees. The Gulfstream G550 will join its fleet of two emergency medical services helicopters, a fixed-wing medevac aircraft and 300 ambulances.
