United Rotorcraft announces it was awarded the contract by Enloe Medical Center of Chico, CA to complete the medical center’s new Eurocopter EC130 T2 aircraft. The contract includes the manufacture and integration of a new Federal Aviation Administration (STC’d) approved medical EMS interior and avionics suite. The aircraft is slated to be delivered during the fourth quarter of 2013.
The medical interior design will be based off United Rotorcraft’s current EC130 B4 HEMS interior, but will incorporate new next-generation advances to meet the needs of Enloe’s operations as well as any future EC130 T2 customers. The aircraft will be outfitted with a right hand side loading patient system that will allow for greater patient access, transport of neonatal patients in isolettes, advanced cardiac patient transports on Inter-Aortic Balloon Pumps (IABP), as well as other critically ill or injured patients.
Additionally, the cockpit instrument panel features avionic upgrades including dual Garmin 430s, Garmin G500H, Skywatch 497 TAS, Satellite Weather, and Skyconnect satellite tracking and voice communication.
