Spectrum Aeromed Equips Four Bell 407 Helicopters for Survival Flight, Inc.
Spectrum Aeromed announces that the company’s articulating stretcher and medical interior has been installed in four Bell 407 helicopters for Arkansas-based Survival Flight, with two more installations planned.
“The articulating stretcher provides improved safety for both our patients and our employees,” says Survival Flight CEO, Chris Millard. “The design is rugged, and the ability for the Spectrum Aeromed system to pivot into place to align with the stretcher allows our team to more easily secure patients.”
Spectrum Aeromed vice president and account executive, Ricky Reno, worked with Survival Flight to customize the order. The system from Spectrum Aeromed was designed uniquely with Survival Flight colors to continue the easily recognizable paint scheme.
“Survival Flight has an expanding diverse fleet of aircraft, and we are honored to know that our system is helping them save lives throughout Arkansas, Illinois, Missouri and Oklahoma,” says Reno. “Our team was able to customize the system to meet their needs from the largest piece of equipment even to smallest. We even had special seatbelts with their colors built.”
Survival Flight operates nine Bell helicopters and one Pilatus PC-12, giving it great versatility to aid not only with helicopter air ambulance emergencies but also patient transports. The company offers annual memberships and continues to expand its operations.
Survival Flight's CEO, Chris Millard, will be attending the annual Air Medical Transport Conference in Charlotte, NC. Spectrum Aeromed will also be attending and on display in Booth #301 from September 26-28.
