Late last year Aerolite received an FAA validation for a previously issued EASA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for a new lightweight EMS interior for the AW139. The cabin can hold two patients and is also compatible with FLIR, rappelling, fast rope and hoisting equipment.
The new multi-mission interior allows for the configuration of EMS, SAR and police mission. The interior can be converted from an EMS set up to an 8 or 11 passenger configuration. Aerolite has won contracts to supply 11 interiors for two different US customers to be delivered through 2012.
