LifePort, a Sikorsky company, announced today it has been granted an FAA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) to equip the Airbus H130 aircraft with a lightweight medical interior. The system addresses current operator needs for a low-weight, functional system that can be reconfigured quickly.
System capabilities include:
“LifePort is pleased to see our new H130 lightweight medical interior fully certified and our customer putting aircraft in service,” said LifePort General Manager Noah Zuckerman. “The LifePort interior was designed to be significantly lighter than other systems, further capitalizing on the aircraft’s air medical capabilities.”
“The H130 delivers twin-engine like capability in a single-engine air medical environment. Its’ unobstructed cabin offers full patient access and the large front hinged and sliding rear doors allow for ergonomic loading and unloading of patients. LifePort’s STC’d EMS interior offers our customers another option, without compromise to the H130’s outstanding performance in high and hot environmental conditions.” stated Treg Manning, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Airbus Helicopters, Inc.
LifePort has more than 25 years of experience developing and manufacturing medical interiors for fixed and rotor wing aircraft. This current upgrade to the legacy product further showcases the innovation, collaboration, and commitment to the company’s customers and the industry.
