AgustaWestland handed over an AW109 GrandNew to SevenBar Aviation in a formal delivery ceremony Sept. 24 at the 2014 Air Medical Transport Conference (AMTC). The GrandNew is the first rotary wing aircraft to be entered into SevenBar Aviation’s fleet.
“We are extremely excited to announce the addition of a rotary wing aircraft to our fleet with the introduction of the AW109 GrandNew,” said Wade Black, CEO of SevenBar Aviation, adding that the addition “will enhance the capabilities of the transport program and ultimately improve patient care.”
The GrandNew will join a fleet of fixed-wing aircraft to deliver advanced in-flight patient care and transport and features a Spectrum EMS Single/Dual Litter capable interior that houses a medical cabinet, a 6.7-foot (2.04-meter) stretcher, patient oxygen system and various medical mounting areas within the cabin. Additionally, the aircraft is equipped with a searchlight and a digital moving map.
