Clinton, MO – October 21, 2016 – Aviation Fabricators (AvFab) recently announced they have received Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) approval for the installation of their medical stretcher for Pilatus PC-12 series aircraft from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The Pilatus PC-12 Medical Stretcher received FAA approval on Oct. 20, 2016.
AvFab’s Pilatus PC-12 Medical Stretcher Kit provides an operator with the option of transporting an ill or injured, non-critical patient. These stretchers are ideal as an economical alternative to complete Medevac systems for the operator who doesn’t need critical care medical equipment. “We saw a need for an entry-level Stretcher Kit that would benefit charter, or corporate, or even some private operators, who could realize more utility from their PC-12 without having to purchase a full-blown medevac unit,” says AvFab’s G.R. Lowe, “and it’s light weight and easy to install.” Models are available for both left hand and right hand installation. Kit includes the stretcher, mattress, Ferno 12-1 adjustable patient litter, safety restraint system, complete installation instructions, diagrams, and weight and balance data.
