Mustang Gallops To The Aid Of Air Ambulance
Operators On A Budget...
"What a cool concept," we thought, when we first spied the
Cessna Mustang air ambulance adaptation accomplished by Cessna and
Spectrum Aero-Med... in an industry that lives (and, sadly, dies)
as a result of the speed with which an operator can work, the fact
that an uncommonly cost-effective entry-level bizjet has been
brought into the game is not only smart but offers aid to parts of
the world that, in the past, simply couldn't afford the life-saving
speed a bizjet offers.
This mod is the result of an inspired partnership. Spectrum
Aeromed and Cessna Aircraft teamed together to pre-fit
Cessna’s Citation Mustang 510 for an air medical interior
during aircraft manufacturing.
The aircraft then comes out of the Cessna factory prewired for
Spectrum Aeromed’s air medical equipment, saving aircraft
operators a substantial amount of time when compared to
retro-fitting an aircraft already in use.
By collaborating on the front end of production, operators are
able to purchase an aircraft that is already multi-mission capable
without having to wait for wiring modifications or Supplemental
Type Certification (STC) acquisition, which can take up to eight
months of legwork and engineering time. Spectrum Aeromed holds more
than 55 Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs) covering more than
390 models of aircraft.
