FARGO, N.D., 6 Oct. 2015. Spectrum Aeromed enginers have equipped the Argentine Army’s new Cessna Citation business jet (bizjet) with a complete air medical interior, including a Spectrum Aeromed advanced life support system with a defibrillator, ventilator, infusion pump for administering medicine, and other critical care and medical equipment. The Argentine Army this year also purchased two Cessna Grand Caravan C208 aircraft with an equipped medical interior.
Spectrum Aeromed worked with Textron Aviation for the completion of the sale.
“This new aircraft will give the Argentine Army the ability to serve the entire country,” says Spectrum Aeromed Vice President Ricky Reno. “This new aircraft will not only supplement the two Caravans, but also give them greater speed and range.”
Argentina covers a large land mass that includes tropical forest, dry deserts, and even polar regions. Some of the locations are in remote areas that make air medical transportation essential.
Spectrum Aeromed will be showcasing their air medical equipment at the upcoming Air Medical Transport Convention in Long Beach, Calif., from 19-21 Oct. 2015 at booth number 112. Ricky Reno will also be visiting with customers at Helitech in London 6-8 Oct. 2015.
