Wysong Enterprises, Inc. has delivered a Bell Helicopter 407GX to Med-Trans Corp. prior to the Air Medical Transport Conference. This is the first 407GX in Med-Trans’ extensive fleet across the United States. Med-Trans is one of the world’s largest operators of Bell 407s with approximately 40 in their fleet.
“We have worked on numerous aircraft for Med-Trans in the past five years,” said Rodney Wysong, vice president. “This is the first of three 407GX aircraft that we will be completing for Med-Trans by the end of 2014. In the past five years we have completed more than 20 new Bell 407s for various EMS operators.”
The work by Wysong included customized exterior painting, avionics, EMS interior, and airframe modifications. Some of the equipment that Wysong installed included a HeliSAS autopilot, Free Flight RA 4500 radar altimeter, and ASU Night Vision Goggle cockpit modification. Wysong also added a Donaldson inlet barrier filter, Air Comm air conditioner and heater, custom exterior LED scene and safety lighting in addition to other modifications. The customized EMS system includes a Lifeport litter system and numerous Wysong EMS systems.
“This newly completed aircraft from Wysong will be a great addition to our fleet and we look forward to receiving the next two,” said Med-Trans director of marketing and public relations Reid Vogel. “Wysong has worked on completing new aircraft and also modifying existing aircraft for us for years. The addition of these aircraft will bring our fleet total to 68 aircraft across 57 programs in the United States. At Med-Trans we continue to update technology and equipment in order to continually fulfill our mission to continually improve the lives of those we serve.”
