Spectrum Aeromed on October 31 announced it is partnering with Uniflight Global on multiple AW119Kxi interiors, with installation beginning in January 2022 for two HEMS flight programs.

“Amazing things are happening in the EMS/HEMS fields by the medical teams,” said Matthew Christenson, VP and Account Executive for Spectrum. “To be a part of their cutting-edge requirements is very exciting.”

Spectrum is providing a fully dedicated cabin interior that is STC certified for the Leonardo AW119Kxi helicopter. Key features of the interior, according to Spectrum, will include a 10-litre LOX oxygen supply, patient pivot loading system from the left side, two forward facing medical attendant seats and one aft facing medical seat, medical mounting options on the ceiling and back wall, and valance panels for all radios, controls, and outlets.

The project includes a total of six sets of custom equipment built for Life Link III of Minnesota and Mercy Flight of New York. All six custom interior installations have planned completion dates for 2022.


“We are delighted to once again partner with Spectrum Aeromed and their turnkey interior solution for EMS operators,” said Ray Weiser, VP of Sales for Uniflight. “The next six completions were an easy sell — the operators came to us asking for a Spectrum Aeromed solution.” Established in 1982 and acquired in 2008 by Hawke Aerospace, Uniflight Global provide a range of Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) services.

“Spectrum Aeromed’s longtime partnership and close collaboration with these customers encourages innovation to meet their high standards of patient care,” said Ricky Reno, VP and Account Executive for Spectrum Aeromed. The company holds more than 90 Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs) covering more than 450 models of aircraft. Spectrum Aeromed is headquartered in Fargo, ND, with a 17,000-square-foot manufacturing facility.
