Critical care interior approved for Bell 429 in Canada

Transport Canada has approved the STC for the Bell 429 United Rotorcraft air medical critical care interior. The interior includes advanced life support for up to two patients, installed in the Bell 429’s 204ft³ main and aft cabin, offering unobstructed full body access to the patients. With this interior, the light twin-engine helicopter can enable two-litter emergency medical service with room for two medical attendants and two crew members.

“Transport Canada’s certification of the United Rotorcraft emergency medical service (EMS) interior is an important milestone in the success of the Bell 429 programme,” said Danny Maldonado, executive vice president of sales and marketing at Bell Helicopter. “The addition of a world-class EMS interior to the exceptional performance characteristics gives the Bell 429 an unparalleled ability to serve aerial emergency personnel as they carry out their lifesaving missions.”
