Sweden’s national air ambulance organization (Kommunalförbundet Svenskt Ambulansflyg KSA) has ordered six PC-24 jets from Pilatus. The Nidwalden-based aircraft manufacturer will supply the jets in a fully equipped air ambulance combination, writes a statement. They will provide aeromedical care across Sweden from 2021.

“The highly professional selection process confirmed that the PC-24 is indeed the perfect aircraft for medevac missions,” commented Oscar J. Schwenk, Chairman of Pilatus. The aircraft impressed with its speed and the ability to use short runways. Other benefits include its cabins, which have space for up to three patients plus medical staff, and the large cargo door for rapid loading and unloading of patients.

The KSA is the first European air ambulance organization to order PC-24 jets, which were first used in this area by the Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia. Schwenk sees “further worldwide market potential”.
