Part 135 operator GrandView Aviation will be Embraer’s launch customer for a convertible medevac interior STC that the Brazilian airframer developed for its Phenom 300 light twinjet. “With the Phenom 300MED conversion, our aircraft can transition from a passenger cabin interior to medevac in a matter of hours, allowing for maximum operational efficiency,” said GrandView COO Jessie Naor. “We already operate diverse missions, and the Phenom 300MED further adds to our ability to meet a wide variety of client needs.”
Aerolite will provide the equipment for the Phenom 300MED’s medevac interior. The installation will be performed at Embraer’s service center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. “We are sure this will be the first of many conversions around the world,” said Marsha Woelber, Embraer Service & Support’s head of worldwide executive jets customer support and aftermarket sales.
Baltimore-based GrandView owns 10 Phenom 300s as well as Sikorsky S-76D and Bell 407GXi helicopters.
