In 2021, Australia’s New South Wales Ambulance decided to purchase two state-of-the-art PC-24s to further increase the organization’s operational capabilities.
“The PC-24 increases the capability of our aeromedical operations and is ideal for the long distances we have to cover in Australia, it will be a great asset to our clinical staff and patients”, said NSW Ambulance Commissioner Dr Dominic Morgan.
The PC-24 is the world’s first air ambulance jet with a patient loading door. Patients can be loaded and unloaded from the Super Versatile Jet using an electrically powered loading device or with a ramp – patient loading has never been safer, faster, or easier.
“The PC-24 is no stranger to the aeromedical space, it’s a highly sought after platform for many of the top aeromedical organizations around the world. Like the aircraft, the aeromedical configuration has proven itself in some of the harshest operating conditions anywhere. We’re extremely proud that the New South Wales Ambulance has chosen our aircraft to save lives and serve their community”, said Pilatus Australia’s CEO, Sebastian Lip.
The very first PC-24 with medevac interior was delivered in November 2018 to the Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia (RFDS Western Operations).
