Sweden Air Ambulance buys 6 PC-24

Wed Aug 21, 2019 4:17 pm

After a long period of intensive and very professionally conducted negotiations, the “Kommunalförbundet Svenskt Ambulansflyg” (KSA) has opted for six Pilatus PC-24s in a fully equipped air ambulance configuration. These PC-24s will provide aeromedical care across Sweden from 2021.

That’ll be a nice addition to the current props. I assume some of those will go (Beach 200’s mostly I think).

I assume that’s the idea. Ambulances are the responsibility of the ”regions” in Sweden, so some regions may not see the need for a helo. Fixed wing ambulances are partially used in a national context (bringing Swedes back from abroad and so on), so I guess the rules are a bit different there. Helos and fixed wings are managed in different organizations. All that is a bit unclear to me, I must admit!

These aircraft will be stationed at UME, ARN and GOT (2 each).
