Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. today announced it has designed and delivered a state-of-the-art Gulfstream G550 medevac aircraft that will revolutionize in-flight medical care.
The modified G550 was delivered to the Beijing Red Cross Emergency Medical Center during a delivery ceremony at Gulfstream’s headquarters in Savannah.
Gulfstream President Mark Burns and Beijing Red Cross Emergency Medical Center Director Li Libing revealed the new aircraft, as well as the center’s interest in adding a Gulfstream G650ER to its fleet for the same mission.
This aircraft showcases the art of the possible,” said Burns. “When you combine innovation, talent, commitment and expertise, you can transform an industry.
With this aircraft – and our collaboration with the Beijing Red Cross Emergency Medical Center – we have done exactly that.
This modified G550 will change – and save – lives, forever altering the expectations for medevac support.”
“With the G650ER’s speed and range, medical care will arrive faster,” Burns said.
