Aviation Fabricators (AvFab) recently announced they have received Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) approval for the installation of their Beechcraft 36/58 Stretcher Kit for the Beechcraft 36 Bonanza and 58 Baron aircraft from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).
The stretcher kit provides an operator with the option of transporting an ill or injured patient and is ideal for an operator who doesn’t need critical care medical equipment, making it an economical alternative to a complete medevac system.
“Receiving EASA approval is a big step towards reaching our goal to make these stretcher kits available to operators around the world,” said AvFab’s GR Lowe. “We will continue to pursue these certifications on many of our products in order to offer complete solutions for operators no matter where they are located.”
The stretcher kit includes stretcher unit and cover, Ferno 12-1 (square ends) folding aero litter, mattress, mattress cover, installation instructions, and weight and balance data. Optional Ferno model 1402 (tapered ends) is available. There is no aircraft modification required for the installation, the three passenger seats are simply removed and the stretcher is installed on the existing seat attach points.
