AirMed shortens trans-Atlantic legs with Learjet
Oxford air ambulance specialist AirMed has enhanced the capabilities of its Learjet 35A fleet after receiving an STC for the installation of dual long range navigation equipment and the addition of dual long range communications.

Oxford air ambulance specialist AirMed has enhanced the capabilities of its Learjet 35A fleet after receiving an STC for the installation of dual long range navigation equipment and the addition of dual long range communications.

This installation allows unrestricted MNPS operations across the North Atlantic, meaning that AirMed can now fly shorter routes across the North Atlantic including the North Atlantic Tracks (NAT Tracks). This can have a significant impact on the sector times and can even take out the requirement for refuelling stops, greatly reducing costs. As an example, as long as weather permits, AirMed can now fly non-stop from the east coast of Canada to the UK without the need to undertake the usual tech stop in Iceland, which saves £2,500 on that sector. Other examples would include from the west coast of Africa to South America and the Azores to the east coast of Canada.
