Guardian welcomes the latest addition to Williston
The Bell 407 is a large helicopter that is fast and has the capacity to carry a third passenger, such as a loved one. Guardian Flight is transitioning its aircraft in the region to the Air Evac Lifeteam certificate.

Guardian Flight has brought its new Bell 407 into service at its Williston, North Dakota location. Robert Miller, regional director for Guardian Flight, says the Bell 407 is a larger aircraft that is faster and can carry a third rider, such as a spouse or parent.

“Guardian Flight is in the process of transitioning all of its helicopters in the region to the Air Evac Lifeteam FAA certificate,” Miller says. “Air Evac Lifeteam, a sister company and part of the Global Medical Response family of companies, provides the pilots and the aviation maintenance technicians for these new aircraft.

“Living in rural America, our goal is to get our patients to the highest level of care in the safest and fastest way possible. The cabin is larger, giving our nurses and paramedics more room to provide the best care for our patients.”

The helicopter is equipped with safety features, including the Genesys Aerosystems HeliSAS/autopilot and Garmin 500H/GTN 650 glass cockpit with ADS-B compliance and helicopter terrain awareness and warning system. The autopilot and stability augmentation system enhance flight safety by reducing the pilot workload and increasing flight stability.
