Germany-based SPAES has released its latest offering in response to the new EU Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2023/1020, which outlines equipment requirements for helicopter emergency medical services (HEMS) flight operations. As a Part21J and Part21G operation, SPAES is well-positioned to assist operators in meeting these regulatory obligations efficiently.
Under the new regulation, HEMS operators are required to implement certain equipment upgrades to enhance safety and operational capabilities. SPAES is proud to offer the installation of a moving map display, a crucial tool for enhanced situational awareness and navigation assistance. This advanced display system provides real-time location information, terrain awareness and obstacle alerts, enabling HEMS crews to make informed decisions quickly and efficiently during critical missions.
In addition, the company is also equipped to install a radio altimeter with annunciator, a vital instrument that provides accurate altitude information and audible warnings. This combination ensures precise altitude monitoring and enhances flight safety by alerting the crew to any deviations from the desired altitude.
"We are thrilled to introduce our comprehensive suite of solutions for medical systems on a global scale," says CEO Joachim Schanz. "As a Part21J and Part21G organisation, we have a deep understanding of the regulatory requirements and the unique needs of HEMS operators. Our meticulously designed medical equipment aims to optimise functionality, space utilisation and patient comfort, thereby enhancing the overall capabilities of HEMS missions. Our expertise, combined with our commitment to delivering quality and timely services, positions SPAES as the ideal partner for HEMS operators seeking equipment installations and modifications."
