Romania’s General Aviation Inspectorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs has taken delivery of two highly customised Bombardier Learjet 75 air ambulance aircraft, to be used in support of emergency rescue services, from Fargo Jet Center (FJC) in collaboration with Bombardier and Spectrum Aeromed.

Unveiled as the first of their kind in Romania and as one of the fastest aircraft types in its class, these two Learjet 75s will improve response times and availability in Romania, particularly in times of life-threatening situations, providing prompt access to urgent medical care.

“The visionary craftsmanship and precision constructed into these aircraft truly highlight our team’s capabilities and expertise in aircraft modifications,” says FJC vice president Randy Jenson. “From conceptual design to fully installed solutions, our proven abilities played a key role in equipping these aircraft for their unique mission of improving healthcare accessibility and response times for critical medical emergencies.”

From its facility at Hector International airport in Fargo, North Dakota, FJC transformed the aircraft from standard passenger configurations to the latest air medical interiors with extensive modifications and performance enhancements. The custom-designed, engineered and FAA-approved modifications include downwash patient lighting, a removable bulkhead, an aft baggage storage cabinet, a 6,000 litre oxygen rack system and a forward cargo bay. Additionally, the factory side entry and lower sidewall interiors were modified and encased in full stainless steel.

“At Bombardier Defense, we take pride in the trust put in our products to conduct demanding missions,” says vice president Steve Patrick. “Bombardier has a 24/7 support infrastructure of experts and service centres worldwide that are ready to provide an efficient and reliable service for the Learjet aircraft. We look forward to continue expanding our partnership with Fargo Jet Center to provide our highly reliable platforms tailored to the mission.”

Spectrum Aeromed supplied the dedicated advanced air ambulance modules and supporting air medical equipment, outfitting each aircraft for the transport of two critical patients and vital medical equipment.
