Pel-Air, a subsidiary of Rex, has taken delivery of the first of five Beechcraft King Air 350 aircraft for the NSW Ambulance fixed-wing patient transport service. Pel-Air was awarded this contract in February 2020.

The aircraft will undergo modifications locally, to meet the very stringent requirements of NSW Ambulance. This will allow the aircraft to carry out a range of operations like standard patient transfers, new-born and pediatric emergency transport service operations, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation operations, intra-aortic balloon pump operations, bariatric patient operations, over-water aeromedical transfers and major incident responses.

The King Air 350 aircraft, with serial number FM-88, will be registered as VH-AMD. Pel-Air’s preparations for the start of operations are progressing to plan and Pel-Air is currently recruiting the pilots needed for the beginning of operations on January 1, 2022.
