PIPER PA-42 CHEYENNE IIIA
The Piper PA-42 Cheyenne turboprop aircraft with two engines is an ideal choice for medical air transports, and business trips within this location.
Our company has two of these elegantly shaped and verstile airplanes. This model has a pressure cabin, which can sustain a normal atmospheric pressure. This feature not only makes the flight more comfortable for the passengers, but it is also an essential condition of medical air transport. Since both plains have a cargo door, it is easy to load cargo and move the stretchers. One aircraft is equipped with one stretcher, while the other has a double stretcher, so we can transport two patients simultaneously if necessary. In business seat configuration the aircraft provides comfortable trip for 7, in shorter distance for 8 passengers.
Among small size jet aircrafts used for air ambulance transports, the Piper Cheyenne’s cabin rivals the LearJet35’s and the Cessna Citation’s cabin dimensions. The Piper’s cabin size is even one meter longer., which – during patient transport – allows a more comfortable patient’s care and access in both (one-stretcher or double-stretcher) configurations. Our airplanes have uniquely wide doors.
The Piper airplanes’ cruising altitude is 28.000 feet (9 km), their speed is over 500 km/h, and their range is almost 1.800 km. They are very flexible to use, due to their a short runway requirement, so we can choose the closest airport to our destination. These features also enable us to reach our destination comfortably, under optimal circumstances, and also at a reasonable cost. To take into consideration the above characteristics it’s clear that in European/Mediterranean locations jet aircrafts don’t have significant advantages to the Pipers concerning speed and consequently our aircrafts provide an ideal choice both for patient and transplant transports in the region.
