Western Aircraft has been named an authorized customer support center for LifePort, a designer and manufacturer of air medical equipment and cabins for air ambulances. Under the authorization, Boise, Idaho-based Western can provide maintenance, repair, overhaul, modification, and parts for LifePort’s cabinetry, flooring, operator consoles, powered loading systems, seating, stacking litters, and advanced life support equipment.
“This unique equipment is critical to air medical operators completing their missions,” said Western Aircraft director of aircraft services Jody Harris. “We are excited that we can provide the support required to help keep both patient and crews comfortable.”
Western has supported a variety of aircraft converted to air ambulances, including Pilatus PC-12s, Hawkers, Falcons, Cessna Caravans, and Beechcraft King Airs. “We recently refurbished equipment from South Africa,” explained Harris. “The capability to accomplish work on this equipment without the airplane coming into the facility is vital to the air ambulance operator.”
A unit of Wichita-based Greenwich AeroGroup, Western Aircraft is a full-service FBO and FAA-certified repair station and authorized service center for a range of general and business aviation OEMs.
