Two Learjet 75 Liberty light jets will serve as air ambulances for a Polish operator following an order from Warsaw-based Lotnicze Pogotowie Ratunkowe (LPR), Bombardier announced last week. As part of the order, Fargo Jet Center in North Dakota will convert the twinjets into a medevac configuration and Fargo-based Spectrum Aeromed will provide the air medical equipment.
Fargo Jet Center expects to take delivery of the aircraft in late 2020 and deliver them to LPR in 2021. They will be the first jets for 20-year-old LPR, which operates a fleet of 27 air ambulance helicopters and two turboprops.
“The acquisition of the new Learjet 75 Liberty aircraft fits perfectly into our strategic plans for growth in Poland and will provide the necessary combination of speed and range to drive the expansion of our operational capabilities and EMS transport availability into international operations,” said LPR director of key project management Wojciech Wozniczka.
With the Learjet Liberty 75’s 2,080-nm-range, LPR will be able to reach all European destinations from Warsaw, including Iceland, Northern Africa, Russia, and the Middle East, according to Bombardier. Its cabin size can accommodate up to three stretchers, medical equipment, and staff.
