Wysong Enterprises, Inc. Delivers Second of Four Bell 407 EMS Helicopters to Med-Trans Corporation


Wysong Enterprises, Inc. announced recently that they delivered the second of four Bell 407 EMS Helicopters to Med- Trans Corporation. The com- pletion work included a custom paint scheme, complete avionics system, airframe kits and numerous safety systems as well as a complete emergency medical interior. “We have completed numer-


ous aircraft for Med-Trans Corporation and the 407s we are completing for them are unique- ly customized to fit their needs,” said Vice President of Wysong Enterprises, Inc., Rodney Wysong. “We are glad to be able


our aircraft in and out as quickly as possible due to oper- ational requirements,” said Director of Maintenance for Med-Trans Corporation Josh Brannon. “Any requirement to move them out to another facility only prolongs the amount of time we cannot use it for operational service,” Brannon explained. The aircraft has an extensive avionics package including a Garmin G-500H EFIS, Technisonics TDFM Multi- Band FM Transceiver, Garmin GNS-530W and GNS-430W GPS/NAV/COMs, TRA -3000 Radar Altimeter, Sky Trac flight following system, Garmin GTX-330 Mode S Transponder, GDL-69 XM Weather and other associated avionics equipment. Several


airframe modifications were also completed including an Air Comm dual evap air-condi- tioning system, Air Comm heater, AFS inlet barrier filter, door openers, snow baffles and the installation of a lead acid battery.


The Safety equipment


included in the configuration is a wire strike protection system; custom exterior scene response lighting, as well as NVG com- patible lighting systems to allow NVG goggle operations. The list of avionics safety equipment included Helicopter Terrain Awareness and Warning System (HTAWS) and Helicopter Synthetic Vision Technology (HSVT). Both of these systems are integrated onto the Garmin G500H EFIS displays. The EMS Interior System installed by Wysong included Life Port provided kits such as a litter system, pilot barrier sys- tem, floor barrier tub, along with numerous Wysong custom designed accessories. Wysong engineering personnel worked closely with Med-Trans person- nel to customize the EMS con- figuration to meet all of the operational requirements, which Med-Trans specified. “We've used Wysong's services over a long period of time. Their quality, dependability, customer service and support are very highly valued by our company. They are also very competitively priced within our industry,” added Brannon. Wysong expects all four 407s to be complete for Med-Trans Corporation by the first quarter of 2012. Wysong has completed approximately 25 EMS 407s for various customers throughout the world.


ROTORCRAFTPROFESSIONAL 8 “The beauty of what we are


able to do here is proven on these 407s. We can customize aircrafts to meet specific mis- sion needs from the inside out,” added Wysong. “We con- tinue to remain an independent company that focuses on the needs of customers no matter how big or small the project is,” he said. ◆
