Challenger 650 converted for air ambulance service

Swiss Air-Rescue Rega has taken delivery of the first Bombardier Challenger 650 converted into an air ambulance with intensive care units. A further two Challenger 650s are scheduled for delivery to the aeromedical evacuation organization in 2018. Swiss Air-Rescue Rega is replacing its Challenger 604 fleet.

“It is incredibly rewarding for us that Bombardier jets help save so many lives while in service with Rega, and we are thrilled that they will continue to do so for many years to come,” said David Coleal, president, Bombardier Business Aircraft.

“The Challenger 650 aircraft is an ideal air ambulance vehicle, with the reliability needed when emergencies arise and a smooth ride that is essential when delivering inflight medical care.”

Bombardier delivered the aircraft at a ceremony in Peterborough, Canada.

“Bombardier’s Challenger aircraft have more than proven their ability to carry out critical missions over the years,” said Ernst Kohler, chief executive officer and chairman of the management board of Rega.

“With these three new, high-performing air ambulances we are ensuring that Rega can continue to provide reliable and professional assistance to patients all over the world throughout the next 15 years.”

There are more than 1,000 specialized Bombardier aircraft in service, used for everything from governmental and VIP transport to surveillance and reconnaissance and medical evacuation.
