avfab receives easa approval for its popular citation stretcher
May 30, 2018
Aviation Fabricators (AvFab) specializes in developing interior products that enhance an aircraft’s value and versatility. It now has a new European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) authorization to add to its more than 150 unique Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) products, many of which also have foreign approvals.
“It’s important to us to ensure that our products are available to European clients, which is why we take the time to obtain EASA approval. An aircraft is an investment, and we want owners to be able to make maximum use of their asset,” said G. R. Lowe, AvFab cofounder.
AvFab’s STC-approved Cessna Citation 500, 501, 550, 551, 560, and s550 stretcher kit has received EASA Certification 10064887. This medical stretcher provides the Citation operator with the economical alternative of transporting non-critical patients compared to costly medevac units. Initial installation is accomplished by simply removing the seats and furniture on the applicable side of the aircraft and sliding the stretcher onto existing seat rails.
