Our customer needed a special PTU (Patient Transport Unit) for a variety of ambulance aircraft. The unit had to comply with a number of special requirements defined by the client in a specification sheet:

  • Integrated vacuum and air supplying system
  • Integrated oxygen system
  • Carrying of various utensils on an equipment rack (medwall)
  • Space for a variety of medical devices in drawers
  • Swivel arm to relieve the personnel when moving a patient


Beyond that the specification sheet had scheduled the following criteria:

  • Small weight
  • Modern visual appearance
  • Meeting of medical standards

The entire documentation and verification for the approval process was part of the development package.

  • Supplement to flight- and maintenance manual
  • Installation guide
  • Replacement parts catalogue
  • Documented evidence of conformity for the structure
  • Fire protection certificates
