EagleMed Christens Aircraft “Shocker Copter”

EagleMed is flying an Air Medical Helicopter outfitted in Wichita State University’s black and gold WuShock mascot over the skies of south central Kansas. The special design celebrates successes of the WSU Shocker athletics program.

Based at EagleMed headquarters in Wichita, the Textron Bell 407 is equipped with an air medical services interior, designed for critical care transport. It has complete medical systems including oxygen, suction, air, storage, electrical power, and approved provisions for securing medical support equipment during all aspects of flight.

“This is a great opportunity for EagleMed to show our Shocker spirit and to give back to the community we call home,” said EagleMed President Larry Bugg. “We appreciate Wichita State University permitting EagleMed to proudly display the WuShock symbol as we conduct lifesaving helicopter transports for our friends and neighbors in need.”

The Shocker Copter was officially dedicated in ceremonies today at EagleMed’s main headquarters and hangar at Wichita Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport. For photos and video, click link below.

EagleMed operates air ambulance helicopter and airplane bases in 12 states including Kansas.

*Inside Scoop*: This aircraft originally was located in South Dakota, and had a bison silhouette, see below!

Air Evac Lifeteam Expands in the state of Louisiana

Air Evac Lifeteam has announced its newest base, #124 in Opelousas, LA.
According to the mayor and a few other locals, this has spurned the creation of 16 new local jobs, and expanded the use of the city’s general aviation airport.

Air Evac Lifeteam’s bases currently span 15 states, but AEL members enjoy the added coverage granted by AEL’s alliance in the AirMedCare Network.  Being a part of AMCN provides their members with coverage across an additional (at the time of this post) 16 states, bringing the total to 31.
