Our Bombardier Challenger Jet costs are very similar to the other UK air ambulances, at around £2M year per aircraft/helicopter
Each jet costs the same as four operational road ambulances per year, or as we prefer to say, we will save the NHS at least the cost of four road ambulances per annum, roughly £2M per annum....
But, to do that we require your help...Support us with a donation today!
The Challenger makes a great platform and is a very flexible air asset for the UK
Why Did We Choose the Challenger Aircraft?
SkyAngels has choosen this aircraft for our UK operations because the Challenger 601-3R is more like an airliner than a private jet.
Comparable to the Boeing 737, it offers much more cabin space than any similar aircraft. It is quiet, fairly economical, handles well with very low noise and vibration levels.
Patients and medical teams will love the spacious, comfortable cabin with stand-up room and room to "work" on the patient in-flight.
To be exact, the cabin has a width of 8.2 feet and a height of 6.1 feet. It is usually configured to seat between six and nine patients/medical team members, with two-four life-ports [stretchers] but can be configured for as many as nineteen patients, or up to eight stretchers.
There are 115 cubic feet of baggage space available in an internal compartment.
