Cessna Citation 550 Bravo

Description

The Citation Bravo is a medium-sized jet and is one of a large number of ambulance aircraft manufactured by the US manufacturer Cessna. Although it was launched in the 1980s, this ambulance jet is still in production. It has proved to be extremely reliable in recent decades – a fact that is particularly important when it comes to transporting sick patients by air.

We use this aircraft in particular for patient transfers over long distances because the jet’s high speed minimises journey times and ensures that the patient transport is carried out quickly. In addition, a fully fuelled Citation Bravo has such a long range that medical repatriations from the Canaries back to London, for example, can be carried out without time-consuming stopovers. This benefits the patients’ wellbeing considerably.
