Yingling Aviation modifying King Air for EagleMed medical flights

Yingling Aviation in Wichita is in the midst of converting a Beechcraft King Air B200 for critical care emergency medical flights for EagleMed.

It’s Wichita-based EagleMed’s 16th King Air dedicated for air medical transport.

Yingling is removing the executive interior and installing air ambulance advanced life support systems approved for medical operations, according to EagleMed.

Workers are also installing a new forward cabinet for medical supplies, an aft cabinet for stretcher storage and supplies, side-facing passenger seats, LED lighting, a tracking system and a custom designed cabin intercom system.

The plane will be delivered later this month.

The pressurized turboprop is capable of flying in instrument conditions at a speed of 265 nautical miles per hour and has a range of about 800 miles round trip.
