10:40 AM - 10:55 AM GULFSTREAM MULTI-MISSION MEDEVAC (THE PLATFORM MATTERS)

· Proven, global capability providing aeromedical evacuation aircraft to governments, militaries, and private operations around the world based on the industry-leading Gulfstream G550 and G650ER aircraft
· Cabin altitudes less than half that of an airliner platform; noise levels and lighting appropriate for critical care; complete cabin air refresh every two minutes
· Ranges and speeds exceeding every other similar platform; the G650ER has a certified range of 7,500 nn and a maximum speed of Mach 0.925
· Re-configurability adds operational flexibility and at substantially lower operating costs. In addition, minimal maintenance support due to ‘bizjet’ design avoids burdensome and costly logistic requirements
· Fully self-contained patient loading system permitting the safe loading of a non-ambulatory, prone patient with a total payload up to 500 lbs
