The aircraft, with tail number PP-UTI, which was transformed into a veritable flying ICU (UTI, in Portuguese), is the 100th Embraer executive jet to be delivered in Brazil.

“With this modern aircraft, we can offer the unique and excellent services highly recommended and reflected by the satisfaction of our clients,” adds Jorge Ferreira da Rocha, President of Amil Assistência Médica Internacional.

“The delivery of Embraer’s 100th executive jet in Brazil to meet Amil’s challenging operational requirements makes this event even more important,” says Breno Corrêa, Vice President, Marketing and Sales, Latin America – Embraer Executive Jets. “The rapid growth of the Brazilian executive jet market is a sign of maturity. More and more business people see this product as a powerful tool for productivity – a true time-saver – that helps generate wealth for the company using it and for the nation, as a whole.”

Embraer was responsible for installing all of the equipment on the aircraft, which included a new interior design and assembly, and additional certification by aviation authorities. The current cabin configuration provides horizontal space for a stretcher, and four seats for the medical team and companion, as well as a private aft lavatory. All of the seats rotate, to facilitate reaching the patient and carrying out any necessary medical procedures during the flight.

About the Phenom 300 Medevac
The Phenom 300 was granted supplementary type certification, and the special medical rescue equipment package was installed. It has a ten-hour independent oxygen supply and 1,000 watts of power for running state-of-the-art medical equipment: monitor, defibrillator, pace-maker, oximeter, ventilator, infusion pumps, and transportation incubator. The jet can be used on calls for distances of more than 300 km, and for more serious cases, thus providing patents with comfort and safety. This modern aircraft stands out for its high cruising speed (839 km per hour), for its ability to operate on short runways, and for its spacious interior. With its range of 3,650 kilometers, nonstop flights can be made from the base, in São Paulo, to any Brazilian capital city, and to a few cities outside the country, like Buenos Aires (Argentina) and Santiago (Chile). The new version of the Phenom 300 is equipped with the traditional Patient Loading Utility System™ (PLUS) manufactured by LifePort, which is one of the largest companies in the world for customizing Medevac aircraft. This complete system unites electrical, mechanical and gas-powered components to provide greater safety and efficiency for loading, unloading and accommodating the patient, without interfering with the jet’s functions. There are independent points of entry for electricity, so that the system runs without impacting the aircraft’s electrical systems; the stretcher locks into place, for greater safety, especially during turbulence; and 10 hours of oxygen support. Other distinctive characteristics of the aircraft include its agility and speed, but with fuel economy. The jet has the highest pressurization level in the light category, which is an important point for patients who need to remain as close to sea-level conditions as possible. The entry door of the airplane is the largest in its segment, facilitating loading and removing the patient. Features that make the jet an excellent option for Medevac operations are its comfortable and spacious cabin. Furthermore, the capability of operating on short runways allows access to many places in Brazil and in other countries, offering greater flexibility for using the airplane.
