Our History

Entering the market as a new Helicopter EMS Interior provider, we wanted to fill the gap with our competitors with particular attention to quality, customer support and customizing capabilities. For this reason we created an Engineering and Design Office in South Africa capable of studying EMS solutions and structuring an Engineering office for STC achievement and Amendment in our Headquarter.

Further we set up a logistic store for prompt Customer Support and teamed with a Part 145 for STC installation and new helicopter’s completion in USA. Since now we can design, engineer, produce and certify any customised EMS/SAR interior to meet our customer’s specific requirements on whatever helicopter type.

Our first FAA STC certification has been achieved in Novembre 2017, and will be valid for AW119 family and for AW109E; AW109S will be certified immediately after through an STC Amendment. We’ll bring the kit worldwide through EASA/CAAC/JCAB STC validations and local offices in all 5 Continents.
