EagleMed LLC, will be adding their 16th fixed wing critical care aircraft in late February. The plane, a Beechcraft King air 200, is being converted over from an executive interior to a medical emergency transporter by Yingling Aviation. The twin engine turboprop can fly at around 265 nautical miles per hour under most meteorological conditions and has a round trip range of around 800 miles. This is great news on the 50th anniversary of the Beechcraft King Air series of aircraft, which has become the standard in private turboprop transportation worldwide and is still being produced with three different models.

“As we grow and require more fixed wing aircraft to support the communities we serve and our AirMedCare membership, we have engaged Yingling Aircraft to convert our latest aircraft acquisition for critical care air medical transport use. Yingling does excellent work in meeting our strenuous requirements for quality, workmanship and passenger safety,” said EagleMed President Larry Bugg.

Apart from fixed wing planes, EagleMed, which is headquartered in Wichita Kansas, operates an additional 15 Eurocopter AS350 helicopters, all within 10 states and is expanding. One of the aircraft is based here in the Austin area at San Marcos Municipal Airport. The company employs over 400 professionals including well trained medics and pilots.
