Bombardier has sold two Learjet 75 Liberty
aircraft to North Dakota-based Fargo Jet Center (FJC).
75 Liberty aircraft, which will enter service this year, are to be converted to dedicated medevac configuration
and delivered to Lotnicze Pogotowie Ratunkowe (LPR), an air
ambulance service provider in Warsaw, Poland.
“The Learjet 75 Liberty
aircraft, with its best-in-class spaciousness, speed and range, is
an excellent choice for medevac missions,” said Stéphane Leroy,
Vice President, Sales, Bombardier Specialized Aircraft. “Learjet
aircraft have long been a trusted platform for all types of
special missions, and the Learjet 75 Liberty aircraft gives
operators even more reasons to choose the world’s best light jet.”
Fargo Jet Center has extensive experience
converting aircraft interiors for medevac use. FJC is expected to
take delivery of the Learjet 75 Liberty aircraft from Bombardier
in late-2020, then deliver the converted EMS aircraft to LPR in
Poland in 2021.
Spectrum Aeromed, also based in Fargo, has been
selected as the air medical equipment provider on the project.
“It is a pleasure to be
working with Bombardier, LPR and Spectrum Aeromed to develop one
of the most capable light jet EMS aircraft in the world today,”
said Patrick Sweeney, CEO, Fargo Jet Center. “Our team brings a
unique skill set to this project through our extensive history in
modifying aircraft for special missions. From initial conception
to design, fabrication and installation, our experts will

acquisition of the new Learjet 75 Liberty aircraft fits perfectly
into our strategic plans for growth in Poland and will provide the
necessary combination of speed and range to drive the expansion of
our operational capabilities and EMS transport availability into
international operations,” said Wojciech Wozniczka, LPR Director
of key project management.
The Learjet 75 Liberty aircraft is
ideal for EMS conversion as it has a flat floor, room to
accommodate up to three stretchers and sophisticated medical
equipment, as well as seating for medical staff.
With its range of 2,080 nautical miles, out of
Warsaw the Learjet 75 Liberty aircraft can reach all of Europe, including Iceland,
and beyond into Northern Africa, Russia and the Middle East.
