Trakkabeam A800 searchlight chosen for first UK night EMS operations
Trakka Corp Pty Ltd today announced that the A800 Trakkabeam Tactical Searchlight has been successfully installed and operated on the first UK Air Ambulance cleared for full night operations. The aircraft installation from Bond Air Services for the East Anglian Air Ambulance EC135 aircraft marks a first for UK HEMS operations. The Trakkabeam searchlight’s primary use for a HEMS aircraft is to survey a potential landing zone prior to the aircraft touching down in cases where a helipad or airfield cannot be used.
“Trakka is proud to have been selected by Bond Air Services to provide its industry-leading tactical searchlight to support the East Anglian Air Ambulance aircraft,” said Martyn Kemel, General Manger, Trakka Corp Pty Ltd. “This partnership reflects the recognition that the Trakkabeam has become the benchmark in aviation searchlight technology, due to its sleek, aerodynamic characteristics, low power draw, low weight, superior mission functionality and reliability.”
“We strive to fulfil the operational mission and logistical requirements of our clients with cutting edge technology, innovative products, and exceptional customer service.”
