I have been asked to inquire by Administration which Pedi/Neo teams fly in a Bell 407. We are considering a site visit and want to know where to go. Please email me contact information. Thanks in advance.

Did you ever receive any info regarding this topic? Just curious if you found anyone and if so, what configuration they used and the team composition.

Nope, never got any replies. Other than doing Internet seaches, that is about it. I saw you replied to my post from last year also. I think all of my teams issues would be solved if we had our own truly dedicated rotor, sitting on our pad, and loaded with our stuff. But hey I might be asking for TOO much.

Probably no teams actually agree to such cramped quarters and weight restrictions...

Our service flies Neonates in a 407. We did the same thing in a 206 up until a year and a half ago.

Wings Air Rescue in Johnson City, TN has a neonate team that flies in a 407, at least they used to when I lived there several years ago.

A 407 has got to be better that those flying A-Star's and doing Peds-Neo. I know of two programs that fly 407's that are dedicated Pediatric- Neonatal aircraft. They are listed below with website information. I hope this helps!

Looks like a 206 to me, you can tell by the lack of a main rotor cap.

I think you are right Mike, it also has only two rotors instead of four, but nice looking aircraft!

Way cool - I've never seen a 4 rotor helicopter except as a concept drawing in Popular science. Does it use a pair of contrarotating blades or 4 discrete rotor heads? :lol:
