I was talking to a rep from Aerospatiale helicopter back in the 80's, he had told me that if need to the co-pilot seat can come out and be stored in the baggage compartment in the unlikely event that it would be needed to put a stretcher in. I understand the new ones you can't do that. Can the co-pilot seat be placed sideways behind the pilots seat?

You're asking for trouble having an unsecured seat AND a patient in an Astar. If you really need the seat out, just leave it on scene. It'll still be there when you get back, maybe.

The newer crash seats are quite different from the older style. Much taller. You could secure the co-pilot seat behind the pilot (on the bench) and have one medic but it would be very tight.

If you get the squirrel cheek cargo pod then the front seat might fit in the left side pod, though contact Airbus to verify. I would caution you against doing impromptu medevac flights for the public for all the reasons previously stated.

When life's path is steep keep your mind even.

Isn't that the truth about Alaska! I'm finding that out more and more I'm up here. It's like a Rodeo in this part of the country.
