Hawaii Air Ambulance has expanded its interisland aeromedical fleet with the acquisition of three state-of-the-art aircraft and three new senior managers, a press release states.
The added planes are Beech King Air C90B aircraft with less than 2,000 hours of total air usage.
In addition, Joseph Hunt was appointed HAA president, assuming the lead role in the overall management and operations.
James Hunt and Cheryl Bowers will become vice presidents for HAA, joining doctors Thinh Nguyen, Robert Bonham, Josh Fleming and Thomas Kosasa, who are continuing on as medical directors, and Anita Lucas-Legg who will continue on as chief flight nurse.
Andy Kluger will remain as chairman of the board of HAA, and will assist in overseeing all long-range planning, financial and managerial aspects of the company.
Of HAA’s existing fleet of four Cessna 414As, three are being fully refurbished following extensive voluntary inspections.
Once all of HAA’s planes return to the air, the company will have a total of seven aircraft providing more interisland coverage than any other private aeromedical company in the state, the release states.
