DATE January 6, 2005 CST PROGRAM AeroCare Medical Transport, Inc. VENDOR Flight Concepts ADDRESS 7601 E Apache, Hangar 22 Tulsa OK 74115 WEATHER Clear, cold, ice on runway AIRCRAFT_TYPE Lear 35 TAIL# N45AE TEAM Pilot, Copilot, Nurse, Paramedic. No injuries reported. No patient. DESCRIPTION Upon arrival at Stillwater OK (SWO) for origination of patient transport, the aircraft departed the end of the runway onto grassy/muddy surface at a slow speed post landing due to ice layer on runway surface. ADDITIONAL INFO The Stillwater OK (SWO) area was one day post ice storm. Pirep in briefing received prior to departure for SWO was the braking was fair to good. Upon landing spoilers were deployed and braking appeared to be working well. Upon reaching the far end of the runway there was significantly more ice on the runway inhibiting braking action and the aircraft skidded oximately 30ft off the end of the runway. The departure from the runway was so uneventful that the medical crew didn't know it until they were asked if they were OK by the PIC. The patient was held at the hospital until we were assisted by Tulsa Life Flight Ground Unit. Tulsa is 90 miles from SWO. Tulsa Life Flight dispatched the ambulance to pick up the AeroCare MTi medical staff at SWO. Proceeded to pick up the patient in Stillwater and then to Tulsa for transport in another AeroCare MTi aircraft. Thanks to Tulsa Life Flight. There was no apparent damage to the aircraft and it was towed from the mud within a couple of hours. The aircraft will be OOS until an inspection is completed.
