Air Ambulance introduced the Cessna 404
 Titan into service in 1989. 

 

 
 

Sunstate Airlines of Mildura took over the Air Ambulance contract in March 1989.  Sunstate purchased and modified 6 Cessna 404 Titan aircraft for Air Ambulance operation, of which 4 were required to always be operational.  The tender also required the building of a purpose built facility with offices, patient lounge & holding area, and staff facilities which continues to be in operation today.  In the same year, Ambulance Officers had began replacing Nurses as the Air Attendants. By 1990, Air Ambulance employed 12 pilots and 6 Air attendants.
