Our ﬂeet of aircraft for long distance air ambulance transports ranges from our most cost effective Pilatus, a high speed, high altitude, single engine, fuel efﬁcient turboprop to world wide coverage Lear jets of various sizes and conﬁgurations. Each air ambulance aircraft receives a special priority designation during ﬂight by air trafﬁc control and are conﬁgured as dictated by patient needs, with a stretcher and nearly all the equipment one would ﬁnd in a hospital ICU including cardiac monitor, ventilator, IV pumps, oxygen and capability to monitor vital signs, blood glucose and many of the same medications required by critically ill or injured patients as would be required by that patient. Our aeromedical staff are all critical care certiﬁed and experienced from having worked in an emergency department or intensive care unit. The lead aeromedical specialist will range from a physician, RN, or paramedic and may include a respiratory therapist.
All patients will have an aeromedical transport team customized to their medical needs. Cost is proportional to the level of medical staff and needs of the patient: Critical care transport with a physician or nurse and respiratory therapist will cost more than a basic life support(BLS) ﬂight with a single paramedic. Since all staff are critical care certiﬁed and experienced, in the unlikely event that a patient deteriorates medically, every level of medical staff is capable and experienced and will work diligently to stabilize the patient while the pilot diverts and makes an emergency landing to get the patient to a hospital.
