TRANSPORTATION

What type of transports do you handle?

We handle domestic and international pre-scheduled, non-emergency, fixed-wing air ambulance, international commercial stretcher and medical escort on commercial planes.

Do you transport for urgent emergencies?

No, we handle pre-scheduled non-emergency medical transportation. If you have an emergency transport or an immediate life-threatening situation, always call your local emergency service (911) to be transported to the closest appropriate facility for stabilization. All our trips are based on the availability at the time of booking. We suggest as much notice as possible; for air ambulance domestic transports, we recommend at least 24hours of advance notice, and for international trips at least 24 to 72hrs notice, depending on the distance and location.

What is fixed-wing air ambulance?

Fixed-wing air ambulances are specialized medical EMS airplanes that handle domestic or international transports over longer travel distances or terrain impractical for ground and helicopter transports. The word fixed-wing stands for wings that do not move and the type of aircraft that generates forward thrust powered by propeller-driven or jet engines. This type of ambulance transport is widely used for trips longer than 300 miles away when there is safe access to airport runways. Fixed-wing air ambulance transports are essential for their increased range for carrying patients between states and countries compared with other medical transport modes. Fixed-wing air ambulance transports are used in combination with ground ambulances to complete the bed-to-bed transfer from and to each airport.
