Why Air MedicalButton
Air Medical provides “COMMITTED. COMPASSIONATE. CARE.” with the highest level of service and patient care available in the industry. One call to our 24/7 Communications Center sets our team in motion for both domestic and international transports. Our Communications Center and flight coordinators manage all aspects of the transport, including:

- Communications with the receiving facility and physician during the entire transport
- Ground ambulances
- Customs and immigration arrangements (for international flights)

Our staff members have all compiled an impressive and diversified resume prior to joining our team. Medical personnel typically have 10+ years of ICU, Emergency Room and/or busy 9-1-1 scene experience. The prior experience they bring to us is then continuously expanded and supplemented by our ongoing training and personnel development. This ensures that when it matters, your loved one's life couldn't be in better hands.
Rest assured that the captain of your flight will be a highly trained veteran of the aviation industry. All of our captains are ATP rated (Airline Transport Pilot) and receive initial and recurrent training at the world renowned Flight Safety International. They also complete additional company training and FAA administered check rides to ensure that they are continuously able to perform at the level we demand.
