Our Fleet Capabilities
Rivaling patient care in some of the finest hospitals, AirMed medical jets are equipped for virtually every critical care scenario. And unlike travel insurance or other medical evacuation membership programs, we have our own fleet so we can guarantee a quality medical flight and exceptional care across the board. AirMed invests heavily in the planes it purchases. In fact, the average price of our planes is $9 million. After the purchase, we spend anywhere from 60 – 90 days permanently configuring it as a state-of-the-art flying intensive care unit.
As an FAA-certified Air Carrier with worldwide operating authority, our flight department consists of Part 135 ATP Certified flight crew that are simulator trained annually and are type-specific rated. Maintenance professionals are required to release long-range aircraft for each flight and accept the aircraft upon return.
From our Birmingham base, AirMed provides worldwide service to our customers utilizing two Raytheon Hawker 800 air ambulance aircraft. In addition to the standard gaseous oxygen systems used in most medical jet aircraft, these long-range aircraft are also equipped with a liquid oxygen system allowing longer transport of ventilator-dependent patients without the need to replenish on-board oxygen supply.
