Who is AirCARE1?

AirCARE1 was founded by a flight nurse named Denise Waye. Ms. Waye was inspired to start her own company after realizing that patient safety was not considered to be an equal priority at her former company. Ms. Waye saw considerable room for improvement in that area, and launched AirCARE1 with the intent of providing exceptional medical transportation to patients. With AirCARE1, you will be transported on a safe and comfortable flight flown by two skilled pilots and with an experienced medical staff onboard. Today, AirCARE1 continues to provide those services based on its core premises of quality customer care, honesty, and safety. AirCARE1 considers the needs of both patients and family members to be a priority, and it takes pride in catering to the special needs of both. AirCARE1 owns a fleet of Learjet aircraft which are operated under their own Air Carrier certificate; authorized by the FAA. AirCARE1’s crew members are trained continually at levels that exceed industry standards for education and training, which ensures that all flights, whether domestic or international, are as safe and stress free as possible.

High Safety Standards

From the crew’s extensive safety training to industry leading patient loading techniques and well equipped aircraft, there are many aspects of safety that AirCARE1 utilizes in flight and on the ground to make sure that you and your family members are as safe as possible while under the company’s care. One unique feature found on AirCARE1’s aircraft is our LifePort system for patient care. This system contains components such as a thicker mattress pad (four inches) than is found throughout the industry, which has a standard mattress pad thickness of just two inches. The custom system also includes a stretcher-based bracket that is used to hold patients’ monitoring equipment in place. Adjustable knee lifts are also found onboard all flights for patient comfort. Collectively, the system’s components give you or your loved one a safer and more comfortable ride as the adjustable components reduce the risk of potential injury and discomfort during the loading and unloading process as well as while in the air. In addition to a customized care system, AirCARE1 uses a specially selected fleet of Learjet aircraft to move you or a family member swiftly and safely from one place to the next. Our Learjets have extra wide cargo loading doors which enhances patients’ comfort and makes loading safer for both patients and crew members. These aircraft can also fly at high altitudes, which makes for a smoother and less turbulent ride for all.

Dual Accreditation

A rarity in the air ambulance industry, AirCARE1 is one of the few medical transport companies to have a dual certification from both CAMTS and EURAMI. CAMTS is an acronym for the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems. It is a nonprofit organization, based in South Carolina, that seeks to recognize medical transport companies around the world that abide by a stringent set of industry criteria. In some states in the U.S., including New Mexico, having a CAMTS certificate is required for companies to legally transport medical patients from one hospital to another.

The EURAMI certification also applies to medical transport companies. Like CAMTS, EURAMI certifications are granted to organizations in the United States and around the world. EURAMI, which is the European Aeromedical Institute, promotes quality medical transfers worldwide, which is accomplished through thorough training, research, and accreditation. EURAMI’s goal is to set uniform standards that companies will abide by to make each ride safe, comfortable, and smooth for patients.

Well-Rounded Holistic Care

All too often, patients are treated in part rather than as a whole. AirCARE1, however, considers the needs of the whole patient, which emphasizes comfort, ease, and safety. A suite of state-of-the-art medical equipment covers the medical aspect of each patient’s care, but AirCARE1 also provides other services that make the flight more enjoyable for both patients and family members who may be traveling with them. Some of the holistic treatment methods employed by our medical staff include noise-canceling headphones playing therapeutic music, aromatherapy and hand massages. The comfort of family members traveling with patients is taken care of with the LearJets’ luxurious interiors, which have large plush seats and plenty of legroom.

Specialized Patient Care

There are few restrictions for patients traveling with AirCARE1, as the company’s aircraft are specially designed and equipped to meet the complex needs of a wide range of patient groups. Small neonates, for example, will fly with an in-flight NICU unit with a special monitoring system. The flight will be staffed with highly trained neonatal experts, which includes a neonatal physician and a team of NICU nurses. Each neonate flight is equipped with a Level 3 intensive care unit which allows crew members to stabilize, transport, and monitor even the most vulnerable neonates to their end destination.

Another special group of patients that we services are pediatric patients. Your child has unique physiological and psychological considerations that AirCARE1’s talented crew take into consideration while traveling. Children’s bodies respond in different ways to flying at high altitudes, and especially over longer distances. Therefore, a highly trained team of pediatric professionals flies on each AirCARE1 flight to monitor pediatric patients and provide whatever care they may need in the air. The team will evaluate your child’s age and developmental level when preparing for transport to ensure the highest level of care possible is provided.

Elderly patients are also flown to the recipient hospital with a crew that specializes in geriatric care and understands the unique concerns of flying geriatric patients. From liftoff to landing, the crew allocates medicine, oxygen if necessary, and also monitors the condition of the patient’s skin during the flight.

Lastly, AirCARE1’s team is equipped to safely move obese and bariatric patients from one hospital to the next. The elongated cargo loading doors on AirCARE1’s aircraft enable the transport of patients with a body weight of up to 400+ pounds. The staff is also trained in safe loading techniques, which allows them to load patients headfirst unless their medical conditions dictate otherwise.

State of the Art Medical Equipment

From neonate monitors to adult ventilators, there are many types of state of the art medical equipment that fly with you or your loved one in an AirCARE1 aircraft. The list of equipment used in neonate transport includes the Propaq monitor, a Cross Vent 2i ventilator, and Neonate Isollete. For adult patients, the list of monitoring equipment found onboard includes Alaris Pumps, the LTV 1200Veintilator, and the Propaq MD monitor. All patients will also be transported using AirCARE1’s custom LifePort patient system, which provides continual care through all parts of the journey. Patients are loaded using AirCARE1’s special patient loading ramp, which makes the loading process safer and faster. The stabilized loading ramp also prevents tilting, wobbling, and tipping.

Smoother Rides

Cleared to fly at altitudes of 43,000 feet, which are usually permitted for commercial aircraft only, the Learjets that we use enable a smoother, faster, and more efficient ride than patients will find in most medical transport aircraft. The Learjets are also smaller than many other types of air ambulances, which makes them capable of landing at smaller airports. Our Learjets also have a large fuel capacity, which allows them to fly longer distances without having to make as many stops. This translates to a safer and quicker ride for patients and their families. The cabins of the Learjets are also designed to make rides for all passengers more enjoyable. These executive-level aircraft have spacious cabins with comfortable seating for family members and crew, as well as plenty of room, which makes patients feel less confined.

Flying With a Commercial Medical Escort

If you or a loved one could use some medical assistance while traveling via commercial air, but do not need the full services of a dedicated medical transport flight, going with a commercial airline travel companion may be a good option for you. AirCARE1 offers commercial companions to travel with individuals needing assistance who may have a non-critical illness or injury. To qualify for these services, patients must be able to sit upright and fasten their seat belts. They must also be free from contagious diseases. Provided patients meet these requirements and several more, AirCARE1 will assign a commercial travel companion to escort the passenger during the flight back home. The travel companion will also make arrangements for the patient and his or her family members, including arranging ground transportation and getting all necessary pre-flight medical clearances.
