About AirCARE1

AirCARE1 was founded in direct response to the need for air ambulance services to address safety concerns identified by flight nurse Denise Waye earlier in her career. The primary focus of nursing care is to provide for the medical and emotional needs of patients in any care setting, even if that care setting is in transit.

However, the procedures and policies often put in place in air ambulance companies focus on air safety and not patient safety. The flight might be safe, but the nurses can’t do what they need to do to provide the best possible care for their patients.

AirCARE1 has addressed this problem with the belief that air ambulance services are about the patients. While the flight safety is priority, the goal of the flight is to provide safe and comfortable medical transportation for patients. This is why AirCARE1 was founded and continues to adhere to its high standards of excellence.

AirCARE1 provides medically-necessary air transportation for patients. Most often, air ambulances are used for transportation during a medical emergency or for critically-ill patients. However, other patients may also need air ambulance services, such as for international flights of a medical nature. Providing these services ensures that patients can be transported quickly and safely under medical supervision.

Our Commitment to Safety

AirCARE1 recognizes the need for safety at every moment of transport. In fact, it is the commitment to safety for patients that led to the company being founded. This dedication to safety has shaped the way our organization operates. In order to maintain the highest level of safety standards, we provide safety in two areas: flight safety and patient care. At AirCARE1, both of these areas are equally important. To ensure safety remains the top priority for our pilots and medical teams, we require that they undergo ongoing training which enables the team to maintain the high safety standards set by AirCARE1.

Flight Safety

Flight safety refers to the safety provided during flight by the aircraft in comparison to standards set by the industry. In order to provide the highest level of flight safety, AirCARE1 uses Learjet aircraft, rated one of the safest aircraft in the industry. These aircraft are designed for patients’ comfort and safety, including high speeds and small size, which makes transportation short and landing ability easier, even to and from rural locations with smaller airports.

The pilots we hire at AirCARE1 are rigorously evaluated. Once they are selected, they are required to undergo annual training at a leading training facility. This ongoing training of the crew members ensures that all pilots are equipped to fly the aircraft using the latest safety standards for maximum flight safety for all patients.

Patient Safety

Along with flight safety, AirCARE1 strives to provide safety for patients from the perspective of patient care, as well. After all, patient care is the primary purpose of air ambulance services. This dedication to patient safety is explained in our mission statement, which reads: “Do what is right for our patient at all times as we transport them with exceptional care equal to or better than the best premiere medical facility.”

To accomplish this, the medical staff employed by AirCARE1 go through similar rigorous evaluations as the flight crew. Our medical professionals are all equipped to manage critical care situations during transport and our Medical Director who oversees all flight operations has more than twenty years of experience in emergency room care as well as extensive flight experience as a private pilot.

The medical equipment on each aircraft provides the ability for medical personnel to continuously monitor the patient while the interior design of the aircraft assures as much comfort as possible for the patient during transport. Through the combination of dedicated, high-quality medical attention and flight comfort, patients are well taken care of during each flight.

Dual Accreditation

AirCARE1 is proud to have dual accreditation from both the CAMTS (Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems) and EURAMI (European Aeromedical Institute) air ambulance accreditations. We recognize the commitment it takes to achieve and maintain dual accreditation, which is rare in air ambulance services.

Since we are committed to providing that level of quality care to customers, these accreditations were very important for our organization to achieve. Our dual accreditation provides patients and their families with the reassurance that we are doing everything possible to ensure comfort and safety during medical transportation.

Our Focus on Holistic Care

In health care, holistic care is an approach that recognizes that patients are more than their symptoms or diagnoses. True holistic care approaches each patient from a whole-body perspective, providing for the physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual needs of each patient.

To help accomplish that approach during transport, AirCARE1 air ambulance services go beyond simply providing for the immediate medical needs of the patient. Instead, we try to ensure that patients are comfortable and at ease from the beginning of each flight all the way to the end.

Our aircraft are equipped with noise-cancelling headphones for patients to reduce the noise of the flight. Crew members can also provide hand massages, aromatherapy and other techniques to reduce stress for the patient during the flight. Through these measures, AirCARE1 is focusing on every aspect of care for patients during transport.

Catering to All Types of Patients

At AirCARE1 we know that it’s important for every patient to have access to the high-quality health care they need. That’s why we are able to cater to all types of patients when providing air ambulance services. From premature infants to elderly patients, AirCARE1 is dedicated to providing services for all patients who need air transportation.

Our aircraft are also designed with wider doorways in order to accommodate obese and bariatric patients during loading and unloading as well as during flights. The comfortable flight environment and qualified crew of medical personnel are equipped to effectively manage every patient transportation situation.

State of the Art Medical Equipment

To ensure high-quality care and transportation, AirCARE1 uses state-of-the-art medical equipment that can be used to monitor and care for patients.

  • Our Patient Care System is used during the entire transport, from the patient’s bed to the bed at the patient’s destination site, to provide a safe, smooth ride.
  • Our Patient Loading Utility System works with the aircraft’s ramp system to load and unload patients from the aircraft without tipping, tilting or wobbling during the process.
  • The monitoring equipment used in-flight provides continuous monitoring of every aspect of the patient so any potential problems can be identified and dealt with immediately.

Enhanced Comfort and Smoother Ride

Along with being among the safest aircraft in the industry, the Learjets used by AirCARE1 are designed with comfort in mind. These aircraft can fly faster and at higher altitudes than other similarly-sized aircraft, which reduces turbulence and flight time. The ride is quieter, which can reduce stress on the patient during transportation.

These features, along with the Patient Care System, which is also designed with comfort in mind, create a comfortable environment for patients who are being transported, even if they are critically ill or in a medical emergency.

Commercial Medical Escort Service

When non-critical patients are in need of air ambulance services, we at AirCARE1 want to ensure that they can be safely transported to receive the care they need. That is why we have developed our Commercial Medical Escort Service for patients who may not need a dedicated air ambulance.

When a patient is flying on a commercial flight, AirCARE1 can provide a medical escort for the patient, trained under the same programs as medical personnel who fly on AirCARE1’s dedicated air ambulances, to monitor the patient and provide help during the commercial flight. This is a more economical alternative to air ambulance services that still provides the medical attention that may be needed.

It is important to note that patients must be considered non-critical and meet certain standards set by AirCARE1 in order to qualify for the Commercial Medical Escort Service.
