About AirCARE1: What We Do

AirCARE1 was founded by a flight nurse, Denise Waye, who was dissatisfied with the care provided to those who needed air ambulance services. At her previous air ambulance job, her complaints were ignored and her patients continued to receive substandard treatment that she felt jeopardized their safety and medical care, so Ms. Waye founded her own air ambulance company. AirCARE1 is dedicated to the safety and care of its patients, and the company is founded upon the premise of honesty with patients and their loved ones. Her integrity, dedication, and expertise have helped her company grow into an award-winning air ambulance company that is among the best in the world.

AirCARE1 provides air ambulance services to those in the San Diego area who need transportation to distant medical facilities, whether within the U.S. or in another country. We use only Learjet aircraft because of their outstanding safety record and their efficiency for long range travel. Learjets provide a quiet, comfortable ride, which is essential for our patients’ comfort level. They can safely travel at higher altitudes which ensures a smoother ride for our patients.

AirCARE1 Is Dedicated To Safety

We believe that our patients have a right to the safest air ambulance service possible which applies both to the actual transportation as well as the medical care we provide in transit. Our flight crews, medical technicians, and our team of medical professionals are among the best in the business so you know that the care you or your loved one will receive is the best possible whether you’re flying into or out of the San Diego area. Our aircraft cruises at higher altitudes, which means less air turbulence and a safer ride for you or your loved one. We’ll transport you safely, comfortably, and quickly to your destination. Our fleet of Learjets is kept in top mechanical condition and all the aircraft are equipped with our proprietary airborne critical care unit that helps safely transport the patient from the time he or she is picked up to the time he or she is delivered to their destination. This helps to ensure that our patients arrive at their destinations in the best medical condition possible with the least trauma possible.

AirCARE1 Has Dual Accreditation

AirCARE1 is one of only two air ambulance services to achieve dual accreditation with CAMTS, which is the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems, and EURAMI, or the European Aeromedical Institute. We’re also a preferred provider with the International Assistance Group and are proud to be one of only two air ambulance services to be selected from the U.S. We’re a certified WBEN, or Women’s Business Enterprise, and a proud member of Goldman Sachs 10,000 small businesses. We’re also a member of the NBAA, or National Business Aviation Association. If you need air ambulance service into or out of the San Diego area, whether you’re close to the border, in the county area, or close to Orange County, call AirCARE1 today.

Holistic Care For Better Comfort

We’re passionate about the comfort level of our patients so we provide holistic care services that will enhance their comfort level. Noise-canceling headphones provide patients with therapeutic music during the flight while hand massages help them to relax and enjoy their ride. Aromatherapy is also provided and can help calm anxious patients and put their minds at ease.

AirCARE1: We Transport All Types Of Patients

We recognize that all types of patients can require air ambulance services in the San Diego area so we offer our services to everyone. Whether you need pediatric, bariatric, geriatric, neonatal, or standard air ambulance transportation, our fleet of Learjets can accommodate your needs.

Our team of pediatric medical professionals knows that your child isn’t just a miniature adult; he or she needs special treatment and considerations. Children have different temperature and metabolic requirements than adults and need to be more closely monitored so that they don’t exhaust their limited physical reserves. Our medical flight crews are specially trained on pediatric growth and development from birth to early adulthood so you can have confidence that your child will receive the best medical care possible.

Bariatric patients have special needs both in their care and in their transport. Approximately 60 million people in the U.S. are considered obese. Almost 4 million of them are considered morbidly obese, which is 100 or more pounds over their ideal body weight. Transporting a morbidly obese patient can present issues which our medical and flight crews are trained to handle. Loading the patient is one of the most critical issues, but our extra wide loading doors eliminate part of this problem. Our loading ramps are designed to prevent wobbling or tipping and obese patients are loaded head first in order to protect both the patient and the flight crew during transport. Additional restraints help to ensure patient safety and extra padding helps add to patient comfort. We use the same stretcher for the patient from initial loading to transfer at the final destination. Flights can present health issues to the morbidly obese patient because it’s possible for excess nitrogen to accumulate in the body. Our monitoring systems help to eliminate this possibility. Whether you need domestic or international bariatric air ambulance transport, AirCARE1 can get you there safely, comfortably, and without added stress.

Almost 15 percent of the U.S. population is at least 65 years old. Geriatric patients may have medical conditions that require special accommodations such as additional oxygen, and they may be more susceptible to altitude changes. Some medications normally used for air ambulance patients may be inappropriate for the geriatric patient and they may have more difficulty maintaining an adequate hydration level. Their skin integrity is also more easily compromised than that of a younger patient so minimizing position and stretcher changes is essential in order to prevent skin damage to the geriatric patient. Our padded, proprietary critical care unit enables us to transport our geriatric patients in comfort while maintaining their utmost safety.

Neonatal transport is another of our specialties for the San Diego area and we provide the most comprehensive neonatal air ambulance transportation in the industry. Our NICU transport unit is available for both domestic and international transportation. We have a fully equipped, medical-level 3 NICU with an incubator and highly trained NICU nurses. Our neonatal team is among the best in the industry and they keep current on the latest innovations and advances in their field. This means your tiny baby will arrive safely at his or her destination and will receive the best care possible during the flight.

AirCARE1 Uses State Of The Art Medical Equipment

All of our equipment is state of the art so you can feel secure knowing that you or your loved one will receive the best care possible with the best equipment available. Our Lifeport patient care system is designed to transport the patient in comfort and security from the time they are picked up to the time they are delivered to their destination. Our custom loading ramps are designed to provide a smooth transition to the aircraft and our monitoring is state of the art. We make every effort to ensure the comfort and security of our patients while they’re in our care.

AirCARE1’s Smooth And Comfortable Learjets

Our fleet of Learjets is the ultimate in a smooth and comfortable ride that will deliver our patients to their destinations as quickly and as safely as possible whether they’re flying into or out of San Diego. Our fleet is maintained in top notch mechanical condition and cruises at high altitudes for a smoother ride.

Our Commercial Travel Companion Option

AirCARE1 also provides a commercial travel companion option. This option is more cost effective than a dedicated air ambulance and perfect for those able to fly on a commercial flight, but are in need of medical supervision and assistance during the trip. We’ll make all the flight arrangements whether domestic or international and we’ll provide continuous care throughout the travel process. First class or business class seating will ensure your or your loved ones comfort and we’ll supply FAA approved medical equipment as necessary. Our communication center is available 24/7 to provide flight information and follow up. We’ll also arrange ground transportation at both origin and destination points and we do all of this for both the patient and any accompanying family members. Call our flight coordination team today for more information on this service. There are some stipulations on patients who can use this service, such as they must be medically cleared and non-contagious, but our office can provide you with more details.
