Thanksgiving is about gathering with family and friends.Its a time to be  thankful for everything in our lives.

When it comes to traveling to reach those families and friends, historically, Thanksgiving is one of the busiest times to travel. This year AAA predicts 46.3 Americans will travel for Thanksgiving. Thanks to the lowest Thanksgiving gas prices since 2010, this year a lot more people will not only be traveling by air, but by car too.

According to AAA the Wednesday before Thanksgiving is the busiest travel day of all and most people will travel at least 50 miles or more from their homes to be with friends and family.

Wintery Travel

Those of you traveling on the east coast need to be prepared for winter storms. According to the News, snow storms are already present all along the east coast. New York area, is blanketed by snow 6 to 10 inches.

A messy storm brought drenching rain and heavy, wet snow to the East on Wednesday, awful timing for one of the busiest travel days of the year.

As of late afternoon Wednesday, nearly 670 flights had been canceled, according to FlightAware. Roads were slick and wet from rain or snow all the way from Florida to Maine.

Travel is going to be difficult, but in some areas that have the heaviest snow, it may become next to impossible for a time.

There was snow at the three New York City airports and in Philadelphia as of early afternoon, WeatherBug reported. There were three-hour delays at Newark Airport, a two-hour delay at LaGuardia and 90-minute waits in Philadelphia and at JFK Airport.

Numerous auto accidents were reported across the Northeast, where by midafternoon the line between rain and snow ran roughly along I-95, the chief route between Washington and Boston.

A Few Travel Tips

Of course it’s always best to get to the airport early, but you can also take advantage of the many airport and airline apps that are available for your smart phone. You can see maps of the airport parking areas, keep tabs on flight delays and most airlines allow you to check-in using a mobile app. This can save you from standing in long lines. Try to pack light and avoid checking a bag. Checking a bag will cause more delays and if your flight is cancelled or delayed, you may be without your bag for a while.

For those who are braving the roads, plan out a smart route with GPS, that avoids busy routes. The I-95 corridor on the east coast could see delays from the winter storm. Try avoiding driving on the busiest days, like Wednesday and Sunday. Make sure that if you’re driving in snow, you know how to handle snowy and icy conditions.

Some good basic tips from the Travel Channel include:

Drive slowly on ice and snow – particularly on bridges and overpasses, as these tend to freeze first.

Use your low-beam lights in snow.

Take water, snacks and warm clothes with you, in case you get stuck.

If you skid – don’t panic, don’t slam on the brakes, release the gas pedal slowly and steer the car in the direction the rear is sliding (rear sliding left, turn the steering wheel to the left).

To be safe, just take it slow and don’t take risks – if the roads are too unsafe stop, pull over and put your hazard lights on.

Jet Rescue wants everyone to travel safely and have a wonderful time celebrating Thanksgiving with their loved ones. Happy Thanksgiving from Jet Rescue Worldwide Air Ambulance 877 704 8396

Not All Air Ambulances are Created Equal

The Differences Between Air Ambulance Companies

If you are ever faced with needing an air ambulance, you’ll want to choose only the best air ambulance company available. You want a company that’s professional, caring, safe and passionate about providing you or your patient the best care possible.

The differences that set air medical transport companies apart can be staggering. First Jet Rescue Air Ambulance uses jets. Not just any kind of vintage jets either. Jet Rescue Air Ambulance is committed to patient comfort, safety and outstanding medical care.

That’s why we transport our patients in Learjets 35’s and Learjets 55’s that are configured with the best medical equipment available. Our fleet of Learjets are owned, operated and maintained by Jet Rescue. This is a key difference between Jet Rescue and the competition. Other air ambulance companies charter aircraft, any aircraft from any charter company. Other air ambulance companies are merely brokers trying to get the cheapest aircraft to maximize profit.

This is important, because this so called air ambulances have no access to the history, maintenance and safety record of a chartered or brokered aircraft.

By having our own aircraft, we maintain them mechanically and know them inside and out. Jet Rescue is proud to have a perfect safety record as a result of this.

Why modern Long –Range Medical Jets Are Better Than Prop Planes or vintage Jets?

 Speed is key when you are transporting an ill or injured patient.

There’s really no comparison between the speed of our Learjets and other companies prop planes. Prop planes fly slower and lower.

The result is a bumpy flight for the patient.

What about other vintage jets utilized in the industry?

Older Jets have smaller cabins making it imposible to treat a critical patient in case the patient deteriorates in flight . Critical interventions like CPR or intubation cannot be performed and are needed to save the patient´s life.Also Older jets utilize more fuel having a shorter range. Typical range for this aircraft is 1000 miles.

Our Long-range Learjet 35 and 55 can fly at 45,000 feet and speeds of 451 knots. With a range of around 2,000 miles we can fly anywhere, anytime to international or domestic destinations.

Jet Rescue Air Ambulance is committed to what we do. You won’t find this type passion and commitment anywhere else. We want the entire medical transport to be as easy and comfortable as possible.

In addition to flying you in modern Medical Learjets, we communicate with your insurance company, we arrange your ground transportation, luggage transfer and more. Every aspect is covered and thoughtfully planned out on your behalf. We assure that our medical flight crew is at your side every step of the way. This is our commitment to you so that you can focus all of your attention on your patient or loved one and not be worried about the details of the air medical flight.

How to spot an Air Ambulance Broker

Choosing the services of an air ambulance provider especially during a stressful time can be a very difficult task. Thankfully, the advent of powerful search engines on the Internet has made this task much easier to ensure you are getting an air ambulance provider. easy right? Wrong!

Your search may lead you to an air ambulance broker who portrays themselves as an actual air ambulance operator with websites showing images of aircraft and making promises of providing their “own” aircraft, medical staff and flight crew, when in reality they simply broker these requests while charging hidden outrageous additional fees.

Knowledge is power and knowing the following key points will help spot whether you have contacted a broker or an actual air ambulance operator.

  1. If a website has images of aircraft on it, check if the aircraft tail numbers correspond to the model of aircraft and in turn the company purporting to operate or fly that aircraft. This information can be found on http://registry.faa.gov/aircraftinquiry/NNum_Inquiry.aspx.

Be cautious of aircraft on websites with no tail numbers. Photoshop is a powerful tool.

Look for logos that looks over imposed to the actual image.

  1. Ask for a copy of the air ambulance provider’s Aircraft Operator Certificate or equivalent.

This AOC lists the aircraft the company is authorized to operate. If the picture on the website does not match the AOC then it is not their aircraft.

  1. Caution should be urged where the wording on an air ambulance company’s website is ambiguous-“we have access to Lear jet 35 aircraft” is far removed from “we own and operate Lear jet 35 aircraft.” “we arrange for air ambulance flights” is far from we provide air medical transport on our owned and operated aircraft.
  2. Search engines  can be misleading. Typing in “air ambulance” into an Internet search engine can show results of companies that are experts at engineering websites to achieve high rankings. Not necessarily  at providing air ambulance and medical transportation. If you have any doubt about who exactly is behind the company’s website you are looking at, it may be revealing to check the domain name registration service to see who owns the site.
  3. The company should have a physical mailing address rather than just an anonymous P.O. Box and have local/geographic phone numbers, not just a toll-free number.
  4. Is there a copy of the Air Operator Certificate available on the company’s website? If not, ask for a copy to be sent to you. No company can operate aircraft without this certificate, typically known in the industry as a Part 135 Certificate in the United States or AOC elsewhere.
  5. Be Careful when you call a certain number and they answer with a Generic name. Example: ¨Air Ambulance how can I help?¨
  6. If the person you speak over the phone seems to be doubting  and cannot provide you with immediate information like exact aircraft model, Registration and an immediate quote, its very likely you are talking to a broker.
  7. Look for companies that are Accredited by either CAMTS,EURAMI, or NAAMTA. this organizations have already done their due diligence to give them accreditation.

Brokers may offer a valuable service for those who have never booked an air ambulance service, but be aware of the potential for being misled by those who’s focus is on making a high profit, not patient care.

 

Doing your due diligence will enhance your chances of success in choosing an air ambulance provider who owns and operates their own aircraft. This will save you tons of money and headaches.

Celebrating 5 De Mayo in The US

May 5, 2014 

Cinco de Mayo is a celebration of Mexican culture. The day has become synonymous with festivals, parades, music, fun and food. Cinco de Mayo celebrations have become increasingly popular in the U.S. This Mexican holiday is often mistaken as Mexican Independence Day by some, but the day actually celebrates the Mexican army’s victory over French troops at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War, which lasted from 1861-1867. 

 On May 5, 1862, more than 6,000 French troops under the leadership of General Charles Latrille de Lorencez set out to attack the small village of Puebla de Los Angeles. Mexican President Benito Juarez was able to muster a group of 2,000 to fight the battle against the larger number of French troops. The battle raged for almost a full day, coming to an end when the French had lost almost 500 of their troops.. The Latrille de Lrencez and his soldiers retreated and this signified a symbolic victory for Mexico. The war lasted six years. Eventually, intervention from the U.S. helped force France to withdraw from Mexico and end the war.

 

Surprisingly, Cinco de Mayo is barely celebrated in Mexico as it is in the U.S.  In Mexico, it is primarily celebrated in the town of Puebla, but is not a federal holiday. In the U.S., particularly in California, Arizona and Texas there are multiple celebrations, festivals, concerts and fun events planned.Image

Air Ambulance service leader in Latin America, Mexico and the Caribbean, Jet Rescue, is setting a new standard in patient safety, comfort and care with the introduction of a Learjet 55 dedicated to air ambulance service.

As Jet Rescue´s latest innovation, the Learjet 55 offers patients a spacious cabin accommodating the medical team, up to two patients and two family members. This air ambulance service jet is equipped with the latest critical care equipment such as the new Propaq MD and the Drager Oxilog 3000 ventilator.

“Having a stand-up cabin and enclosed lavatory is important for our clients and crew when flying long distances,” says Carlos Salinas, President and CEO of Jet Rescue Air Ambulance. “With a focus on patient care and safety, we continually look for opportunities to improve the air ambulance industry especially in places medical care is not as developed; such as Mexico and South America.

The Learjet 55 further elevates the level of service Jet Rescue offers its patients and clients.

“Last year we started the task of finding the right airplane to support our 2014 aggressive business plan. “ Our decision to move to the Learjet 55 was motivated by several factors,” says Salinas. “Ultimately, we selected the aircraft because of the advantages it provides our patients. “

The high-altitude capabilities and extended range allow for smoother flights with fewer stops, which is vital to the critically ill and injured patients who are transported.

“The Learjet 55 will be the air ambulance aircraft in our fleet’s future,” says Salinas.

The Learjet 55 has the latest flight management system technology as well as additional passenger comforts such as an on-board lavatory, additional luggage space and seating for a family member. The aircraft is also equipped with dual stretcher capabilities.

Jet Rescue Air Ambulance is the first air ambulance company in Latin America to own and operate a Learjet 55 for dedicated air ambulance service. This air ambulance is based at Mexico City Airport (MMTO) currently undergoing avionics upgrade to have worldwide capabilities, new paint and new interior.We expect to have it operational in a couple of months .Image
