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.

Jet Rescue flies through the winter season!

January 14, 2010

Scottsdale Arizona – Jet Rescue Air Ambulance is a company that provides domestic and worldwide air ambulance service, 24 hours a day and seven days a week. The company provides specialized medical teams to critically ill and injured patients anywhere in the world and has the capability to organize the most complex repatriation missions.

Many people ask themselves how an air ambulance copes with difficult weather circumstances such as we are seeing this winter. Fast moving fronts, ice fog, strong winds, snow and flat light conditions are part of the winter period. These conditions require careful planning in order to minimize their effects. For these kinds of conditions special winter operating procedures are in place. Let us have a look at both take-off and landing as this is regarded by most people as the most delicate part of flying and aircraft

Take-off

Before an air ambulance aircraft takes off, the second officer checks if there is ice on the wings and reports his findings to the air ambulance captain. For take-off it is necessary to have the wings clear of ice or anything that will adhere to the wing and cause a reduction in lift or alter the aerodynamics of the wing. In case ice was found on the wings the captain calls in the ground crew for de-icing the air ambulance.

After a call from the air ambulance captain the ground crew heads to the air ambulance and de-ices the airplane with heated de-icing fluid which consists of Ethylene or Propylene Glycol, diluted with water. This special fluid is sprayed, under high pressure, onto the air ambulance to melt the frost, ice and snow. Once the airplane is de-iced, the air ambulance is ready for take-off. The de-icing takes place about 15 minutes before take-off.

Landing

In winter conditions the runway surface can be very treacherous. Before landing advanced information about the current conditions of the runway is obtained by our air ambulance captain.

When landing is in process, visibility is of the upmost importance. The air ambulance co-pilots` job is to monitor the aircraft instruments. He is in charge of making sure that the control navigation system is working correctly. The air ambulance captain is in charge of monitoring the instruments until the aircraft gets near visibility minimums. If the runway lights are in sight, and the aircraft is due to snow or rain at or above visibility minimums, the air ambulance captain will disconnect the autopilot and land the air ambulance manually.

Winter conditions such as ice fog and snow can only make flying dangerous if winter operating procedures are not in place. If you choose Jet Rescue Air Ambulance as your air ambulance provider the patient is guaranteed a smooth and safe flight, no matter what season we`re in!

Flight Coordination Department - Air Ambulance

On July 29 th 2009 Jet Rescue Air Ambulance transported on one of its air ambulances an American tourist that had experienced serious medical problems while on vacation. The patient was diagnosed with Pneumonia, shortness of breath and was connected to a ventilator. Both doctors and family decided it was better for the patient to be transported back to the US in order to receive adequate medical care.

Jet Rescues` highly trained and compassionate medical team transported the patient from Shangai, China to Los Angeles California via air ambulance.

Jet Rescue air ambulance`s medical infrastructure allows transporting critically ill patients that are ventilator dependant from one continent to another.

For Jet Rescue Air Ambulance it was important that the patient and its family did not get confronted with the burden of all the bureaucracy, paperwork and hassle that comes with an air ambulance transport. Especially in China the language and cultural barrier can cause big delays and frustration to the patient and its family.

The Jet Rescue Air Ambulance flight coordination department made all the necessary arrangements to fly this patient back home bedside to bedside despite the fact that it was a Holiday in China.

Jet Rescue Air Ambulance commitment is to provide safe, quality, affordable air medical transport and relieve case managers and patients’ families of the burden of travel logistics.

Jet Rescue Air Ambulance always stresses for people to check if they are covered for air ambulance transportation when travelling outside of the United States.

With the rising cost of medical fees overseas, foreign facilities not accepting US Insurance and sometimes sub standard medical care it is important to buy a travel protection plan.

Jet Rescue Air Ambulance

Jet Rescue Air Ambulance, a worldwide provider of air ambulance services with bases in Scottsdale AZ,Guadalajara MX and Toluca MX announces that the organization is the first Latin American Air Ambulance company in process for obtaining the EURAMI (European Association of Aero-Medical Professionals & Organizations) accreditation. Obtaining this prestigious accreditation would be of great importance to Jet Rescue Air Ambulance as it would objectively confirm the quality standards of the company.

EURAMI is a Stuttgart (Germany) based non-profit association of air medical professionals and operators from 27 countries in and outside Europe The association aims to promote air rescue and to develop and harmonize quality standards and to improve patient care and safety in air medical transports.

Quote: “EURAMI Accreditation Standards are periodically revised criteria to assess an Air Medical Service’s level of quality in terms of capabilities, medical management and qualifications, aircraft’s configuration and equipment, operational issues, communications, management policies, quality management, and/or specific requirements for fixed wing and rotor wing aircrafts. These Accreditation Standards are based on legal standards of the European Union (European Standards, e.g. EN 13718-2), international expertise, and the experience of leading European Air Medical Services.”

In order to obtain the EURAMI Accreditation, Jet Rescue Air Ambulance has to accept a specially arranged visit, a thorough inspection, assessment and evaluation performed by a specially trained EURAMI Auditor. When the EURAMI board gives the green light, customers will start to note Jet Rescue’s EURAMI certification and know that they are securing a flight with a reliable air ambulance service.

The EURAMI accreditation would not only show that Jet Rescue Air Ambulance complies with the strict American Air Ambulance standards but also with the European standards!
