Some patients fall ill while traveling, others get injured while on vacation, and some need to be transported to a medical facility that’s too far to commute to by land. Often people are too sick or injured to fly on a commercial flight. They need dedicated medical attention during their transport. That’s when they call AeroCare Worldwide Air Ambulance. AeroCare has been in the air medical transport business for more than 21 years and know what they’re doing. They provide air ambulance services including, air medical evacuation, medical repatriation, organ transplant procurement flight, and commercial flight medical escort.

Highly Accredited In The Industry

AeroCare is accredited by CAMTS - Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems. This non-profit, national organization holds air ambulance companies to the highest safety standards in the air medical transport industry. Other air ambulance companies try to attain this highly prestigious accreditation, but often fall short of passing the stringent guidelines because their standards and safety don’t meet the strict requirements of CAMTS. AeroCare is one of only 65 air ambulance companies worldwide to receive this highly sought after accreditation. If you’re searching for an air ambulance company and they are not CAMTS accredited, ask them why not? What CAMTS means to the consumer is that they are flying their patient with the safest air medical transport company in the industry.

Learjets are the preferred aircraft for most air ambulance providers, however not all air ambulance providers own their own jets. Some companies that appear to have their own jets actually use other companies’ aircraft. They may also use medical personnel that are not their own, and may not even be trained in flight physiology. They could even be using medical equipment on the aircraft that is not certified for use in flight. These are typically air ambulance brokers and are not CAMTS accredited. Consumers need to be aware that this goes on in the air medical transport industry, and be sure they ask the right questions when interviewing a company.

AeroCare owns their own fleet of medically configured Learjets. The fleet includes a Learjet 31ER, Learjet 35A, and Learjet 55. They also own a Beechcraft King-Air B200.
