Air transportation for patients is available worldwide and there are many things you should know when preparing for an international air ambulance. Not all air ambulances can do international flights, as the planes must be specially equipped in order to travel long distances. With a specialized aircraft and crew, your patient or loved one can have a safe, effective arrangement of transport to and from every city in the world. Flight coordinators can assist with Consulates in order to make the transition from one country to another legal and smooth. The aircrafts provided by licensed air carriers are designed to meet the needs of basic life support and critical care patients, as they are equipped with state-of-the art equipment. There are many different kinds of medical staff for different patients on board international air ambulance flights. These may include include trauma physicians, orthopedic surgeons, heart specialists, respiratory therapists, and ICU/CCU licensed registered flight nurses and paramedics. All medical flight team members should be trained in flight physiology and have emergency and non emergency experience. It can sometimes be arranged to have a flight nurse or paramedic on board a commercial flight which is a viable alternative in many cases to a private international air ambulance.
A coordinator at air ambulance can arrange transfer from bedside to bedside to make your family or patient have the smoothest international possible. Flight team members have the ability to navigate foreign territories, airports, and hospitals. You want to be provided the best service possible for your family or patient. Remember that safety and care of your patients is priority on all international air ambulance flights.

I would like to thank everyone involved from turning a potentially difficult experience into an enjoyable one. My mother,Mary, and I enjoyed the flight, and the flight nurse, was terrific. He really allayed all our fears, and we felt perfect confidence in him.
The pilot and first officer were also wonderful and instilled great confidence in us. All in all, it was a marvelous trip and we can’t thank you enough!!!
This letter commends the efficiency and professionalism of your organization during the recent transport of our aunt, Lisa Cordero, from New York City to Cleveland. The flight crew was courteous and helpful. Your flight coordinators were exceptionally competent in arranging a quite difficult transfer.
Where we have had frustrations with lawyers, bankers, and doctors, we had only the most ‘can do’ attitude from all of your staff. We have recommended your service to a colleague and will continue to do so without hesitation.
