We only provide professional medical staff that meet all PNG certifications.
Our aircrafts are either twin stretcher or single stretcher and can be configured to suit any task. We carry all appropriate medical equipment and medications to ensure appropriate medical care for our patients.
Our professional medical staff will make an assessment of the patient to determine the suitability of air travel. At all times the best interests of the patient are paramount.
Our planes and facilities are not equipped with humidicribs so we are unable to cater for post natal mothers and babies.
It is essential that the medical team have complete control and access to the patient at all times during the mission. Consequently, the medical staff will make the decision about the appropriateness of a family member travelling on the flight. In the majority of cases the family member gets to travel.
