WHAT IS AN AIR AMBULANCE?
An air medical evacuation / medevac / medivac is a method of transporting patients who are too ill to travel long distances by ground.
An air ambulance is a private jet that has been specially equipped for a patient that requires extensive or urgent medical assistance during transportation.
It is the safest and quickest travel option for patients who are too sick or weak to endure the rigours of commercial flights.
Private jets and air ambulances can use ten times more airports than commercial airlines, allowing to operate into the closest airports to the treating and the receiving hospitals.
The aircraft is manned by a medical flight crew including a doctor and or a nurse and carries extensive medical equipment including respirators, medication, an ECG, CPR equipment and stretchers.

WHAT ARE THE MOST POPULAR AIRCRAFT FOR AIR AMBULANCES?
1 - Helicopters Eurocopter AS350 – AS355
Helicopters are often used in remote areas or mountains for medical evacuations. Helicopters do not need a runway to land and therefore can get closer to the place where the patient needs to be picked up and the place where he needs to be dropped. However, the range of the helicopters is limited; these can only operate for a maximum of 2 hours flight time.
2- Beech King Air 200
This twin turbo-propeller has made its proofs in the civil aviation, offering cost effective solutions for short-range flights. In addition to its relatively low operating costs, the King Air 200 can operate into airports with short runways and grass runways. Therefore, it is viewed as a good option for medical evacuation, offering a wide range of airports to operate from and into.
3- Learjet 35A
As with all Learjets, the Learjet 35 is known for its flight range, combined with good handling characteristics, low fuel burn and fast cruise speeds. It has a range of up to 1,900nm and is the best option for a speedy medical evacuation for a 3 hours flight.
4 – Dassault Falcon 50
The Falcon 50 is a super-mid-size jet offering an increased range and cabin volume, allowing enough space for both the patients and the medical crew to have a comfortable flight. Its performance levels are high, such as its range and its takeoff distance and steep approached capabilities (Falcons are the only heavy jets allowed into London City airport), make it an excellent choice for flights within 3 200 nautical miles.
5 – Challenger 604
The Challenger 604 is the state-of-the art air ambulance. It has a higher range than the Falcon 50, capable of flying up to 4 000 nautical miles. It can perform long range ambulance flights with no stop and offering ultimate comfort and equipment for the patient, the crew and the accompanying passengers.
