Which Type of Medical Flight Is Right For Me?
Below you will find some general information about Non-Emergency Medical Flights along with a comparison between Medical Flights and Air Ambulance services.
Non-Emergency Medical Flights
Illness and Disease: Many patients may have an illness or a disease that complicates their ability to fly, or fly comfortably.
Some are too ill to fly on a commercial airline as they require more space than a commercial airline flight can offer, more privacy, a lying flat surface or may just want a more comfortable scenario. There are certainly a lot of benefits to the above reasons, but in addition, it is more convenient and comforting in a private setting, using a private jet charter, and departing/arriving from a Fixed Based Operator (FBO) terminal.
Person(s) with special needs: Whether the patient is traveling with family members or under the assistance of an Aid or Caretaker, they may find traveling on a Non-Emergency Medical Flight much less stressful than flying in a commercial aircraft setting.
When chartering a private flight, there is no waiting in security or bag check lines, or being surrounded by hundred or even thousands of unknown strangers. Some candidate types may be individuals who have recently undergone a procedure and others may have neuropsychiatric disorders such as Autism or DS.
Reasons to use these types of flights
There are a variety of reasons to charter a medical flight, air ambulance, medevac flights, or non emergency medical air transportation.
- Relocating or moving residences
- Hospital transfers, from your hometown to the hospital of your choice
- Family get-togethers
- Due to illness, there are many families who have not had the ability to travel on vacation with their loved ones in the past, flying privately allows for families to travel together in a less-stressful manor, at their convenience – safely and securely.
Air-Ambulance vs. Non- Emergency Medical Flight
The requirements for these flights change based on a variety of factors, and just like every flight we arrange, each of our clients and their situations are unique.
- Both Air Ambulatory Flights and Non-Emergency Medical flights may be performed in private charter airplanes or private charter helicopters.
- The cabin configuration and seating on an Air Ambulance are specifically designed for patients, whereas a Non-Emergency Medical Flight may not be designed in the same layout.
- If you or your family member are too ill for a Medical Flight, or have an unexpected emergency and need greater assistance, using an Air Ambulance Flight with a medical professional team and equipment may be best for you.
- When using a Non-Emergency Medical Flight, it is your choice to either hire or not hire a medical professional team, nurse, nurse’s aide, or caretaker or have family/friends on board during flight. You also may or may not need special equipment or medications.
- Depending on the condition of the patient, when using an Air Ambulance Flight, the medical staff, equipment, and medications will need to be on board.
