Since 2005 premier medical facilities in the US and abroad have trusted Aitheras to transport critically ill or injured patients around the globe, safely and quickly. What does it take to be the best in the air ambulance business? A demonstrated commitment to meeting a higher standard for safety, quality and performance, a versatile fleet of state-of-the-art, fixed-wing jet aircraft and a team of highly skilled aviation and medical and logistics personnel.
Our work is demanding. Our standards are exacting. Still, every member of our organization feels truly fortunate to have a role in the lifesaving work we do. There is nothing more gratifying than helping people in dire need get the medical attention they need and helping to bring about the best possible outcome in a critical situation.
We’re proud of the work we do every day. Our clients tell us that a mere “thank you” doesn’t seem to convey the depths of their appreciation. We know. That’s why we do what we do.
AN UNSURPASSED INDUSTRY-WIDE REPUTATION FOR SAFETY
Aitheras aims to connect patients to proper care quickly, no matter where they are, and always with superior standards of aviation and medical safety. We’ve set higher standards for safety for ourselves, with ongoing safety training programs mandated for all personnel. Our in-house maintenance department ensures that our aircraft are always maintained to a level that exceeds government standards.
Aitheras has been honored to receive many maintenance awards from government agencies and industry associations such as the FAA, NATA and NBAA. Aitheras is one of only a few fixed-wing operators helping the FAA set new standards for safety in the industry through its Safety Management System (SMS) program, the premier safety program in the aviation industry. Our voluntary participation in the program means that we hold ourselves to standards not yet mandated for carriers our size.
At Aitheras a culture of safety transcends every aspect of our operation, from medical preparedness and training to maintenance and post-flight evaluations. Every member of the Aitheras team is committed to rigorous safety protocols in carrying out their responsibilities. Marks of our superior safety performance and culture include:
