Le Bourget-based air ambulance company Medic'Air is planning to change its Falcon 50 at the end of the year in favour of a Falcon 50EX.
The company has also recently been granted EURAMI certification, becoming the first operator in France to do so. The process took 10 months to complete, during which time Dr Eric Lotz, medical director, brought all internal processes in line with EURAMI's specific quality requirements, and established its sister air ambulance company under the name Skyfirst.
"Our target is to take off within a couple of hours day and night mostly to pick up acute patients in eastern Europe, the Middle East or Africa," says Dr Herve Raffin. "Our customers entrust to us their subscribers or workers in an emergency, and we have to reinforce their confidence. EURAMI accreditation can help us in this goal more than to increase our number of flights."
