Well-known Joan joins Hall of Fame
Joan Sullivan Garrett's founding of MedAire, the provider of integrated safety solutions, plus her testimony in 2001 that led the FAA to ensure US airlines carry AEDs, were crucial in earning her a hall of fame spot.
Joan Sullivan Garrett is a medical safety pioneer.

MedAire founder Joan Sullivan Garrett is to be inducted into the International Air & Space Hall of Fame for her contribution to medical care and safety solutions for the aviation industry.

Since 1963, the International Air & Space Hall of Fame has honoured the planet's most significant pilots, crew members, visionaries, inventors, aerospace engineers, business leaders, preservationists, designers and space explorers.

Garrett's founding of MedAire, now the leading global provider of 24/7 integrated safety solutions for aviation and maritime where remote medical care is in high demand, along with her congressional testimony in 2001 that led to the FAA's final ruling requiring US airlines to carry AEDs on all domestic and international flights, were cited by the San Diego Air & Space Museum in reference to her induction to the Hall of Fame.

MedAire products and services are on board more than 3,700 business and general aviation aircraft, and are standard on new aircraft from business jet manufacturers. In addition to medical services, MedAire offers a suite of aviation security solutions to help flight departments mitigate risks to their people, their aircraft and their operations.

The San Diego Air & Space Museum will celebrate the International Air & Space Hall of Fame Class of 2019 on Saturday, November 23, in the Edwin D. McKellar Pavilion of Flight at the San Diego Air & Space Museum.

President and CEO of the museum Jim Kidrick comments: “We're especially pleased to honour this exemplary Class of 2019 because these men and women are among the most talented figures in air and space history.”

In 2017, Garrett was awarded the NBAA Meritorious Service to Aviation Award, which recognises extraordinary lifelong professional contributions to aviation.
