FlyGTA moves into US air ambulance provision
FlyGTA pilots are now qualified to service an on-going air ambulance contract with Ornge following the company's acquisition of organ transplant carrier Northern Air Solutions last year.
NAS' Citations will be used by FlyGTA to service the Ornge medevac contract.

South Ontario, Canada-based FLYGTA Group has been taking steps to qualify its pilots to continue to service Northern Air Solutions’ contracts following its acquisition of the air ambulance provider in October last year. Those steps are now in place, and NAS Cessna Citations are once again continuing the contract to provide medevac services for Ornge, a non-profit charitable air ambulance organisation, as well as for NAS’ growing charter services across North America and vacation packages around the world.

FLYGTA Group is pleased to increase the service offering in its product line, and with a focus to develop new and innovative technologies for aviation, the acquisition of Northern Air Solutions allows us to venture into even more possibilities,” says CEO Chris Nowrouzi. “Our goal is to see how we can increase the efficiency of such programmes in the air medical field with IATA's new NDC capabilities, which translates in this case, directly to saving lives.”

FLYGTA Group conducts independent research on technology solutions for aviation businesses. By taking this step into the air medical field, it aims to explore the potential of new NDC (new distribution capability) options for airlines to transfer to air ambulance operations.
