Hawker 800XP boosts AirMed's Alabama fleet
A Hawker aircraft has joined a fleet of medically-configured Beechjets and King Airs based at AirMed's locations in San Antonio, Texas, and Las Vegas, Nevada. They will deliver bedside-to-bedside transportation for patients.
The recently-arrived Hawker is a dedicated air ambulance aircraft.

AirMed International has added a medically-configured Hawker 800XP aircraft to its Birmingham, Alabama base. The dedicated medical transport aircraft joins two other AirMed owned and operated Hawker jets based at Birmingham International airport.

“The addition of this dedicated medically equipped aircraft demonstrates our commitment to reinvesting in our airborne assets and exceptionally trained medical and aviation personnel,” says AirMed International president Denise Treadwell. “We are making these added investments so that we can continue to provide the highest quality medical care to our patients, and AirMed International members.”

The Hawker aircraft joins a fleet of medically-configured Beechjets and King Airs based at AirMed's locations in San Antonio, Texas, and Las Vegas, Nevada. The strategically located air medical bases allow AirMed to deliver bedside-to-bedside transportation for patients in the US, as well as internationally.

The aircraft, which will go into service this month, is operated by a two-pilot crew and flies with highly trained and experienced medical staff consisting of a registered nurse, respiratory therapist, and, if needed, a medical doctor. The Hawker also features a fully configured cabin for far-ranging medical transports and an onboard liquid oxygen system, which eliminates the need to replenish onboard oxygen supplies for the transport of ventilator-dependent patients.

In addition, AirMed provides timely high level point-to-point patient care for non-emergency transports by utilising a fleet of four dedicated Learjet 35/36 aircraft. AirMed's floating fleet model allows excellent flexibility for domestic missions by eliminating empty leg mileage and reducing overall flight time to reach patients on a two-hour call out.

AirMed is the preferred fixed-wing air medical transportation provider for many of the top hospitals in the United States, including the world-renowned Mayo Clinic. It is also a contracted air carrier for the US Department of Defense and has flown U.S. Presidents and heads of state. AirMed is medically equipped for virtually every critical care scenario, regardless of patient age or location throughout the world.
