Air Ambulance and Air Ambulance Handling
Woodgate Aviation have more than 20 years experience operating air ambulances and providing air ambulance handling at Belfast International Airport (EGAA). We have refined our knowledge to ensure each case is dealt with appropriately.
For our Medi-Vac Service, we utilise two Beech Kingair 200’s from our base at Belfast International Airport which are equipped with a full Lifeport System. The Kingair is pressurised and can fly at up to 35,000ft providing a safe and comfortable environment for the patient and medical crew. The aircraft can accommodate a patient and up to 4 passengers (medical team and/or relatives) depending on the clinical needs.
All our Air Ambulance Transfers are carried out using fully trained crew members. There is at least 1 of our medics on board to ensure the safety of the patient at all times. We are able to respond to any emergency request within approximately 1 hour and are available 24/7.
We have access to our own medical teams that are specifically qualified in Air Ambulance operations. Medical experience varies from Nurses to Anaesthetists. This allows us to assess each patient and supply the correct medical team for the transfer. All cases can be handled from infants upwards, including Intensive Care Patients.
Live Organ & Surgical Team Transfers and Air Ambulance Private Medical Repatriations
We currently work closely with the NHS to provide Air Ambulance transfers. We also provide a full service to private individuals as required, including aircraft and crew, lifeport facility, road ambulances, UK and European medical/insurance repatriation, transplant and surgical team transport flights.
This service is particularly useful to individuals wishing to transfer friends/relatives. Depending on location, we have the ability to supply hangarage during transfer from the aircraft to the ambulance in order to protect from weather elements.
