Helicopter Emergency Medical Services – Air Ambulance
International Helicopter Solutions has a team of civilian, ex-military and para-public professionals committed to delivering safe, effective and affordable Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS) solutions, that meet and exceed the high expectations and demands of our clients who range from Commercial operators, Para-public Operators, Governments and the Military …. over the last 25 years. Every client has unique HEMS capability requirements and we work to local National Aviation Authority (NAA) guidelines. Where local regulations do not cover the HEMS requirements, we will default to EASA guidelines; and we will work closely with the local NAA to achieve their goals.
HEMS are more readily known as the Air Ambulance (AA) – usually there are two distinct operating models:
- As a replacement/support for a ground-based ambulance service with one, usually two para medics on board.
- Where the crew includes a trauma qualified doctor as part of the medical crew, capable of performing complex trauma procedures at the patients’ side.
