Air Ambulance 1
Air Ambulance 1 makes it simple for our customers to experience efficient, safe medical flight transportation both domestically and abroad.
Our highly trained team is the leading flight ambulance crew in the world, serving over 200,000 patients in the past 15 years.
It’s no wonder why we’re trusted as the industry leader when it comes to one of the best air ambulance services in the world.
Each part of our medical team, Flight Coordinators, and Pilots play a vital role in the process of domestic and international medical flight transfers.
That’s why Air Ambulance 1 requires only the most experienced applicants and puts them through rigorous training to ensure we’re meeting and exceeding industry standards for our patients.
Air Ambulance 1 Medical Teams are one of the most advanced and expertly trained medical teams in the healthcare and medical flight industry. Our teams are required to follow the strict guidelines of our Medical Director Joe Ybarra, in addition to extensive training during their onboarding process (and annually, thereafter.)
All Air Ambulance 1 medical personnel are required to train specifically on each plane we operate and all are required to have proven experience in the air ambulance industry. Each one of our planes is equipped with the supplies necessary for our healthcare professionals to care for patients in even the most critical of conditions.
All medical teams are also required to attend many hours of continuing education courses annually in order to maintain their medical licenses. Our procedure is to send our most experienced critical care personnel along with the new trainee to provide the best training and supervision possible.
Basic Life Support, Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Pediatric Advanced Life Support, and Cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Each of our nurses and paramedics holds additional credentials in conjunction with their medical titles, including Certified Flight Registered Nurse or Flight Paramedic certification.
Most of our medical teams have a background in emergency and critical care. Because we’re equipped to have an “ICU in the sky,” it’s vital that each one of the team members on our flight crews is only the best and most highly trained in the field.
In order to be able to control so many aspects of one patient’s medical transport, our Flight Coordinators train on new policies and procedures monthly. Through the guidance of the company’s Chief Officer, Flight Coordinators receive updated information frequently, so they are able to organize and control complete operations of the patient’s transport without any issues.
As Flight Coordinators, these team members oversee much of the logistical process of your entire air ambulance domestic or international trip. They also coordinate any necessary flight changes, layovers, ground crew transportation, or patient transfers that occur at or within the airport. If you need someone or something to be arranged or transported, the Flight Coordinator will be sure that it happens. We have over 100 fleet aircraft worldwide, and it’s our coordinator’s responsibility to ensure our medical flights are planned in the most efficient route possible.
Each month the Management Team reviews all patient’s transport records and alerts the Flight Coordinators of any potential issues that may arise. That way our team can improve on a progressive basis and enhance the quality of services that we provide.
Need room for friends on the plane with the patient? Have a pet who needs to be transported? Are you coordinating care for a VIP client such as a government official? Our Flight Coordinator does it all. Even if you need a limo waiting for you at the airport, or someone to accompany you on a commercial flight, it can be done.
The Flight Coordinator is required to prove his abilities to multi-task and understand the patient’s needs at any time. Due to the fact that this is the key part of the air ambulance process, the Flight Coordinators continually receive supporting information, updates, and assistance from the company’s CEO.
A U.S based pilot needs to go through extensive flight training before he/she is allowed to fly on an air ambulance plane with any medical flight company, including Air Ambulance 1.

But being a pilot isn’t all, our medical flight professionals also have a passion for the unique needs and concerns involved when transporting critical care patients, burn victims, young children, and even VIP clientele.
The pilots on our team have experience in flying commercial planes for many years, as well as going through special training specific to air ambulance flight operations. Because Air Ambulance 1 has over 100 fleet aircraft positioned around the world, it’s vital that our pilots have extensive training on flying multiple aircraft.
