When you call Air Ambulance Worldwide, our dedicated team of medical flight experts will help find the most efficient and cost-effective aircraft for your needs.

WHAT IS A MEDICAL JET?
A medical jet is a private jet that has been outfitted with specific equipment that allows it to operate as a flying ambulance (hence many people referring to them as “air ambulances”).
With proper medical equipment and medical support personnel, medical jets can transport everyone from critically ill patients to asymptomatic COVID cases (when needed).

What Makes A Private Air Ambulance Jet Different?
A private air ambulance jet is outfitted with medical equipment that allows for safe transport of patients across the nation and the world. With dedicated flight staff that has been specially trained in transporting patients in the air, each private medical flight is one of the safest ways to transport patients long-distance.
These planes, while private jets, require extra space for medical equipment and medical specialists, so the number of passengers that can accompany each patient depends on the individual patient needs.
If desired, these jets can be reconfigured easily for a pure charter flight as a private jet.

HOW FAR CAN MEDICAL AIR AMBULANCES FLY?
Depending on the aircraft, medical jets have variable ranges. Some specialize in regional transfers and can go 1,000 miles or more, whereas others are long-range jets that can go up to 3,500 miles.
If a medical flight distance exceeds the aircraft’s capacity, quick refueling stops can be scheduled along the way, greatly increasing the overall flight range of the aircraft.
