The Cessna Citation Jet I aircraft are manufactured by the Cessna Corporation. These aircraft were designed to meet tough airline specifications, they have a three and a half times better safety record, and are considered to be the most popular aircraft in the world for special air medical missions.
This pressurized aircraft is operated by two co-captains and can accommodate one patient, one family member, the medical team and 100 pounds of luggage. This aircraft is used for a wide variety of patient conditions, and it is ideal for those patients who are critical, unstable, ventilator dependent and/or have numerous IV medications.
Advantages include cost and its short field capabilities allow the aircraft to land at smaller airports located closer to most medical facilities (thus decreasing the ground ambulance transport times and charges). Considering these advantages, we feel the Cessna Citation Jet is one of the most superior air ambulance aircraft available today.
The trip was arranged in about 6 hours from the time I placed the first call to you until the patient was taken to the airport. It went incredibly smooth, and I am thankful for Joy's hard work in getting this together for same day transport. I have used your services to transport my own grandparents and I do not hesitate to recommend your company to any patient/family that needs air ambulance services.Healthcare Professional, Orlando, FL
