On board treatment strictly adheres to valid international standards, and it is coordinated with the multilingual physicians in charge of medical decisions on the clients behalf, as well as with the hospitals and clinics involved at both ends of the transfer. If so desired, the patient’s own or the client’s physician can participate in the flight. FAI is also happy to help the client select an appropriate specialized hospital or clinic at the receiving end. An experience of almost 30 years in this field can be used for the benefit of FAI clients.

Flight Crew

Competence and experience in the cockpit.

Besides routine check flights, our pilots undergo at least once per year regular Simulator-Check-Rides, which is more than by EASA / FAA required. But it’s the only way to proof that our pilots will be able to handle any situation in a perfect manner. All our Pilots in Command must show several thousands of flight hours in their records. That’s only one of several special company regulations, what reflects that our pilots always are more experienced than actually required by the civil aviation authorities.

FAI’s pilots all have a broad knowledge of worldwide air ambulance flight services. Among the selection criteria for hiring, the pilots must be able to document an extensive experience of several years in the field of special flight services.

With destinations in more than 100 countries, including hostile areas like Iraq or Afghanistan, FAI demonstrates safe and reliable services.
