Meet The Team

On-Island in the USVI, with dedicated aircraft and our own flight crews providing life-saving care to those in need throughout the Caribbean, 24/7

ABOUT US

 

Through the composition, training, and expert capabilities of our medical flight teams coupled with the state-of-the-art advanced medical equipment on-board, AeroMD is able to provide in-air intensive critical care.

With dedicated on-island medically equipped aircraft, and our own highly experienced Flight Medical Teams, AeroMD provides high-acuity Critical Care services to patients needing Air Medical Transport to off-island medical facilities with rapid response times, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.

AeroMD maintains aircraft, flight crew, and medical teams on rotating stand-by duty 24-hours-a-day, every day of the year to ensure that life-saving care can reach the patient within hours, not days of an illness.

Selection

Our medical flight teams consist of a Flight Critical Care Registered Nurse and a Flight Respiratory Practitioner with real-time access to Board Certified physicians, ensuring world-class care for patients in life-threatening situations.

Each team member comes to AeroMD with several years of critical care experience and must endure a rigorous selection process. Before consideration for a position on our team, every prospective candidate undergoes a multi-day selection course which includes a written assessment, scenario-based testing, and a procedural skills assessment.

Even after selection, every flight clinician’s education continues with our own physician-directed, world class training program which incorporates in-air procedures with high-fidelity HPS Simulation Labs.

Mission Focused All Day

AeroMD training is tough and rigorous. Preparing for your mission is not something we take lightly. Our teams are full-time and dedicated – they have been given the task and the equipment to train for Your Mission – everyday.

To be successful in Aeromedical operations, safety and mission preparation serve as the primary focus of our day. Our teams continuously prepare for any mission they might encounter.

This begins with a daily team briefing early in the morning, discussing operations for the day, expected flying conditions, and any other conditions that might drive the mission.

We then check our equipment and train hard on various medical scenarios. Our in-house training mannequins and equipment complement our off site high-fidelity simulation and procedure labs. We never stop learning and preparing for any emergency, including yours. Through this rigorous training and education, we are committed to raising the expectations of air ambulance service and care.
