Medevac operations in order to provide emergency medical assistance are one of the most challenging types of aerial works.
Medical air evacuation means flight operations in order to take the casualties to hospitals, and also transportation of patients from the remote hospitals to the better equipped medical centers.
The strict requirements are imposed to the airlines rendering similar services for employees’ qualification, organization and interaction of all the Company services. The reason for this is that most often there is not a moment to lose. Medevac operations are carried out, as a rule, being on duty, sometimes this duty is round-the-clock.
Nowadays PANH Helicopters participates at once in several long-term projects on medical air evacuation.
The administration of Krasnodar region has trusted PANH Helicopters to operate EC-135 helicopter. Helicopter crews take patients from all districts of the region to Professor S. V. Ochapovskiy Regional Clinical Hospital No. 1. The emergency medical air service project has demonstrated so high efficiency that there is considered the possibility of this program extension and application of Krasnodar region experience to other Russia’s regions.
PANH Helicopters own aircraft (EC-135, Ka-32) are also on duty in order to evacuate casualties and to remedy the consequences of emergencies on sea-craft and drilling platforms in the Astrakhan region and the Republic of Kazakhstan.
