AirMed International is fully accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS), the European Aero-Medical Institute (EURAMI), and the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). These strict accreditation standards ensure the utmost safety, covering every part of the AirMed operation from patient medical care to aircraft certifications.
CAMTS and EURAMI
CAMTS is the only accreditation agency to offer worldwide standards for ground, helicopter and fixed-wing medical transport systems. The voluntary review process covers every aspect of the AirMed operation from patient medical care to aircraft safety. The prestigious CAMTS accreditation is required for air ambulance companies used by the United States Department of Defense, leading international medical centers, and some travel insurance and assistance companies. EURAMI is a Stuttgart, Germany, based non-profit association of air medical professionals and operators from 27 countries in and outside Europe. The association aims to promote air rescue and to develop and harmonize quality standards and to improve patient care and safety in air medical transports. AirMed is among the very few worldwide programs to hold full accreditation from both CAMTS and EURAMI.
Department of Defense (DoD)
AirMed International has met the requirements set forth by the United States Department of Defense Commercial Airlift Review Board as part of the DoD Air Transport Program. This process consists on-site inspection by the DoD Air Carrier Survey and Analysis Office to determine AirMed International meets the DoD Commercial Air Carrier Quality and Safety Standards. Air carriers in the DoD program are audited and inspected on an ongoing basis to assure the high DoD standards are maintained.
AirMed’s air carrier certificate (MDGA382G) is for worldwide operation, and the company has received global FAA authority.
AirMed International requires that all Global Operation Center Specialists obtain their Certified Flight Communicator Certification from the International Association of Medical Transport Communication Specialists (IAMTCS). The CFC course consists of classroom training that covers topics such as flight following, navigation, map reading, aviation weather, emergency response plans procedures, stress management, public relations, and more. IAMTCS is an organization whose mission is to represent medical transport communication specialists on an international level through education, standardization, and recognition. We believe our staff obtaining their CFC certifications adds value with its focus on safety, knowledge, and professionalism.
