When one thinks of "air ambulance", a typical visualization is of a helicopter responding to an emergency situation. While that visual is accurate, the needs for air ambulance go far beyond an emergency response generated from a 911 call. Angel MedFlight Worldwide Air Ambulance has services that meet the needs of other types of medically required transportation.
Our flight crew members can meet the needs of a patient, no matter the severity of injury or illness. Some patients require consistent medical attention, while some may not be in a critical health situation, but yet are unable to travel on a commercial aircraft. From emergencies to final wishes, our air ambulance crew is ready to make your travel a memorable experience.
Angel MedFlight's air ambulances provide emergency transportation for critical care patients both nationally and internationally.
For those traveling out of the US, Angel MedFlight offers medical ambulatory recovery from anywhere in the world. Injury or illness can happen anywhere at any time. Once medically-fit for travel, our air ambulances can bring you home to your preferred physician or hospital for treatment.
Angel MedFlight is a partner of Travel Assurance Promise (TAP). TAP is intended for reserving medical transportation back to the destination of your choice in the event of a medical emergency. By taking becoming a member of TAP prior to your trip, coverage for repatriation or domestic recovery is guaranteed.
If time is critical for reasons other than medical emergencies, Angel MedFlight is available for final destination travel as well. Our medical crew can ensure a comfortable flight, provide the proper medication to maintain stability in condition, and assist in the transfer to the destination of a patient's choosing.

If insurance does not cover air ambulance travel, patients have requested our services for personal medical transport as well as to simply travel in comfort.
