History has proven that open and frequent communication with one person managing your transport improves safety and minimizes error and that is why your team starts with a highly trained Flight Coordinator. Each coordinator has a background in critical care medicine and is extremely knowledgeable, resourceful, and experienced in coordinating complex commercial airline medical transports.
Flying Nurses International has over 30 critical care and emergency medicine registered nurses who are licensed and actively practice within the United States. Our nurses are required to maintain nursing employment in the field of emergency medicine and undergo specialized training in aviation physiology, airline logistics and aircraft safety specifically geared to our program. Based in 10 locations throughout the continental US and Hawaii, along with our international locations in England and Italy, our nurses are world travelers and many are bilingual.
