CareFlight owns and operates specially configured Beechjet 400s.
The jets are used to transport critically ill and injured patients over vast distances to specialist treatment centers across Australia and internationally.
Extensive modifications undertaken by CareFlight’s qualified engineers included installing medical stretchers, special flooring and the electrical components needed to turn the cabin into a state-of-the-art airborne hospital.
These ‘flying hospitals’, fitted with fully-equipped intensive care units, are crewed by specialist doctors and nurses.
In addition to a large proportion of CareFlight’s caseload of patient transfers within Australia, the medi-jets also regularly undertake missions to and from the Indonesian Archipelago, the South-Western Pacific and South-East Asia.
Integrated management and control of our jet fleet allows us to optimize crew rostering and maintenance scheduling. This means better aircraft availability, the fundamental requirement for getting our medical teams airborne and on the way to our patients in the shortest possible time.
