Advanced Air Ambulance Flights and Weather

In the wake of Superstorm Sandy, extreme weather events have been on a lot of people's minds, including those of us in the advanced air ambulance industry. During Sandy, high winds, rain, and severe flooding forced airports up and down the East Coast to shut down. Passengers were stranded as commercial airlines canceled all flights in and out of major cities like New York.

Those same weather conditions that force airlines to ground their planes also affect worldwide air ambulance flights. Sometimes, when conditions are extremely poor (as they were across the East Coast just before Halloween), air ambulance providers have to make tough decisions. While we always want to get our patients to their destination as quickly as possible so that they can get the care they need, in certain cases we simply cannot fly. Not only do we want our patient to be safe, but we also need to think about the welfare of passengers, as well as our flight crew and medical crew. While our pilots are highly trained and capable of handling a variety of weather situations while in flight, sometimes travel is just too hazardous. In those cases, we may have to make a difficult decision to delay or cancel a transport.

What happens if an air ambulance flight is delayed due to weather? Since our priority is our patients, we get started right away on arranging another transport. The exact solution will depend on the patient's location, his or her condition, and other factors. By carefully balancing those different needs, we're always able to come up with a solution that gets our patient to their destination without comprising safety.

Our expert team is constantly monitoring weather conditions so that we can know ahead of time what to expect, and, if necessary, make alternate arrangements. For example, if we can see that a major storm could make travel difficult, we'll do everything we can do schedule a transport before the weather is likely to impact the arrangements made at the arriving airport.

Solving problems that could delay a transport (like weather-related  issues) is our job. We take it seriously, and we do our best to address potential issues before patients and their families become aware of them. In many cases, we're able to take steps to address possible problems before families and patients even become aware that something is wrong. By being proactive, we help everyone involved in an air ambulance flight stay safe, while also making sure that our patients get the medical care they need.
