WakeMed Air Mobile is a twin engine EC-135 capable of transporting two patients.
The aircraft is equipped to provide the same high level of critical care en-route as WakeMed Mobile Critical Care ground transportation and on average cuts travel time in half. The three-person flight crew includes a pilot, a flight nurse and a flight paramedic.
The crew is trained to administer care to adult, pediatric and neonatal patients. WakeMed Air Mobile can be called to the scene of accident or illness by emergency services personnel and is also available for inter-facility transports.
WakeMed Air Mobile is owned and operated by Omniflight. Clinical personnel are trained and staffed by WakeMed Health & Hospitals.
