CareFlight to appear at Vectren Dayton Air Show


Air medical operator CareFlight of Ohio, US, will be performing at the Vectren Dayton Air Show on the weekend of 22 June, with up to three aircraft flying as an act. Mandy Via, flight nurse and outreach co-ordinator, said it was an ‘exciting’ opportunity, as it’s rare to see more than one Dauphin helicopter together at the same time. The plan is to have the helicopters fly in a ship formation, which will form part of the celebrations that mark its 35th anniversary of operations. Via added: “People associate [the helicopter] with critical patients, but what most people may not realize when you see that helicopter fly over the highway is that patient is going to the highest level of care. A majority of people have some sort of connectivity to CareFlight; Whether it's they've been a patient, a family member, friend, and so there is a connectivity of the heart with this program.”
