CSI Aviation certified for medical flights in Texas

CSI Aviation has announced its certification by the Texas Department of State Health Services to fly critical and specialty care medical flight missions in the US state.

Marc Ramthun, CSI’s vice-president of sales, commented: “We operate frequently in Texas and are excited to now provide medical flight services throughout Texas.”

CSI said it has a long history of providing aviation services to Texas; most recently its subsidiary, Seeker Aircraft, deployed its fixed-wing light observation aircraft, the Seeker SB7L-360, to Texas to aid in post-Hurricane Harvey search, surveillance and recovery efforts. The firm said it stands ready to transport critically ill or injured patients using its fleet of King Air 200 and 300 aircraft. The planes are equipped with Spectrum Aeromed systems and all flights are crewed by accredited medical personnel specifically trained in patient care and aircraft safety, said CSI.
