AirCARE1 International adds fourth plane

US-based fixed-wing air ambulance provider AirCARE1 International has announced the addition of a fourth plane to its fleet of air ambulance aircraft. A newly acquired Learjet 36A joins an existing fleet of three Learjet 35A aircraft all owned and operated by AirCARE1. The new plane will perform medical transportation flights throughout North America, South America and Central America, said the firm, with abilities to perform worldwide operations to Europe, Asia and the South Pacific coming in the near future.

Compared the 35As, the latest addition provides a number of benefits that the company said will allow it to better service our patients both domestically and internationally. For example, the 36A boasts a flight duration of five hours compared to the 35As’ four, reducing the number of fuel stops needed on long-range missions, and enabling it to reach Hawaii. Being able to fly at altitudes of 43,000 to 45,000 ft will make for smoother flights with less turbulence, said AirCARE1.
