The CareFlite fixed wing crew includes:
  • An experienced pilot with an Airline Transport Pilot certificate (the highest US rating)
  • A CFRN (certified flight registered nurse) with a minimum of five years critical care and/or emergency nursing experience and/or
  • A FP-C (flight paramedic-certified) with at least four years of progressive 911 experience
  • The configuration of the medical crew may change based on the condition of the patient .
  • Specialty Team Flights including neonates are also available in the King Air.

The large cabin aircraft can transport one adult or one isolette (neonate) patient. The aircraft is also ideal for transplant teams and rapid delivery of organs. The King Air is pressurized making it able to fly at higher altitudes and great speed. The King Air is IFR certified, able to operate during inclement weather.

King Airs are among the most widely accepted fixed wing aircraft used for air ambulance services. CareFlite’s twin engine aircraft is based at the Grand Prairie Airport and can pick up or deliver patients to any facility in the Metroplex. Other airports in the Metroplex may be used to shorten patient transport times. Other aircraft operated by other air carriers with a CareFlite Air Medical Crew may be substituted as operationally necessary.
