Air Link Unveils Regional Fixed Wing Response
December 12, 2018
Air Link and Regional West recently announced a new option to their air ambulance fleet.
The organization now has the option of a Pilatus PC 12 jet. Regional West now has the option of dispatching a medical helicopter or the new plane.
Air Link Medical Director Dr. Peter Meyer said the company has been pursuing a fixed-wing response option for several years. He said in 1995, Dr. Lloyd Westbrook made Regional West a trauma center. Transportation was the key part of the program, according to Dr. Meyer. He said Regional West started pursuing a plane as part of its response fleet in 2010.
