West Michigan Air Care has a new, temporary aircraft as a result of our partnership with Metro Aviation, but our critical care capability hasn't changed. When you call Air Care to request patient transport, our flight nurse team works to stabilize the patient as soon as possible as we transfer them quickly to definitive care. We appreciate your patience as our flight crews learn to work in a slightly different "office." The Airbus EC-145 helicopter gives our crews a bit more room for patient care and we'll continue to perform lifesaving missions within a 75-mile primary and 200-mile secondary radius of Kalamazoo.
Rest assured, the rules of heliports and landing zones (LZ) haven't changed. Please refer to your training materials from West Michigan Air Care or visit us online to schedule an LZ class at AirCare.org/contact/event-request.
Air Care's current aircraft is temporary, but similar to our expected final aircraft, which will be painted differently. We'd like to say a special "thank-you" to our many photographer friends for sharing these awesome photos taken in recent months. Do you have a good photo or video of our aircraft? Send them to us to share with the world at AirCare.org/contact/photo-submission.
