Flight Safety

Operating around the aircraft


Safety is the highest priority at Hospital Wing. Our goal is to exceed the accepted best practices for the industry, to be predictive in our approach to safety, and to include our communities and first responders when developing safety training. All Hospital Wing aircraft are equipped with autopilot, traffic and terrain avoidance systems, satellite tracking, and weather radar. Our crews use night vision goggles,they are highly trained in Aeromedical Resource Management (AMRM), and understand the value of a Just Culture. Hospital Wing has developed its own Safety Management System and each employee has ownership of the safety of the organization. Hospital Wing has an extensive training program for both pilots and medical crew members utilizing aircraft and simulators, allowing them to experience scenario based training in a planned environment. This allows us to have the best trained, most safety conscious crews ready to serve our customers. Please download and print our. Helicopter Safety and Operations Awareness poster. It has a wealth of information on how Hospital Wing operates, how we ensure safety, and where our bases are located. If you would like a printed copy, email your request to ebratton@hospitalwing.com. We regularly conduct landing zone and helipad based safety classes for customers in our service area. If you would like to set up a class for your organization, please email the request to ebratton@hospitalwing.com. Please include the name of the organization, the date(s) desired, a good contact name and number, and if this is to meet any annual training requirements. If the class is designed to meet CEUs by your accrediting body, we have a test available for validation. At Hospital Wing, we pursue excellence in the provision of patient care and aviation through a culture of safety. Safety is not proprietary information and is only valuable when shared.
