Flight Crews

Thousands of Flight Hours

Every REVA pilot has thousands of hours of flight experience and is an air ambulance veteran. Pilots go through extensive training on an annual basis and receive ongoing training every six months. Prior to every medical flight, pilots participate in a risk assessment analysis in order to be prepared for any potential challenges that may arise. Just like the Scouts say – always be prepared. We are accident free and have a spotless safety record.

All pilots are skilled in assisting air medical crews, they exceed FAA Part 135 training requirements, and each pilot in command holds an Airline Transport License. Our Lear Jet Captains have logged at least 5000 flight hours and our turboprop Captains have at least 2000 multi-engine flight hours.

REVA'S AIRCRAFT

SHORT RANGE, LONG RANGE, AND INTERNATIONAL

REVA’s fleet is comprised of 10 aircraft including 7 learjets. These fixed-winged, medically equipped aircraft are capable of short range, as well as long-range and international flights.

Each plane is custom configured to transport both emergency and non-emergency patients.

Air ambulance service comes into consideration when distance, speed and patient condition are beyond the capabilities of a ground ambulance. Our aircraft are configured and staffed to resemble a self-contained critical care unit.

The Learjet 35 is the leading aircraft in the air medical transport arena and is renowned for its safety and performance. REVA holds a $100 million umbrella casualty insurance coverage for its customers.

AIRCRAFT MAINTENANCE

EXCEEDING INDUSTRY STANDARDS

 

We take the business of air medical transportation very seriously. Every aircraft is accredited by EURAMI (industry governing body) as exceeding the standard level of safety in our industry for professional medical transport.

That means you and your loved one will fly on meticulously maintained aircraft that is continually evaluated, upgraded and inspected for safety compliance.

The safety of patients during air medical transportation, as well as our flight crew, is paramount and we will always take every step necessary to ensure the safety of both.
