Aviation/Pilot Capabilities

In addition, our trained pilots receive annual training and biannual PIC checks or annual SIC checks and must pass a detailed physical examination.

Safety is our priority. Our pilots are:

  1. FAA approved through FAA check rides.
  2. Certified by the U.S. Department of Transportation as medically fit.
  3. Trained in specific aircraft type and model annually.
  4. Instrument, commercial, and multi-engine rated.
  5. Trained in all meteorological conditions and high proficiency.

Guardian Flight operates 23 air medical aircraft, each of which is dedicated to air ambulance transportation. Our aircraft are capable of transporting two stretcher patients, two medical attendants, and two pilots. We are also able to accommodate one family member if weight and balance allows.

We provide safe and reliable fixed-wing air medical services with a focus on serving rural communities. All aircraft are operated by AMRG, Inc.
