Meet our team

Our team is made up of highly trained, passionate and dedicated people. Learn about them and the diversity of their roles.

Pilots

Our pilots fly in some of the toughest weather conditions in the world. They are highly skilled, respected and capable.

In addition to all the other important details they pay mind to, they are also careful to keep their precious cargo safe and comfortable. This means things like an extra-soft landing for a spinal injury patient or flying low to avoid a cabin pressure change for someone with a brain injury.

Aviation partners Fieldair Holdings and Search And Rescue Services Ltd help supply our pilots.
