Air Ambulance - not in the Philippines

Air Ambulance – not in the Philippines

Final Friday we had a professional medical unexpected emergency listed here in Camiguin and wanted instantly an Air Ambulance. No problem I assumed, mainly because 8 out of 11 listed air charter organizations offer you “Air Ambulance”, “Patient Transport”, and “MedEvac”. So we contacted all these “Air Ambulance”  companies even those who fly illegally (devoid of AOC and other necessary certificates).

The end result had been dreadful!

1 Charter / MedEvac did all they could for us but experienced no airplane readily available. They termed us back next early morning. Too late.
1 business stated certainly, but wished PHP 600,000 in advance, ahead of they get off. How do you do a rapid funds transfer in the Philippines?
6 businesses had either the housemaid on the mobile phone or handed us from just one number to the other devoid of any skilled team

Conclusion:

When you live or vacation in the Philippines you need to be mindful that exterior of the Mega-Towns, you do not uncover easy healthcare support. A close friend wrote me, if you go away the big metropolitan areas and do have the guts, then get a sharp knife with you, so you can slice out your appendix your self.

Outlook:

An hour ago we acquired the details that a group is developing now a true Air Ambulance provider. They really should begin in just a few months with a King Air 90 and various helicopters. The King Air 90 is rapidly more than enough to attain  any position in the Philippines inside fewer than 2 hours.
