International Air Ambulance Alliance (IAAA)

Aeromedevac is a founding member of the IAAA and continues to support IAAA as a catalyst for continuous improvement from within the air ambulance industry

IAAA is a not for profit air ambulance industry organization that establishes standards of operations for long distance air ambulance service, known as fixed wing air ambulance. Helicopter ambulance service is known as rotary wing air ambulance service and is for short distance flights.

Although membership in IAAA is voluntary, members must abide by the organization's standards. Several international travel insurance and travel assistance companies have joined IAAA as Associate Members, because the companies recognize the benefits of IAAA. Travel insurance and travel assistance companies are major buyers of air ambulance services. IAAA air ambulance members, by adhering to the IAAA standards, demonstrate to travel insurance and travel assistance companies a commitment to medical and aviation operations standards.

If you are a hospital or third party case manager, a family member or friend of a patient, representing a corporation, or an attorney representing a patient client, knowing that Aeromedevac is a member if the IAAA is one of several measures of our credibility.
