Government / Medical Air

The Autogyro is well suited for Medical Air tasking. Its long endurance and ability to fly low and slow, its safety profile and easy handling characteristics combined with the low investment and operating costs and its low CO2 and noise footprint make it a perfect aircraft for various Medical Air operations.

Medical services are either a Government task, a task performed by the private sector or a combination of the two. The main aircraft for this is the helicopter (HEMS). In large area’s with space for take off and landing and where bringing a higher level of medical care is the first priority and not the carrying of the sick or wounded passenger, the Autogyro can be an alternative. 

Autogyro EMS can be just as effective in some circumstances and the lower procurement and operating costs and the easier training and operating of the Autogyro can be an advantage. The Medic can fly himself.

 Urban SAR (looking for survivors after a mayor dissaster) can also benefit from the support of an Autogyro with the right sensors to locate survivors. The fact that the Autogyro can be boxed for Airfreight and assembled in a short periode of time are mayor allow for swift responce and resue of lives.
