Our aircraft are used for Primary Care, Advanced Care, and Specialty Team transports (CHEO, NICU, ECMO, etc). Our Metro aircraft are among the largest and most capable Air Ambulance platforms in the provincial system and are able to provide bariatric and true team transport capabilities. SkyCare also utilizes a Westwind Jet medevac platform that has best-in-class range, allowing for non-stop transcontinental flights, which makes it a great tool for long haul transfers.
