Veteran Pilots

Our pilots must pass a demanding selection process and training program before they can fly for us. All pilots are highly experienced with diverse backgrounds, including medical, military and commercial aviation.

Experience in the Air

Our pilots have amassed more than 200,000 combined flight hours of experience. Before every medical flight, pilots participate in a risk- assessment analysis in order to be prepared for potential challenges that may arise.

Rigorous Training

Our pilots are required to follow a training regimen that exceeds Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) standards. Countless hours a month are set aside for training that includes textbooks, electronic educational materials, FAA updates and hands-on simulator practice.

We Have the Range — Global Medical Air Transport Services

Expert medical providers are available 24/7 through our worldwide alliance network to provide broad availability to any country. We have several aircraft types distributed across the globe, ready for your assistance where and when you need us.

REVA's Track Record

REVA's fleet of 16 dedicated aircraft is capable of short-range, long-range domestic and international flights. Our highly trained team of over 350 air-ambulance professionals upholds educational standards higher than the industry requirements. Meanwhile, our global alliance with 27 audited industry partners and our four strategically located bases in North America, the Caribbean and Europe have given us a broad availability all across the globe.

As of 2021, REVA has completed over 30,000 flights in 70 countries — but our reach is worldwide.

Our Global Coverage

REVA's reach is worldwide. Our 16 dedicated fixed-wing aircraft, four bases of operation and global alliance program enable us to provide convenient departure points to even the most distant locations. Our expert management team can quickly coordinate a safe, reliable patient transfer to any country.

Europe

We provide extensive international medical flight services that cover all 44 European countries. With one base in Ireland and several global alliance partners throughout the region, REVA is among the top providers for medical flight transport within Europe and from Europe to the United States.

When a patient needs emergency treatment unavailable in their region, an air ambulance will transport them to the closest European or U.S. facility that can provide adequate care. Many international air ambulance companies also offer medical escort services for patients who need to return home after critical care or travel for extended treatment in another country, and REVA is no exception.

South America

REVA's extensive global alliance network enables our 16 dedicated aircraft to cover the entire South American region using over a dozen strategic hubs for fast response and transportation times. 

We provide emergency international medical flights to all 12 South American countries for immediate evacuation. REVA can transport critical-care South American patients to the nearest facility that can administer treatment. Our air ambulance services also provide patient repatriation for safe travel home or to a separate facility after immediate care.

Central America

Air ambulances frequently serve Central America due to its many isolated and rural areas. At REVA, we have logged missions to all seven Central American countries, from Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama.

Our fleet of 16 aircraft can transport patients in Central America who require immediate medical evacuation to the nearest equipped facility — which could include flights to a U.S. facility with specialized equipment or medical professionals who can provide treatment. We also offer medical escorts to and from Central American countries, helpful for returning home or traveling to a separate facility for additional treatment.

Caribbean

At REVA, we're well-equipped to handle medical transport throughout North America. Whether you break your leg on a Canadian ski trip or get sick on vacation in Mexico, we understand the importance of getting back home fast and safely.

We can even ensure access to air ambulance services from the Caribbean to the U.S. in case of emergency during a trip abroad. Our international medical evacuation and repatriation services cover remote workers stationed in any of the 13 Caribbean countries.

Africa

When a local doctor cannot provide appropriate care, an air ambulance will transfer the patient to another African facility or a hospital in the U.S. capable of providing adequate treatment for the injury or illness. We have medical teams ready to cover evacuation and repatriation services to all 48 African countries. REVA can offer each patient quicker responses and transportation times with several global alliance hubs throughout the African region.

TRAVIS WERTH

DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS

Travis’ association with REVA began in the late 1990s, when the company he worked for, Cirrus Air, provided aircraft to Aero Jet, REVA’s predecessor. He started flying directly for Aero Jet in 2002 and became Chief Pilot in 2003. He has been with REVA since its inception in 2012 and in 2021 became REVA’s Director of Operations.

International Transport Options

The available options for international medical transport generally include air ambulance, medical escorts and private charter.

Air Ambulance

International air ambulance services provide patients with custom-configured aircraft for global medical transport. Typically, using an air ambulance for medical evacuations is the fastest way to transport a patient from one locale to another. REVA handles every detail of the patient's transfer, including ground transport at the departure and arrival sites.

Before transport, the medical team will visit and assess a patient. A customer service representative at our 24/7 communications center will arrange an ambulance to take the patient and passengers to the air ambulance. For international flights, customs and immigration will meet the patient at the private airport terminal to ensure a timely departure to the destination.

Medical Escort

Flight nurses and medical escort services usually provide care to patients who require medical assistance during transport but do not need a complete air ambulance service. Most times, medical escorts cover cases of patient repatriation, which is when a client requires extended treatment at a separate facility or transport home after emergency care.

When you use REVA's medical escort service, we will schedule all your commercial airline flights and ground transportation for you. Our flight nurse will perform continuous patient care and monitoring throughout the transport, including wheelchair transport by van and through the airport. Once on the aircraft, a patient can feel comfortable in first- or business-class seating with a nurse prepared to offer the specific care they need when in the air.

Private Charter

For passengers who want impressive performance, exceptional comfort and privacy throughout the entire trip, REVA's Learjet charter flights will help you reach your destination faster while ensuring your safety and comfort throughout the journey. Our executive configured Learjet 45XR is available for all types of passengers, whether you're traveling for business or pleasure. However, many clients requiring medical assistance during transport can also benefit from traveling in one of our premier private charters.

In addition to its typical aircraft amenities, the Learjet 45XR includes advanced medical equipment capabilities such as four built-in spectrum stretchers and an onboard oxygen capacity of M tank 2000 psi. Passengers can request a flight nurse to attend them during the trip or have the aircraft equipped with up to four medical personnel. And like any other REVA service, we'll arrange all the medical care and passenger transport details for you.

Our executive configured Learjet 45XR can travel up to 2,100 miles with a global reach and a cruising speed of 500 mph. The spacious cabin provides comfort and privacy for up to four additional passengers depending on a patient's needs. When you charter one of REVA's Learjet private flights, you can rest easy knowing we use the most trusted technology and techniques. The Learjet 45XR features a traffic alert and collision avoidance system, while REVA's pilots must undergo routine training to exceed the rigorous industry standards.
