Air Ambulance Night

This week we simulate the NZ Flying Doctors Service, based out of Christchurch Airport.

For 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, the New Zealand Flying Doctor Service provides critical-care patient transfer services between specialist metropolitan hospital facilities and outlying areas, accompanied by skilled medical practitioners in the aircraft alongside patients.

  • Beechcraft King Air 200
