Medical Rescue Air Ambulance is an established and experienced air ambulance service. We know what we are doing and we will get you home.

Medical Rescue personnel are all Australian registered emergency doctors and intensive care nurses. Our flights are coordinated by an experienced aviation and clinical operations team and all missions are overseen by Specialist retrieval doctors who hold fellowship with the Australasian College of Emergency Medicine to ensure our patients are in safe hands.

Medical Rescue uses an array of mid and long range aircraft based in Singapore, Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sydney. The Aircraft are all registered with the Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority and are fitted with our patented aeromedical stretchers and loading systems designed and manufactured by Aeromedical Engineering Pty Ltd, part of the Medical Rescue Group.
