Medivac/Search & Rescue
Customer value is a priority here at Sunflower
Recognizing the need and issues within the areas of Primary Aero Medical Care and Evacuation – both locally and overseas Tim Joyce branched out to Search and Rescue Operations, Medical Evacuations and patient transfers.
In an attempt to address this situation, Sunflower Aviation has equipped our BN-2B Islander with the capabilities to transfer patients, medical staff and a stretcher. In addition teaming up with our sister company, Heli-Tours Fiji it has equipped our AS355 Twin Engine helicopter with an articulated medical stretcher and essential medical equipment to enable overwater patient transfers and landings on the Colonial War Memorial Hospital rooftop helipad or Lautoka Hospital Helipad. We also have the R-44 (3 passenger seats) available to transfer medical staff & equipment or seated patients at a more affordable rate.
In addition to our local medical personnel and facilities we have also teamed up with a dedicated international jet retrieval service in Australia Life Flight International that has medical staff and aircraft on 24-hour standby to provide specialist medical advice, diagnosis and a retrieval service anywhere within the Pacific Basin.
We have staff on standby 24 hours per day in the event of an emergency to assist in arranging medical assistance and / or evacuation either by helicopter or fixed wing as required.
