A ground medical transport crew and critical care med team can include paramedics and nurses who have medical flight training. Crews often consist of flight nurses and flight paramedics that are sometimes also respiratory therapists -- but not flight surgeons or certified air medical examiners that work medical transport crew. Air charter, air leasing or charter services do not always include ground ambulance service or ground transportation service. Medical care for transportation, sometimes covered by insurance, is inside an aircraft such as a lear jet or king air. Flights that are international ambulances by air, particularly to and from Mexico, use the terms evacuation and repatriation in reference to flights sometimes flown on air medical aircrafts. For years, both the ambulance and the medical team have been referred to as air med in the aeromedical industry.
We generally do not arrange helicopter service. Flight escort service usually refers to a critical care trained medical staff member usually with years of experience that accompanies a patient in a scheduled commercial aircraft.

In the air ambulance indistry, each base is sometimes referred to as a lifeport and each medflight can be eqipped with advanced aeromedical(usually referring to ACLS equipment onboard an air ambulance). Resources and references to air ambulance services include the handbook, which explains the nature of air medical flight missions.
