HOW WE STARTED
Originally, Classic was known locally only as Classic Tour Helicopters. It provided scenic flights for paying customers over Bryce Canyon. Knowing of the chartered resource in the area, the National Park Service would often call for air transport service from Lake Powell when an individual’s injuries and/or location warranted a more efficient method of extraction than the standard boat and ambulance.
On Memorial Day in 1988 Classic Air Medical officially began with one helicopter, a pilot and a medical crew of two basic level Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT). In the beginning, Classic Air Medical started as a seasonal service to assist the National Park Service in transporting the ill and injured from Lake Powell to capable medical facilities. We have developed extensively since the beginning and we will continue to progress and improve along with this rapidly evolving industry.
Classic Air Medical was created in response to the need for air medical evacuation services. A helicopter was dedicated to the operation and the specialized flight crew recruited. The base of operation was moved closer to Lake Powell and from there the program developed.For over 30 years, Classic Air Medical has been filling needs for emergency air medical transport services to emergency rooms and hospitals. We have built a reputation of excellence and safety in providing emergency and inter-facility transport services.
