Fox Flight Air Ambulance, a Canadian company specializing in international medical repatriation, was recently the subject of an “Operator Profile” in SKIES magazine, the premier publication serving the Canadian aviation industry. The seven-page feature article, which appears in the April/May issue, is an in-depth look at the company’s history, business philosophy and dedication to patient care.
“After almost 25 years in the international medical repatriation business, it is really gratifying for our entire team to be recognized in this way by a respected industry publication like SKIES,” said Fox Flight president David Fox. “We have subscribed to SKIES at our office for years, so we look forward to seeing each issue of the magazine and we appreciate the coverage of the industry they provide. To actually see our own company featured in the magazine is really a thrill for everybody.”
“At SKIES, we are always on the lookout for stories about Canadian aviation companies that are making a difference,” said Lisa Gordon, editor-in-chief of SKIES. “When we visited Fox Flight, their team approach toward delivering top-notch patient care was evident. We were impressed that a relatively small operator offers so much in-house capacity.”
“We tend to think of ourselves as a healthcare company first, because our focus is transporting sick and injured individuals and we employ doctors, nurses and respiratory therapists to do that,” added Fox. “But we fly our fleet of air ambulances around the world to pick up patients, so we employ pilots and aircraft maintenance technicians as well, just like any other aviation company. You could call us a healthcare company with planes, and I think the SKIES article captures that.”
