The air ambulance
The Dassault Falcon 20F-5BR corporate jet has been classified as one of the most successful corporate jets in the world.
The Falcon jet is built for comfort, speed and durability. It has a range of 4 080 kilometres or 2 200 nautical miles,
a maximum speed of 850 km/h, flying as high as 42 000 feet. This particular business jet was manufactured in the early
1980s and has been completely refurbished to perform the requirements of a modern air ambulance. The interior of the
aircraft is spacious and provides the opportunity for family members or friends to accompany the patient. The aircraft
can comfortably seat six people who are not in need of urgent medical care.
With a 2200 nautical miles range, the Dassault Falcon 20F-5BR can service a wide international market, including the
majority of the African continent. Each case is unique and it depends on the needs of each patient as to where he or
she will be transported. If patients require a higher level of care, they will be flown back to South Africa, or in
certain instances, can be repatriated to Europe or the Middle East and even the USA if need be, depending on the
requirements of the medical insurer and the level of medical care required.
