Providence Air Ambulance has partnered with Carson Air, a well-respected leader in supplying aviation services to the air ambulance industry. Under an exclusivity agreement Carson Air provides Providence Air Ambulance with medically configured jet and turboprop aircraft from both the Vancouver and Kelowna bases.
The Cessna Citation Encore jets, Beechcraft 350 and 1900D turboprops are the most modern aircraft available in Western Canada. To maintain these aircraft in top condition and ensure timely service, Carson Air has staffed maintenance facilities located in Kelowna, Vancouver, and Calgary that operate seven days a week.
All aircraft are dedicated in Medevac configuration with dual stretcher capability. Depending on the type of medical team, we can often accommodate one extra traveler or sometimes two travelling companions.
Providence maintains relationships with other aircraft providers in order to procure aircraft should it be necessary to meet specific requirements of a repatriation.
