Who We Are

Bismarck Air Medical has been providing skilled and safe air medical transports for more than 15 years, and has now expanded our services to include On Demand Charter.

Our pilots complete flight proficiency checks every 6 months and are held to the same standard as any captain flying for an airline.

Our maintenance and ground support services are provided by Bismarck Aero Center.  Their factory-trained technicians maintain our aircraft to standards that meet or exceed the requirements of the Federal Aviation Administration and the aircraft manufacturers

 

 

ON DEMAND AIR CHARTER SERVICES

For your comfort and safety our aircraft:

·Have pressurized cabins. This allows us to fly at higher altitudes, for smoother rides, while keeping the cabin altitude at a comfortable level.  This system also has more efficient heating and cooling which provides comfortable cabin temperatures, no matter the season.

·Have turbine-powered engines. Turbine engines produce more power and are more reliable than piston-powered engines.

·Have updated avionics which provide our pilots with unmatched situational awareness, inflight weather, and the ability to conduct precision instrument approaches to smaller airports.

Have no expense spared on maintenance and work to exceed the requirements of the FAA and aircraft manufacturer by identifying and replacing parts well before it is required.

 

Your Time is Valuable

We understand it is difficult to justify the cost of charter. But a charter can turn a 7-hour drive for a 3-hour meeting into a morning in the office, a 3-hour meeting in the afternoon, and a supper at home with family or friends.

We fly where there is no commercial airline service

There are 3,306 general aviation airports in the United States, of which only 376 have airline service. Chances are the community you need to visit has an airport. This is also true of the suburbs of large metropolitan areas.

Make your travel schedule convenient

A charter will leave your schedule and arrive at an airport with an easy commute to your destination

Your charter will depart at a time that allows yo u to arrive at your meeting or event with time to spare and will return you home as quickly as you can make it back to the airport.
