Medical Evacuation

The Zambezi Helicopter Company works with M.A.R.S. (Medical Air Rescue Service) to provide medical evacuations and cassevacs when called upon in emergency situations in the outlying areas of Victoria Falls. This includes landing in the Batoka Gorge and Zambezi National Park to attend to accidents and to ferry injured persons to medical facilities in Victoria Falls or Hwange (100km) if needed.This requires us to be constantly training with the M.A.R.S. staff in the injured person loading and unloading procedures and helicopter safety in approach and exit from a working helicopter. Should your flight be disrupted due to a medical emergency, your flight will be re-scheduled. If this is not possible you will get a full refund on any payments made.

It is rugged and reliable and it comes with the best safety record of any helicopter in the industry. This is the most popular turbine helicopter ever built.
