This year marks the 20th anniversary of the partnership of MedAire (Booth  No. 775) and Gulfstream Aerospace (Booth No. 275), through which the Phoenix-based MedAire has been providing Gulfstream operators with medical equipment, medical training and 24/7 access to MedAire’s hospital-based MedLink Global Response Center. Gulfstream includes the MedAire package with the purchase of each new Gulfstream aircraft. Crew medical training is provided by flight nurses and paramedics with aviation experience and certification by the American Heart Association or European Resuscitation Council. On-board medical supplies on all aircraft include an FAA-approved Part 135 first-aid kit designed to handle most common in-flight medical emergencies. On the G350, G450, G500 and G550, the kit includes an automated external defibrillator.
