Life Flight Network beats other medical air services in receiving two distinguished safety accreditations from the Helicopter Association International and the International Business Aviation Council. The HAI awarded Life Flight Network with the Accreditation Program of Safety (HAI-APS) certificate for its helicopter air ambulance operations. At the same time, the IBAC also awarded the service with the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operators accreditation (IS-BAO).

About the accreditations

A voluntary safety program, the HAI-APS aids helicopter operators in establishing and maintaining a safety culture in order to reduce accidents and incident rates. Becoming an accredited operator under this program requires operators to demonstrate their compliance with international safety standards. Additionally, they need to display a high level of professionalism in carrying out their helicopter operations.

An international non-governmental association, IBAC represents business aviation community while promoting and protecting their interests in an international stage. The association introduced the IS-BAO accreditation to fulfill the need of the business aviation community to maintain a standardized operating procedure. With this accreditation, the association aims to cultivate a safe and highly professional practice in aircraft operations throughout the world.
