Experience With Air Ambulance Crashes
Some air ambulance operators have had poor or spotty safety records. This is reflected in the reprimands issued by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and investigations into the safety records of air ambulance companies. A 2006 study by the NTSB determined that most air ambulance crashes were avoidable.
