Med-Trans Wings Air Rescue Program Celebrates 20 Years


Med-Trans, March 31, 2015 - Deep in the heart of Tennessee, surrounded by the majestic Smoky Mountains, is the birthplace of Wings Air Rescue air medical transport services.

For the past 20 years and more than 23,000 safe transports, the citizens of the surrounding communities have counted on Wings Air Rescue to bring state of the art medicine to them in their hour of need.

Wings Air Rescue opened its doors in Johnson City, Tennessee on March 30th, 1995, utilizing a Bell L-3 Long Ranger.

Today, the program flies Bell 407’s with bases in Greeneville and Elizabethton TN, Jenkins KY and Marion VA.

Fred Buttrell, President & Chief Executive Officer of Med-Trans stated, “We congratulate our Wings Air Rescue flight programs on a significant and impressive milestone, celebrating 20 years of continued success and service in their communities. We could not be more proud as Wings Air Rescue is the epitome of an air medical flight program, leading the way and making a difference in the lives of so many.“

Wing Air Rescue staffs its helicopters with the very best pilots in the industry. The pilots must have a minimum of 2000 hours of flight time and undergo rigorous quarterly training that includes Day / Night NVG and Intervertent IMC Training. Every flight is staffed with a Paramedic and Registered Nurse with advanced certification and years of experience. The Wings Air Rescue family consists of 5 mechanics, 16 pilots, 21 paramedics and 22 registered nurses.

Wings Air Rescue has established tremendous relationships and support with many EMS, Fire and Law Enforcement agencies as well as hospitals in their respective service areas. The flight teams are committed to providing continuing education, training and outreach in the communities they serve.

Wings Air Rescue provides 24/7 emergency services 365 days a year. The teams transport patients from either scene or smaller hospitals to tertiary care facilities; trauma, medical, and pediatrics being just a few examples.

The Wings programs will continue to offer compassionate and professional air medical services that they are recognized for, well into the future. They are a part of the communities they serve, passionate for what they do, experienced and very proud. Happy 20th Anniversary Wings Air Rescue!
