    Sentara Healthcare’ Nightingale Bases Now IFR Capable


    Sentara, December 12, 2018 - Nine sites in Eastern Virginia and northeast North Carolina are fully operational for Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) landings by the Nightingale Regional Air Ambulance.

    The FAA designation creates designated air space, allowing flights in cloudy, rainy weather which had to be turned down under current Visual Flight Rules (VFR) limitations.

    IFR allows Nightingale to meet ground ambulances at designated safe sites in poor weather rather than remote scenes.

    IFR development was funded by a grant from the Sentara Foundation Hampton Roads, which included targeted gifts from donors in host communities. These gifts included $40,000 from private donors on the Eastern Shore.

    Also, Currituck County, North Carolina, appropriated $25,000 from its tourism fund to support two IFR sites at the Corolla and Carova EMS stations.

    The IFR sites include:

    - Sentara Norfolk General Hospital (Nightingale’s base)
    - Sentara Obici Hospital (Suffolk)
    - Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical Center
    - Isle of Wight County Rescue Squad (Smithfield, Virginia)
    - Campbell Field (Northampton County, Eastern Shore)
    - Sentara Albemarle Medicine Center (Elizabeth City, North Carolina)
    - Outer Banks Hospital (Nags Head, North Carolina)
    - Corolla Fire Station (Corolla, North Carolina)
    - Carova Beach Volunteer Fire & Rescue Station (Carova, North Carolina)
