FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 

McCall, ID- Individuals from Southern Oregon are involved in the ongoing search effort for a Beech Bonanza single engine airplane which went missing December 1st with five passengers aboard.

Burl J. Brim, Jr., president of Brim Aviation and Air Rescue Systems of Ashland, Oregon, responded to the search area in Idaho along with Emergency Airlift president, Edward A. Langerveld, of Klamath Falls. Brim and Langerveld piloted Air Rescue System’s helicopter to McCall, Idaho Sunday. The search area is approximately 30 miles west of McCall in mountainous terrain.

The all-volunteer crew and the donated aircraft were able to search areas of interest Monday before having to return to Oregon due to snow forecasted for the search area Monday evening. The search crew aboard the helicopter also consisted of Tim Evinger, former sheriff and founding member of the Missing Aircraft Search Team (MAST). Evinger was contacted by the missing pilot’s family Friday asking for assistance in the search. MAST worked through the weekend to provide the helicopter crew with the highest probable areas to search.

The search is hampered by snowfall that has occurred since the disappearance which is providing a white backdrop against a white airplane. Brim and Langerveld were able to take the helicopter into some difficult to reach areas and help the overall effort by eliminating these areas. Additionally, the team was able to land at an exploration outpost and interview an “ear witness” who potentially heard the plane on the day it went missing. The searchers know that being able to do a face-to-face interview with a witness and have them point at the direction they perceived the airplane to be traveling is paramount to the search effort.

The companies, individuals, and MAST remain hopeful during this difficult time for the Smith family and will continue to be involved to provide whatever support and advice they can until this search is resolved. Contact: Tim Evinger, 541-708-1765

Emergency Airlift, the local air ambulance company, announced today the launch of their two newly purchased Bolkow-BO105S helicopters. These helicopters will be dedicated solely to Emergency Medical Services work in Oregon, west of the Cascade Mountain Range. The helicopters will be the first EMS helicopters based at the Southwest Oregon Regional Airport and the Roseburg Municipal Airport. The helicopters are part of Emergency Airlift's impressive fleet of six EMS fixed wing aircraft and two long range EMS jets, servicing five air ambulance bases in Oregon, California, Nevada and the Island of Guam.

Emergency Airlift has the ability to land directly at the hospital or scene of an accident, drastically reducing patient transit time between hospitals. The helicopters are capable of transporting one patient with a critical care specialty team directly from hospital to hospital.

"It is exciting to add these helicopters to our growing fleet. We now have a wide range of equipment which allows us to choose the best suited aircraft for the job," stated Edward Langerveld/CEO & Director of Operations. “It is a crucial instrument in broadening the EMS resources greatly needed along the Oregon coast and Douglas County areas. The ability to utilize the helicopter for scene work and with our more critical patients makes all the difference because our response time to the scene or bedside is a matter of minutes ensuring the highest level of care is available without delay," stated Ed.

On July 4, 2008 from 11:00am to 3:00pm Emergency Airlift will have the helicopters on display at their North Bend, Oregon headquarters where they will be conducting a drawing for several free demonstration flights available to our Emergency Airlift members. Non-members can sign up online or on location.

Emergency Airlift begins Operating New Air ambulance base in Klamath Falls Oregon, January 26, 2009.

Last month Emergency Airlift expanded their air ambulance operations to include Klamath Falls, Oregon. Emergency Airlift is a worldwide air ambulance corporation with operations North Bend, Oregon Roseburg, Oregon, Yerington, Nevada, the island of Guam and now Klamath Falls. Emergency Airlift has a fleet of 7 fixed wind aircraft 3 Helicopter and 2 long range jets making Emergency Airlift the most versatile air ambulance company in the Pacific Northwest.

On January 26, 2009 Emergency Airlift based a helicopter along with a ground ambulance directly at the Klamath Falls Airport. Flight crew, alongside a critical care trained nurse and paramedic are standing by 24/7 providing rapid, life saving, critical care to the Klamath Falls area. Before Emergency Airlift an outside air ambulance company had to travel miles in order to respond. A locally based helicopter will not only drastically reduce response times but also provide the ability to either land directly at Skylakes Medical Center or the scene of an accident. Secondly, a local aircraft has the ability to take off in bad weather conditions when companies coming from other areas could not obtain the proper FAA clearance needed to land. In short, landing minimums are greater than take off minimums, giving Emergency Airlift the ability to obtain a clearance for a take off when a landing clearance from a company outside the area would be denied.

The helicopter is capable of transporting one patient with a critical care specialty team. Emergency Airlift's versatile fleet plays an important factor in excellent patient care and safety. As the weather deteriorates Emergency Airlift has the ability to quickly change their equipment from a helicopter to a fixed wing, all weather, day-or-night capable aircraft.

Emergency Airlift's air ambulance membership program is an annual cost of $35.00 per household. Member's service area includes the entire state of Oregon, Nevada, Washington and northern California. Membership offers a locally based air ambulance service with no out-of-pocket cost. Emergency Airlift offers Klamath Falls residents who are currently members of any other air ambulance program to replace it, free of charge, with a one year Emergency Airlift membership.

"We are very excited to be here, rapid response times and transport with the best possible clinical care is my plan for this area." Stated Edward Langerveld/CEO & Director of Operations. “Our other bases are close to Klamath Falls and they will help support each other's needs, giving us the flexibility and strength needed to respond to almost any critical situation this area may have.” Stated Ed.
