SkyAngels Air Ambulance, a UK-based provider of emergency medical transport services, has announced its partnership with PAL-V, a flying car manufacturer, to support the company’s emergency response needs.
“The charity recognizes the need for fast and reliable transport solutions to quickly get doctors to hospitals nationwide,” according to a PAL V press release. “With the PAL-V Liberty, SkyAngels can ensure that their fast response teams arrive on the scene quickly and safely, thanks to its unique ability to utilize both road and air.
David Polo Marks, CEO/Airboss of SkyAngels, said, “Range, payload, and practicality are key factors when considering a flying car for our air ambulance service. The PAL-V Liberty is not just an aircraft, and neither is it just a car – it’s both. The fact that the aircraft can drive on roads means that it is not restricted by weather conditions and it’s a car that can fly which doesn’t need roads makes it an ideal solution for our emergency response needs, especially in areas where ground infrastructure is limited. We are thrilled to have PAL-V as our partner and look forward to utilizing their unique technology in our operations.”
The PAL-V Liberty will operate as one of SkyAngels’ fast response vehicles, with advanced paramedics and doctors able to utilize its abilities to get to the scene faster and more efficiently. The partnership represents the first of a potential bigger order for the UK, with SkyAngels investing in the future of emergency response with the PAL-V flying car.
According to the press statement: “The PAL-V Liberty can be used on short flights over natural obstacles, such as flying to the Isle of Wright or the Isle of Man. But can also be used as quick transfer cross country, independent from the major highways and the congestion.”
Robert Dingemanse, CEO of PAL-V, said, “The reservation of SkyAngels shows their trust in our product, and we look forward to further developing this partnership to make emergency response better. SkyAngels Air ambulance has a unique use case for the Liberty, which also helps us to develop the business and governmental markets. Besides emergency response, it is also a tool which can be used for coast guarding, border patrol, policing and many more applications.”
