First all female medical helicopter crew in Spain
INAER Spain has formed the country’s first all female medical emergency helicopter crew.
The Malpartida medical base in Cácares, operated by INAER Spain is now the home of Spain’s first all-woman medical helicopter crew. The crew is made up of pilot Beatriz Parera, medics Gloria Palacios and Salobrar Sánchez and Rocio Ramos from the Extramadura Health Service, and uses a Eurocopter EC135.
“The gender of the crew doesn’t matter; what matters is the way the crew and the health professionals work together to ensure successful missions, like those we’ve seen over the past few days,” said pilot Beatrix Parera of INAER.
INAER is part of the Avincis Group and operates 27 medical aircraft in Spain. In 2012 the company completed 8,228 medical emergency missions and treated 6,658 patients.
