Learjet 45 – Fixed Wing Air Ambulance

Capital operates three Learjet 45s. This mid-sized jet has a high speed cruise of over 500 mph and a range of over 2,000 miles. The larger cabin of our Learjet medical aircraft gives it a distinct advantage over smaller jets, allowing us to accommodate the patient's family or travelling companion and luggage during a medical evacuation and repatriation.
