At Air Methods, we pride ourselves on a diverse range of capabilities. While our largest offering is direct air medical services, with air ambulance bases all over the country, we knew we didn’t want to stop at that.
Enter Spright, our newly formed drone solution, designed to help improve healthcare access and minimize supply challenges. The COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated critical flaws in our health care system creating an opportunity to find better solutions to extend access to healthcare, especially in rural America. Using the latest in technology and drone innovation, Spright will be delivering hope and facilitating healing with speed and efficiency that was previously unimaginable.
Built around our existing infrastructure of more than 300 bases, serving hundreds of hospitals, across 48 states in predominantly in rural areas, this new drone delivery network will improve access to urgently needed medical supplies for healthcare providers and the communities they serve.
Collaborating with Wingcopter, an industry-leading German drone manufacturer, Spright is creating a drone-based, healthcare-specific delivery network across the United States. We are making this possible by deploying fleets of Wingcopter’s new flagship delivery drone, the Wingcopter 198. The Wingcopter 198 is a state-of-the-art autonomous eVTOL delivery drone that enables safe, reliable, fast, and bi-directional medical deliveries.
At the heart of Spright is their commitment to provide communities across the United States timely access to critical medical resources, all while removing the cost, skill, and labor restraints of implementing a state-of-the-art drone program, allowing you to seamlessly extend your care to those in need.
As Spright continues to rev up, they recently launched their website. Check it out to learn more about the talented staff and dedicated work being done to expand this life-saving medical drone service, designed solely for healthcare.
