MedAire is part of the Global Aerospace SM4 Safety Initiative, a program that provides complimentary resources to enhance aviation safety.

Dedicated to reducing aviation related mishaps, improving response capability and creating effective recovery systems, Global’s SM4 safety program provides continuously evolving safety management tools that help aviation operators create and maintain positive and predictive safety cultures.

SM4 brings together experts in the fields of Safety Management Systems (Baldwin Aviation), Human Factors (Convergent Performance), Emergency Response Planning (Fireside Team), and Health and Travel Assistance (MedAire).

MedAire provides expertise in matters of medical assistance, training, and onboard equipment for SM4 safety initiatives.

The International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) Annex 6 Part 2 mandates general aviation aircraft operators flying internationally implement an SMS to mitigate risk and improve safety.

International flight departments can comply with ICAO’s requirements by registering with the International Business Aviation Council’s (IBAC) code of best practices, known as the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO).

 MedAire helps satisfy IS-BAO medical recommendations via:
  • Annual cabin and flight crew medical training, including first aid and the location, operation and use of equipment, through MedAire’s signature course, Management of In-flight Illness and Injury.
  • Aviation-specific AEDs for onboard use by crew and passengers, including annual refurbishment and battery replacement throughout its lifecycle, managed by MedAire.
  • SMS best practices such as in-flight and ground-based medical and travel advice, and aviation-specific medical first aid equipment.
