What happens when you combine the resources of two industry leaders from the aviation and the EMS community? You have the creation of a world class air ambulance service to meet your most demanding transportation needs.

In 2008, Central EMS and Epps Aviation entered into a collaborative partnership under the Central Air Ambulance umbrella. This partnership brought together the top quality patient care and transportation services of Central Air Ambulance with the world class flight operation services of Epps Aviation. By working together under Central Air Ambulance, both industry leaders were able to focus on what they do best.

The leadership of Central EMS has over 35 years experience in emergency medical services, critical care transportation, EMS operations management and air ambulance operations. Operating over 60 ground ambulances in the metro Atlanta area, a full-time communications center, and a full-time billing and insurance department, Central Air Ambulance is able to capitalize on the experience and resources of its ground operations sister agency, Central EMS. Quality patient care and customer service are more than just buzz words they are engrained into the daily operation of Central Air Ambulance.

Epps Aviation has been a fixed based operator at the Dekalb-Peachtree Airport since 1965 and an FAA approved Air Carrier since 1979 under Part 135. Epps also has a Part 145 certificate as an FAA approved repair station and is a factory authorized repair station for a variety of aircraft. Epps Aviation maintains high marks for safety and service and has an ARG/US Gold safety rating from the Aviation Research Group. With their long history in flight operations, their safety rating and maintenance standards, Epps Aviation was the perfect fit to join forces with Central Air Ambulance. Epps Aviation maintains all aspects of flight operations and staffs each air ambulance call with two Captain rated pilots. The maintenance of the air ambulance fleet exceeds industry standards and the Epps Aviation teams are active participants in the Central Air Ambulance safety and quality assurance process.

By bringing together the combined resources and experience of Central Air Ambulance and Epps Aviation the healthcare community now has a world class air ambulance service that can fly your patients anywhere, anytime and on-time.
