Fixed-Wing Aircraft While some helicopters have a range of around 300 to 400 miles, the fixed-wing turbo prop or jet aircraft has a range varying from hundreds to thousands of miles. Fixed-wing aircraft also travel at much greater speeds. A rotary-wing aircraft must rely on its main rotor for both generating lift and creating forward thrust for flight, thus reaching a practical limit of around 200 knots. In contrast, modern AE Lear Jets routinely cruise at 400 knots, decreasing the time taken to travel long distances by more than half.

Other resuscitation measures utilized by AE crews, such as chest tube placement, intravenous lines, thoracotomy equipment, ultrasound, and blood products, are all useless if the patient does not have a patent airway. The second category of trauma patients requiring aeromedical evacuation is the convalescent category. These patients have already been stabilized and many times have already had surgery at the referring institution but require either specialized care or perhaps rehabilitation closer to home.
