When lives hang in the balance, medical professionals turn to RVL Aviation for its professional approach to time-critical missions.

Human organs, including hearts, lungs and livers, become available as potential transplants in a random and completely unpredictable fashion. A heart which suddenly becomes available in northern Scotland might be needed in Cornwall, and in a matter of hours. That’s when RVL is able to assist, called out typically with a couple of hours’ notice to collect an organ and fly it to its destination – sometimes accompanied by a surgical team – in safe condition and as speedily as possible.

RVL is also called upon to provide vital transport links for patients needing transfer from a remote location to the nearest major hospital, typically island people who need specialist medical attention they cannot get locally.

Additionally, RVL is one of very few UK air charter operators equipped to handle the airborne repatriation of deceased people.
