(HUNTINGBURG) – St. Vincent StatFlight will relocate its Evansville-based aircraft to the Huntingburg Airport by the end of April.
According to St. Vincent officials, moving the aircraft to the Huntingburg location will place it closer to the major requesting EMS agencies in the area.
A crew of 12 people — three registered nurses, three paramedics, four pilots, and two mechanics — will be stationed at the airport 24/7.
In addition, StatFlight pilots will be able to take advantage of the Huntingburg Airport’s instrument approach process. That service will allow the crew to respond to incidents in conditions like low clouds, heavy haze and fog that prevented them from doing so in the past.
