About Phelps Air
Phelps Air operates a Bell 407 GXP helicopter, equipped with the latest in aviation safety and medical equipment such as:
- on-board oxygen

Phelps Air is now carrying blood in the helicopter. Pre-hospital blood product administration improves patient outcomes.
It will be located on hospital property and staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
