Global Flying Hospitals is acquiring specialized aircraft! The core aircraft is the Russian built ILyushin , which is capable of operating from unpaved runways, lift heavy loads, fly at speed for app. 3,000 nautical miles, land and off-load mobile clinics, emergency shelters and other products.
These aircraft are the the back-bone of our roll-on, roll-off, high-tech surgical hospitals, that are manufactured to fit the internal dimensions of the aircraft.
They are manufactured with lightweight yet strong composite materials, with their own solar power, generators, gases, water filtration and sterile systems.
These mobile clinics are designed for specialties as Orthopedic, Pediatrics, Obstetrics, Ophthalmology, Surgical, Women’s Health etc., and each being fully self-contained.
This fleet-building is the emerging resource to greatly expand global medical care in developing countries.
As a key supporter of GFH once said; “5,280 feet takes you one mile … but a 5,280 ft runway takes you to the world”.
Our ailing world is beset by both failed health-care systems, and a plethora of natural disasters. GFH’s medical aviation fleet provides solutions now … and as a growing organisation, major solutions in many countries for the future.
When natural disasters strike, GFH is mission-ready, and able to land aircraft at the closest airport to the disaster, or in unprepared landing zones (ULZ’s) as in the case with the rugged and versatile ILyushin.
Training and development is also crucial in order to extend the capabilities of health-care workers in developing countries. Such training greatly expands the humanitarian effort.
Each modular hospital is designed with video-conferencing and tele-medicine linked to alliance medical colleges and recording of all medical procedures for future study and learning.
What we do – plus plus:
GFH focuses on providing clinics to various alliance medical charities (those which have contracted with us), plus governments of developing countries, corporate sponsors making a difference, various organisations, churches and others wanting to help transform lives, we also provide a no-charge service of ferrying medical professionals to those regions not serviced by commercial airlines. Hard-to-get-to places that will bring the Medical Professional to the GFH Mobile Clinic.
In other words, we do not simply drop off a clinic … if the receiving charity or party in a developing country also requires their volunteers to come to the region in need and have no way of getting there eg; no commercial airlines … we will send our transporter to come and fetch them, deliver them right to where our clinics have been placed!
The World’s Logistics Resource
GFH is building this fleet of specialized aircraft, because developing countries need the tools, infrastructure and equipment. Many humanitarian medical charities have large data-bases of volunteer medical professionals, yet at the village, town or regional level, the medical facilities or equipment is often poor or even none existent. With GFH resources, they can plan better, enlarge their missions and generate greater coverage of medical provision to people on a global scale.
GFH’s 2ist Century Modular Hospitals
Here is the nucleus of GFH. Modular hospitals, comprising high-tech surgical suites, advanced medical equipment and facilities. These hospitals are designed to be transported within the cargo aircraft, and are off-loadable. The sides expand with the push of a button, with both sides expanding outwards. And each hospital is designed for specific medical specialisms.
Modular emergency shelters are also designed for transport, in large numbers to enable support for natural disasters. They come dismantled, in order to save space and transport many … and then assembled on-site within two hours. Windows and lockable doors, insulated and secure .. they make for a very secure and protected housing for up to 10 people.
