“Sam has a solid track record in the industry and is recognized for his transformational leadership that has proven effective in organizational performances and team development,” said Airmedic’s CEO Sophie Larochelle.
Cimone has held various positions as a strategic and operational leader in the air medical transport sector including President of Skyservice Air Ambulance where he improved the scope and quality of services, programs, and medical infrastructure.
An intensive care nurse by profession, Airmedic explains Cimone quickly established himself in the air medical care sector in Quebec and developed a pioneering vision in the field of air ambulances.

It is the first airborne medical evacuation company to obtain Transport Canada certification authorizing night flight using night vision goggles and to obtain QMENTUM approval.
