Voyageur Publishing and Events Ltd is launching a new international
airshow, Waypoint AirMed & Rescue 2009. Taking place 21–22 May 2009
at Oxford Airport, UK, the event will bring together the global
aeromedical and air rescue industries in a unique way.

Waypoint AirMed & Rescue 2009 will cater to members of all sectors
of the global air medicine and air rescue community, spanning civilian
fixed-wing and rotor-wing air ambulance, coastguard, armed forces, fire
and rescue, and police aviation.

Those attending will have the opportunity to share knowledge, learn
from others and make new contacts through conference sessions and
networking events. An exhibition area, static aircraft display and live
demonstrations will further enable attendees to observe the equipment
and procedures used by different air crews.

Denise Clements, Waypoint AirMed & Rescue conference co-ordinator,
commented: “The Waypoint AirMed & Rescue international airshow is
an exciting opportunity to bring together all those involved in saving
lives in the air. It’s a varied community, from emergency medical
helicopter organisations to medevac crews operating under enemy fire,
from international jet ambulances to military and civilian search and
rescue. By including all these groups in one event, we hope to create a
forum where those attending can benefit from the latest developments
across the different strands of this essential industry.”


Staff from assistance companies, organisations that co-ordinate
emergency transport of sick or injured travellers, often by air
ambulance, will also benefit through visiting the aircraft at the
static display and attending workshops sessions aimed at call handling
