Launch of Healthmap 2014


Healthmap 2014 is a resource for flight departments and executives to understand the level of preparation needed by travelers prior to departure and the degree of medical support they may need once at their destination. The map was created by MedAire, a International SOS company that provides business and general aviation clients with medical, travel and safety services in-flight and at destination. Pilots and flight departments can see at a glance the medical and travel risk ratings, local time, current weather, and NOTAMS for each destination on their itinerary.
