Air Evac Lifeteam (US Nationwide)

News / Updates

If you have any additional information, feel free to add, or email and I'll add it to this page! Thanks!

  • Communications Center moved from West Plains, MO to O'Fallon, MO - (St Charles County near St Louis) in 2012.
  • A satellite tracking system in the helicopters sends a signal back to the communications center so the movement of the aircraft can be tracked at all times. Communicators are able to track an aircraft's heading, location and air speed. If an aircraft runs into a problem, communicators know where it is and what is going on. Messages between communicators and pilots are relayed over a frame relay system. When a communicator speaks to a pilot over the radio, the message is sent to computer routers located on transmission towers throughout Air Evac's service areas. The routers convert the radio waves into data bits that can be transmitted faster and more accurately over the long distance.

It does not contain stations licensed to radio service providers that AEL uses in some areas. Some locations may no longer be in use. The name shown is the tower location/city name on the FCC license, not the location of the helicopter base.
