Can air ambulance make it big?
Someone thought that best medical services can be rendered in record short time by going in for airways. And they launched an air ambulance service in Hyderabad, something which was never seen in India.
By investing Rs. 150 crores on this project, Wings Aviation has made news. Starting with Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, its Air Aid helicopter project will gradually be spread to other South Indian states. Even North India will see its expansion. How far can the Air Aid helicopter fly? Up to 450 km without needing refueling.
But per-hour cost is Rs. 1.50 lakh for the end user. Isn't it too costly? Not for the creamy layer of the society perhaps. With government support and corporate innovations, the project can become very successful.
