Iowa is becoming an active tourist destination, with a tourist industry that’s reached $8 Billion in revenue.

Iowa is home to almost 500,000 senior citizens over the age of 65. The senior population is continually on the rise as the oldest of the Baby Boomer generation are approaching and reaching their early seventies. Unfortunately, seniors often require a medical transport (or Jet ICU) to reach the right care covered by their insurance and located in close proximity of family members. Angel MedFlight’s award winning medical flight team is experienced in providing medical flights and care to all critical care patients, including senior patients.
