The Technical Evacuation Advanced Aero Medical, or TEAAM, recently launched, bringing a new, not-for-profit model to providing helicopter healthcare to remote B.C.

Blackcomb Aviation is one of only a handful of companies that can perform this operation.
Aero Design has announced European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) certification of its cargo basket, bicycle racks and its extensive list of fixed and quick release steps for the Airbus AS350.
Randell and Windsor approached Blackcomb Helicopters in the town of Squamish, where they planned to base their new response unit.
Immediately, Blackcomb management saw the vision behind the paramedics’ proposal and agreed to support the founding of Technical Evacuation Advanced Aero Medical, or TEAAM.
