Emergency Response

ALE maintains regular communication with field parties and ALE aircraft, using Iridium satellite phone, tracking beacons and HF/VHF radio.

We maintain a 24‐hour communication watch during our operating season and we are ready to respond in case of emergency. If we have not received contact or sign of movement after 48 hours our Field Operations Manager will organize the search and rescue response.

Our field response team includes experienced flight crews, doctors and medics who specialize in emergency and remote medicine; mountain guides with advanced first aid training; firefighting personnel; and equipment operators who can assist with large vehicle incidents.
