Belizean Pilot to Captain BERT and Wings of Hope

The Ministry of Blue Economy and Civil Aviation granted a training and recertification opportunity to Belizean pilot Henry Salguero to captain the Belize Emergency Response Team and Wings of Hope’s Air Evacuation Program.  This program has enabled BERT to hire Salguero who has more than one thousand eight hundred commercial flight time which meets BERT’s requirement.   In a release today, the Executive Director of BERT, Andre Carillo, said the new addition will strengthen their capacity to serve Belize, since “Air medical evacuation services allow us to reach our patients timely and efficiently, from remote locations as far as Punta Gorda Town to San Pedro and Corozal. During a crisis, air medical evacuations provide hope to our patients requiring higher level of care. Our patients are our first priority and our air ambulance has made a tremendous difference in ensuring we meet our mandate and commitment to our community.”
