Tactical Aeromedical Evacuation

This paper discusses the principles of tactical aeromedical evacuation (TACEVAC) planning and execution with specific consideration of the command and control arrangements for TACEVAC. UK personnel may be familiar with TACEVAC procedures using UK national aircraft and aeromedical evacuation crews between national medical facilities. Recent operations, most particularly in Afghanistan, have illustrated the requirement to understand TACEVAC within a multi-national context as both our military hospitals have moved patients using other nations aircraft and medical escort crews, and UK aeromedical aircraft and crews have moved other nations’ patients.
