Mr. Vikash Beniwal, Managing Director, VTSKY Aviation Services Pvt Ltd

In the recent Covid-19 pandemic, healthcare transportation services have been in the focus. The sector deals with transferring the health-related equipment and patients through air or roadways. The growing need of fast transportation and improving healthcare sector has boosted the healthcare transportation.

Previously, the roadway was the most prominent mode of transportation. But due to the pandemic, air ambulance has come to limelight. It is the fastest way to transport the medical equipment in emergency. But lack of awareness among people was the main cause that air ambulance was not used by many people.

In recent times, many aviation companies have started spreading awareness about inculcating air ambulance with healthcare transportation.

VTSKY Aviation Services Pvt. Ltd. is one such company, which has helped the healthcare sector during the tough time of Covid-19 pandemic. In an interview with Insights Success, the company shares its journey and talks about the challenges faced by them.

Following are the highlights of the interview:

Describe about your company in detail.

VTSKY Aviation Services Pvt. Ltd. is a service specialist organization based in Gurgaon, Haryana, offering its services connected with aviation and other activities.

We provide private jet charters to business professionals in order to maximize their time efficiency. By chartering private jets, executives and senior managers can work around tight schedules, attending several meetings, or making numerous site visits in one day. With access to private terminals, you won’t have to face busy airports and queues through security.

We earned the reputation of being a leader in the fixed wing air ambulance services that distinguish us from many global air ambulance companies and air medical providers.

Our company has a large range of aircraft, suitable for medical evacuation flights and transportation. These include jets, turboprops, and helicopters, which are specially equipped to transport the sick and injured patient, accompanied by relatives and specialist medical staff.

Brief us about the featured person and shed some light on his/her professional tenure.

Mr. Vikash Beniwal, Managing Director, has 12 years of experience in aviation industry. He is from the village, Jogiwala of district Sirsa, Haryana. He is an aircraft maintenance engineer by qualification and has completed study from the School of Aeronautics, Neemrana, Alwar, Rajasthan. By profession, Vikash is a flight operations specialist and has worked with many charter operators.

What made you venture into the healthcare transportation services sector?

During our tenure, we experienced some loopholes in air ambulance services like most of the people don’t know how to book an air ambulance, how its charges are applicable, about its medical staff, type of aircraft, etc. People residing in remote cities faced difficulty in taking benefit of healthcare transport facilities because of these loopholes. That’s why we decided to make some difference in this air ambulance sector and started the journey.

What kind of offerings do you provide to your clients?

We are providing air ambulance with latest medical equipment and experienced medical staff for critically ill patient, ECMO transfer, organ transfer, covid patients, and deceased body transfer.

Other services: Private charter flights for businessmen, politicians, or celebrities.

Helicopter services for personal use, weddings, Vaishno Devi, Kedarnath, Amarnath, Chaar Dham.

Aviation Trainings for pilot, cabin crew, aircraft maintenance engineering, or ground staff.

What kind of challenges have you faced while entering the healthcare transportation services sector?

When we started choosing the most suitable aircraft for patients, finding the best medical equipment to be on board and experienced medical staff was challenging for us.

First, we need to check the patient history then accordingly need to choose aircraft, equipment, and medical staff.

How much your company/business was affected in these pandemic times and what were the steps taken by you to curb the damages all the while helping your clients and maintaining the safety of your employees?

During the pandemic, transfer of covid patients was a critical factor for us because we had to take care of patients, our pilots, and medical staff at the same time. But we can proudly say that we did our best and transferred many covid patients. We are still doing the same with utmost care.

What would you like to advice the young generation of entrepreneurs?

Every entrepreneur needs to face some challenges during the journey.  However, they have to come across various ups and downs. In such circumstances, they need to stay tuned on the goal. Every industry have pros and cons and we need to figure out these. For the best result we just need to concentrate on best services and let the profit be a byproduct of your services.

Where do you envision your company/business to be in the long run and what are your future goals? How do you plan to embrace the changes happening in your industry?

Bearing in mind the future of air ambulance services in India, we are coming with some latest technologies. Shortly, we will introduce a special aircraft, or we can say a flying hospital. In our fleet that will be pre-equipped with all the latest medical equipment, so that we can transfer the patient in shortest time with utmost care from anywhere in India.

What is the current industrial scenario of the healthcare transportation services sector?

Currently health care transportation services are not up to the mark as compared to other countries and still hospitals are a dominating factor. India is the second largest populated country and except metro cities most of the population is not in reach of road ambulance then air ambulance is so far away. This industry can create jobs in lakhs. Looking some steady growth in coming years.
