In October, the Central Wisconsin Joint Airport Board signed a long-term agreement to locate Spirit’s air medical transportations services at CWA in Mosinee. With this move, Spirit serves our region and beyond with 2 helicopters, 5 ground bases with 12 ambulances and intercept SUVs, and 1 fixed wing airplane.
Spirit comes to CWA with a highly trained crew consisting of first responders, nurses, pilots, and mechanics. The operation will be staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
