Acadian Ambulance and Air Med Honored by Louisiana State Police

The Louisiana State Police have awarded Acadian Ambulance and Air Med with their elite Distinguished Service Award.

The award is bestowed upon entities that are friends and comrades of the LSP and go above and beyond in serving their communities. Acadian’s vice president of air services, Erroll Babineaux, was in attendance at Troop I’s annual Christmas luncheon when he was called up in front of the hundreds in attendance to receive the award for the Acadian Ambulance and Air Med employees.

“I was completely shocked, but also incredibly honored to be able to accept this award on behalf of our ground and flight medics,” said Babineaux. “We are all so grateful to have such an excellent working relationship with the Louisiana State Police, and we have so much respect for their dedication to the safety of our communities.”

The award is not a recurring award, but instead a special recognition given on an as-earned basis by the Louisiana State Police to acknowledge those that go above and beyond. “We are very particular in who we give this award to,” said Becket Breaux, Troop I commander. “Acadian Ambulance and Air Med have done a lot for the troops over the years and we were very happy to recognize them for their efforts.”

New Year’s Day 2014 Marked 100 Years of Commercial Aviation

1 January 2014 marked exactly 100 years since the birth of commercial aviation. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) invites everyone with an interest in aviation to join a year-long celebration of the 100th anniversary and take part in a conversation about what needs to happen to make the next 100 years even more momentous.

On 1 January 1914, a team of four visionaries combined efforts in the first scheduled commercial airline flight

Percival Fansler organised the funding for the St. Petersburg-Tampa Airboat Line which provided the first scheduled air service across Tampa Bay, Florida

Thomas Benoist’s airboat conducted the first flight, piloted by Tony Jannus

Abram Pheil, then mayor of St. Petersburg, paid $400 at auction for the 23-minute flight

These pioneers could not have envisioned the transformational changes that would follow. The industry began with only one passenger on one route on 1 January 1914. Today the global aviation industry provides unprecedented connectivity and positively impacts—directly and indirectly—people in all corners of the world.

Some key statistics include:

On average, every day more than 8 million people fly. In 2013 total passenger numbers were 3.1 billion—surpassing the 3 billion mark for the first time ever. That number is expected to grow to 3.3 billion in 2014 (equivalent to 44% of the world’s population).

About 50 million tonnes of cargo is transported by air each year (about 140,000 tonnes daily). The annual value of these goods is some $6.4 trillion—or 35% of the value of goods traded internationally.

Aviation supports over 57 million jobs and generates $2.2 trillion in economic activity. The industry’s direct economic contribution of around $540 billion would, if translated into the GDP ranking of countries, place the industry in 19th position.

Global airline industry turnover is expected to be $743 billion in 2014, with an average industry net profit margin of 2.6%.

“Over the last century, commercial aviation has transformed the world in ways unimaginable in 1914. The first flight provided a short-cut across Tampa Bay. Today the aviation industry re-unites loved ones, connects cultures, expands minds, opens markets, and fosters development. Aviation provides people around the globe with the freedom to make connections that can change their lives and the world,” said Tony Tyler, IATA’s Director General and CEO.

“Aviation is a force for good. And the potential of commercial flight to keep changing the world for the better is almost unlimited. Aviation has always been a team effort. Growing and sustainably spreading the benefits of connectivity will require the industry, governments, regulators and local communities keep true to the ‘all-in-it-together’ ethos that was the bedrock of that pioneering first flight. And we should be guided by the long-term interests of all whose lives are positively transformed by commercial aviation every day.

A hundred years is something worth celebrating. And we look forward to creating an equally remarkable legacy for commercial aviation’s second century,” said Tyler.

Commemorative Activities

A website (www.flying100years.com) has been launched in 1 January 2014 to host the centennial celebration. Along with historical and economic reference materials, the website will also be an interactive information hub depicting the value that commercial aviation provides from personal, economic and other perspectives.

Twitter conversations about aviation’s first century can be linked through #flying100

IATA is one of the sponsors of Flight 2014 which is planning to re-enact the first commercial passenger flight using a Hoffman X-4 “Mullet Skiff” amphibious flying boat, similar in many respects to the original Benoist airboat which performed the first flight. The Hoffman will take off from St Petersburg, Florida and fly across the bay to Tampa at 10:00am US Eastern Standard Time, re-tracing the exact path taken by Jannus and Pheil 100 years ago.
