Guardian Flight resumes service after missing plane

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - Guardian Flight is resuming service in Alaska, phasing in across their eight base locations as crew members get ready.

In a statement on their Facebook page, Senior Vice President of Operations Randy Lyman said "After a period of somber reflection following the loss of our aircraft earlier this past week, Guardian Flight has begun the process to resume air medical transport service in Alaska."

Guardian Flight has already reinstated service in other states where they have locations. Although the Coast Guard suspended their search for the missing aircraft, Guardian Flight says they are organizing aerial surveys of the coastline and a SONAR search of the ocean near where the missing aircraft was last reported. They are also looking for the flight recorder for more information.
