Introduction: Provide a bibliometric overview of publications on aeromedical transport.

Method: A bibliometric study that approached the production registered electronically in base, from 1946 to 2022, with descriptive statistical analysis.

Results: A total of 258 documents were retrieved, including original articles and reviews, from 725 authors and co-authors, published in 157 journals. The average number of documents per author was 0.356 and the average number of authors per document was 2.81, and the collaboration index was 3.75. Nursing contributed with 54 (20.93%), and Medicine was the most productive area, with 227 (87.98%).

Conclusion: The data presented demonstrates the low level of interest of the scientific community in the subject. It was not possible to identify an elite group of authors. The study shows that there is dispersion in the production of journals. The quantitative contribution of Nursing is insignificant when compared to Medicine.
