Local airline Aurigny has had to withdraw its life-saving Medevac service from Alderney outside of normal hours.
They are unable to fly seriously ill passengers from Alderney to hospital in Guernsey when the airport is closed, because of staff shortages.
For decades they have provided the service, but now it can't guarantee it will be available between 7pm and 7am.
States member Steve Roberts worked for the airline and has witnessed many evacuations "in the dead of night".
Mr Roberts has now written to Guernsey's most senior politician, calling the situation disgraceful.
The States say they are working with Aurigny to resolve the "temporary man power issue".
The airline say they will do everything they can to secure crew out of hours, and the following contingency services have been put in place:
- Flying Christine (undergoing maintenance until mid-June)
- UK Coastguard
- French authorities
- Private charter
The following statements have been issued:
