Life as a Helicopter Air Ambulance Pilot

It’s 0200 and the phone ringing wakes you out of a deep sleep. You’ve got a scene request 10 miles south with one patient. Your final destination will be the trauma center at a hospital 20 miles east of the scene. The weather has been marginal all night. Can you take the flight? The clock is ticking.

  1. It’s interesting to learn that when it comes to flight impacting factors, they can be calculated before the shifts. I do agree, fuel planning based on the distance and time would be very important. I would really appreciate if more hospitals would offer an air ambulance service since traffic these days are quite heavy all the time. Having this service readily available everywhere would save more countless lives. As for you, you are a real hero! Thank you!
