Air Ambulance Flight Crews
Flight crews typically consist of a flight physiology certified RN and Respiratory Therapist. In cases where the patient requires higher medical care AirMD will select a flight physician to accompany the transport. In situation where the patient is stable, a cost effective alternative would replace the respiratory therapist with a flight paramedic.
All flight crew personnel under annual flight physiology training, emergency evacuation training, HIPPA awareness training, background checks and drug tests. The patient’s medical care is our primary concern in all transports.
Air Ambulance Flight Crews – Pilots
All lead pilots have a minimum of 2,500 total flight hours experience with 1,000 of those hours in multi-engine. All pilots receive on-going professional training by FAA approved check airmen and/ or on flight simulators. They must pass a flight physical every 6 months and annual background / drug tests.

Med Flight Air Ambulance Physicians
A board certified emergency medicine physician and flight physician with 30 years of Air Ambulance transport experience leads our medical flight crews. He also advises on day-to-day operations and reviews patient conditions on necessary transports. This allows for medical direction and consultation to any of our air ambulances with 24-hour availability.
In addition to the superior in-flight medical training he requires for the selected flight crews, he institutes a very personal, compassionate culture to ensure each patient and their families experience a comfortable and compassionate air ambulance flight.
