Greetings, I'm producing a feature-length documentary and am looking for interesting, relevant, first-hand input from HEMS pilots, crew, operators/management -- even patients -- especially those willing to appear on camera. Looking to cover all aspects of the (primarily U.S.) industry, both good and bad. As you'll probably surmise, topics such as: CRFS, aircraft type, IFR vs. VFR, duty time, insurance, "pressure to fly", competition, legislation, etc. will be included. I'd also like to highlight what's working in the industry -- what drew you to it and why do you stay (or did you leave)? Likewise I will be looking to showcase the current state-of-the-art in terms of air ambulance helicopters and the technology being used on board to save lives every day. So I'd like to hear from you: stories, gripes, complaints, kudos, soap-box issues, off-the-record tips, insight, recommendations, commendations, referrals or introductions, etc... please drop me a private note directly at HEMSfilm@gmail.com and include contact info and your location. It is my intention to make a compelling, educational film -- offering a broad but comprehensive (and objective) look at today's HEMS industry -- in order to raise both public awareness and appreciation for this vital endeavor. Thank you in advance.
Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum and I'm very confused on how to become a hems pilot or what are the requirements. I'm 18 and graduated from high school last yeah, I took some college credit courses such as English, Speech, Biology, Psychology. Right now I'm planning to register on a private schools for pilots here in Florida. But I need some guidance. I appreciate any help, advice you could give.
I am working on a scenario and trying to justify a decision to either accept a dispatch call. I am curious to know if any HEMS pilots out there would mind sharing their company or personal limitations as far as weather goes, being mostly interested in ceilings/visibility, turbulence/winds and so on. Thanks in advance.
