Every EMS professional dreams of flying.

We get you ready to live the dream.

Air medical is one of the most desired career paths for EMS professionals – and one of the most competitive. Highly qualified EMTs, paramedics, and nurses are rejected every day because they simply don’t have what it takes to rise above an enormous crowd of candidates.

We can help you make sure you’re one of the ones who get off the ground.

Flight Safety Network is a team of teachers and mentors working full-time in all areas of medical and aviation. In this free newsletter, we give you the proven knowledge of what does – and doesn’t – work to show you’re the right choice for an air medical position, and give you an insider’s look at exactly what it’s like to handle every aspect of an air medical career.

We’re experienced professionals, and we want nothing but the best men and women up there in the air working with us. When we’re called to help, we want people with us who are devoted to giving everything they have, every time. We want people who understand how critical safety is to an air medical situation – for both the crew and the patient – and who hold themselves and their team to the highest standards.

And because we want all of this, we figured we better show you how to do it.

Our training doesn’t hypothesize about what air medical professionals might do in a given situation. We teach you exactly what we will do whenever necessary, and why it’s the right thing to do. We don’t deal in theories. We deal in experience, in training, and in the highest standards of air medical safety.

You’ll learn:

  • How to master a flight interview
  • The insider secrets to fly-along days
  • Tips on what you should look for in a flight program
  • What flight programs really want in a candidate
  • The all-important team approach to air medical safety
  • How to make the most effective use of every critical member of your team
  • Landing zone setup and security
  • And a hell of a lot more

The newsletter is absolutely free to everyone interested in being a part of an air medical team – from the pilots and mechanics to the EMTs, paramedics and nurses to the dispatchers, firefighters, and emergency department staff.

You’ll even get our free ebook, The Flight Stuff – a 30 page guide that explains exactly how to get started as a flight nurse or flight paramedic. We want you on board with us, and we figure showing you what the professionals can do is the best way to get started.
