I was skeptical when I first found EMS Flight Safety Network. I really did not want to spend money on stuff I figured I already knew. And with 21 years' experience as a medic, I didn't think there was too much I hadn't already seen.
After completing the EMS Flight Safety Network audio course and coaching with Troy, all I can say is - Wow! I am so glad I bought the training. It was worth every penny and then some!
The flight interview tips and fast-action worksheets were priceless. The course teaches what questions to expect in a flight interview and exactly how to answer. Some answers I used 'as is' during my interview.
Nothing speaks louder than results, as they say. Next week I start my training to fly for one of the best air medical teams in the United States. Thank you, EMS Flight Safety Network!

EMS Flight Safety Network took me by the hand and showed me what to do for every step of the get a flight job process.
Troy’s advice on how to write a flight resume and cover letter was priceless. His sample interview questions and tips on what to look for in a flight program are worth the price of the whole home-study course.
I worked really hard to earn my FP-C and CCEMT-P certifications, I don’t want a stupid mistake or something I just don’t know about the industry to keep me from earning my dream job. Flight Safety Network took care of all the details so I didn’t have to worry.

Flight Safety Network helped me make better choices. They gave me straight forward, easy to understand advice about what to look for in air medical services.
What I learned is I'm doing a lot of stuff right, but the things I was doing wrong are costing me a lot of time and money, not to mention keeping me from flying.
FSN told me exactly what to do to get started on an air ambulance flight crew career. I had no idea how a flight interview worked or what to expect until speaking with the experts at Flight Safety Network.
Troy quickly put my fears to rest, and for the first time, I felt like wow, I can really do this! I now know one day I’ll earn the title of ‘Flight Crew’. I really can’t thank them enough.

Gail Terry Testimonial
Before I found Troy and EMS Flight Safety Network I was a nervous wreck about my flight interview.
I read books and researched online forums but Troy and EMS Flight Safety Network beat them all. I now feel excited about sharing my past experience in a flight interview and getting on with my air ambulance career.
I am no longer in a state of continual worry. EMS Flight Safety Network coaching program really helped me. Troy gets it. He took the time to listen to my personal situation and teach his interview mastery course in a way that made sense to me. And that's what really matters! That I understand it and know how to use it. It has taken such a load off my mind.
Now I can relax and know I am going into my interviews completely prepared.

Daniel Baskett Testimonial
Troy coached me to my first flight job. Before I found EMS Flight Safety Network, I went on interviews, never got a call back and didn't understand why.
The tips in the audio course and Troy's personal coaching were right on.
After listening to the audio course and working with Troy it almost seemed "unfair." Once you know what to say and look for, and have the confidence to show your skills and talk about your past experiences, it's just a matter of time until you get hired.

I’m an EMT and Paramedic, and I want to tell you about something that’s changing my life. My friends and co-workers say I’m a great paramedic. I would say – "I’m still learning, but always try to do my best for my patients."
My biggest problem is that I’m shy and I don’t like to talk about myself - even when I know I did a good job. So when it comes to interviews, resumes, and networking, I’m probably not the best at it. But I am getting better – and I want to thank the folks who helped me.
Troy and gang at EMS Flight Safety Network are teaching me everything I need to know to become a flight nurse. That's my dream - to become a flight nurse . . . And now I know I can do it!

Derick Sutherland Testimonial
Troy and EMS Flight Safety Network helped get me on track for a flight medic career. I liked INSIDER training program so much that I upgraded to a custom one-on-one coaching package with Troy. It really helped me a lot!
Troy simplified the whole process and explained away any fears I had about what was going on "behind the scenes" when waiting on flight programs to call back, schedule interviews, move on to the next step, etc.
I highly recommend INSIDER training and all other EMS Flight Safety Network coaching programs. When it comes to getting a flight job, they are the second-to-none experts

I’m Karen Kramer. I’m excited to tell you I just got hired as a flight nurse for one of the best air medical programs in the United States.
I am one of the original Flight Safety Net Insiders. I joined as a charter member when the insider program first started. I read every issue cover to cover, and listened to every training CD. And most importantly, I followed the flight interview and networking tips. All the training was excellent, but the best thing I can say about INSIDER, is that it works!
I like it so much I’m keeping my membership going after I start flying. The flight and people skill tips are priceless. If you’re even thinking about flying as a nurse, medic, or pilot someday, you owe it to yourself to check out Flight Safety Net Insider training program."

I joined Flight Safety Net Insider to learn more about what air medical crews do every day. What I gained was a whole new respect for the medical crews and pilots on board medical helicopters.
INSIDER is the perfect name for this training program. The newsletter and audio CDs go deep into subjects only an INSIDER could know. I wish this type of training was around years ago. I think air medicine would be safer if it had started sooner.
I highly recommend Flight Safety Net Insider to anyone interested in flying.

I highly recommend EMS Flight Safety Network. Troy did an excellent job getting me ready for my interview in the short amount of time I had to prepare. Troy was prompt, professional and prepared for all of our coaching sessions.
Building a story board was the best part of the coaching in my opinion. I do not consider myself a great story teller and I have trouble thinking of stories on the spot. Preparing stories I wanted to tell gave me the opportunity to practice the stories I wanted to tell and brainstorm different ways to work them into the interview.
I truly feel the time with Troy was well spent. I did not feel like I was simply paying for a service, but it felt more like getting good advice from a friend.

INSIDER Pro training taught me how to flight interview the right way.
There's so many good candidates for flight medic jobs that I felt blessed to find Troy and EMS Flight Safety Network. Troy went right to work showing me the best way to tell my story on a resume and in a flight interview.
Thanks to INSIDER training program, I know I can do it. Troy shares all kinds of things in the monthly newsletters and audio CDs that you just know you'd never hear anywhere else. He gets it and helps people like me succeed. What more can I say? If you want to compete and kick ass for a flight job, you need this training.

I did a ‘Flight Audit’ with Troy and EMS Flight Safety Network. I am very happy I did. It led to personalized coaching with Troy.
Troy’s teaching style is understandable and ground-level. He tailors the process to your needs. It is individualized, one on one, instruction. But more than simple instruction, it is dialogue. There is a difference.
Another benefit is active feedback. Ask a question and you will receive a solid answer. Not “well maybe”, but a true “yes”, “no”, or “I don’t know but this is what I think and how I feel”.
The amount of $$ you spend is little compared to the information & knowledge you have to gain.
I recommend Troy and EMS Flight Safety Network coaching without any doubts or reservations.
Whatever the “something” is that’s holding you back and keeping you from flying, Troy will find it and fix it. You will find out there is lot about flight interviewing you don’t or didn’t know. If you’re serious about flying air medical, this is definitely the way to go.
