The FAA is investigating whether the Boston MedFlight pilot “fell asleep at the controls of a helicopter while conducting a flight to a Boston hospital from Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts on June 24.”

Boston MedFlight says it investigated the incident in which a pilot overflew the designated helipad and determined that fatigue was a factor.

“The transport was completed successfully and there were no injuries to the patient or flight crew,” Boston MedFlight CEO Maura Hughes said in a statement.

The pilot is no longer employed by Boston MedFlight.

The company is now working with a fatigue management consultant and safety consultant to review its policies and procedures.

According to its website, Boston MedFlight flies “approximately 1,842 helicopter critical care transport missions per year—an average of 5 flights a day.”
