An Eye For Good

I am about to tell you a true story. If you believe me, you will be well rewarded. If you don't believe me, I will make it worth your while to change your mind. Let me explain.

Jen is a friend of mine who has an eye for good training. One day she called excited about a job offer she just got. "It's so incredible," she said, "when you hear how I got this job, you won't believe it."

"What won't I believe?" I asked. "What could be so incredible?"

Jen continued. "When you asked me to 'test drive' your stuff for Nurses and Medics and Pilots who want to fly medical helicopters, I did it just to help you out. I followed the steps just to make sure everything worked. I did it to help a friend. That's it. Nothing more. I didn't expect anything to come of it."

"And with my medical condition, I never once thought about flying as a real flight medic."

"But now it's happening. For real!"

I had to cut her off to get a word in -- "Jen, what are you even talking about? What's happening for real?"

Jen continued. "Do you remember when it happened? When I lost my eye? How I figured my dreams of flying were over. And I moved on because I didn't have a choice. Do you remember?"

Me: "Yes, of course I remember? You were very strong. I admired you for it. We all did."

Jen: "But that's the thing I'm trying to tell you, Troy....

I was wrong. You were wrong. The Army was wrong....

We were all wrong! And thank God we were because it's still not too late. Because I still can fly. And now it's happening!"

Holding Herself Back

Jen and I served in the Army together. We went to Fort Sam Houston medic school together. After medic school, I went to Officer Candidate School and flight school. Jen went on to become a great medic.

But before Jen left the Army . . . . it happened.

A fluke accident took her left eye.

But Jen recovered. And true to Jen's go-getter, drive-on spirit, Jen refused to let her injury slow her down in any way....

Except one.

Jen no longer believed she could fly.

The Army told her she couldn't fly. And Jen believed it. She never thought about flying again. Jen just moved on to becoming a great paramedic.

Fast forward to 30 years later...

Jen and I are still friends. And when I needed someone to 'test drive' my INSIDER future flight crew training program, Jen was a no-brainer pick.

She was older and wiser, but still the same 'never give up' spit-fire she was back in the Army. True to Jen's nature, she did everything INSIDER training asked her to do.

Jen built her network, practiced mock flight interviews and mailed out real resumes to real flight programs. She always said, "If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right."

And when Jen got a call for a real flight interview, she figured "why not? It will help me with my next real interview." See, Jen was still thinking the same as 30 years ago. She quit believing she could fly the day of her accident.

Autopilot 'Miracle'

But Jen was wrong. A lot changed in 30 years. And the 'real world' is different than the Army.

And that's why she was so excited!

"Are you sitting down? Because you're not going to believe what just happened!" is the first thing Jen said. She recognized my voice and didn't even bother with hello.

"All I did was follow the steps in the program you sent me. And two weeks from now I'm starting as a flight medic for one of the biggest flight programs in the country. Can you believe it?!"

Truth is, I could believe it. Because I know Jen, and I know the success others have had with our training program. But before I could say it....

Jen cut me off again.

"I swear to God this stuff you send me every month is like an autopilot to become a flight medic. I mean, I didn't do anything special. I just followed the directions, and now I'm going to be a flight medic! It's like an 'autopilot miracle'."

Finally, I got the chance to ask the obvious question--

"Jen, what did they say about your eye injury?"

Jen said, "that's the 'miracle' part of the miracle. The FAA vision requirements are only for the pilots. The medics and nurses can fly without perfect vision. They can even do it with only one me!"

"I just can't thank you enough. I'm like pinching myself to make sure this is real and I'm not just dreaming it."

I've been smiling ever since I talked with Jen. It's a great feeling to help a true friend reach her dreams. And now I want to share the same program that helped my friend Jen...with you!

Here are the details....

"The obstacle keeping me from buying the Flight Safety Network home study course and coaching was not knowing if it would really be worth the money.  I remember checking out the free articles on the website and reading the crew newsletters and I had a question about flight interviews –because I had one coming up and was nervous about it.

I sent Troy an email about it.  I was very impressed with his quick reply and willingness to help me personally.  His answer was a lot more than I was expecting.  So I bought the home study course and Troy ended up over-delivering by letting me “test drive” parts of the new FSN Insider club. It helped me a lot.  Flight Safety Net Insider is a great deal.  Especially when I think about how much flying means to me.  It’s hard to put an exact value on how much I would pay to fly.

FSN insider gives you everything you need. It’s easy to understand and takes hardly any time.  I can’t imagine a better system for future flight medics, nurses or pilots to follow.  If you’re serious about flying, Troy and Flight Safety Network are serious about helping you get there."

"Hi, I'm Julie,

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..."

"Before I found Flight Safety Network I was a nervous wreck about my flight interview.

I read books and researched online forums but 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. Flight Safety Network’s coaching program has taken such a load off my mind. Now I can relax and know I am going into my interviews completely prepared."


Dr. Lisa Gibson here. 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 was skeptical when I first found 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 figured there wasn’t too much I didn’t already see.

After finishing the Flight Safety Network audio course and coaching with Troy, all I can say is – Wow! I am glad I bought the training. It was definitely worth it.  It’s hard to put an amount on getting up every day and looking forward to going in to work.

The flight interview tips and fast-action worksheets were really helpful.  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.  And it worked really well.

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, Flight Safety Network!"


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."

What People Say About Us…

“Hello Flight Safety Network,

I want to say thank you. I turn 36 this year, and I currently work in hospital IT. I love aviation, LOVE IT! I have a private pilot license SEL with an instrument rating, and that has been my most fulfilling educational experience thus far.

I started flying to become a medevac pilot. I soon found that I cannot afford that path in the private sector. I thought about going the military pilot route, however I am late in the game for that as well. I still want to be air crew, and flying in the back would be just as rewarding as flying in the front for me.

I have taken an EMT course in the past and I loved the experience. This website was recommended to me from a family member that used to be a flight nurse. I appreciate the information you provide and helping me paint a realistic picture of what lies ahead. I have been apprehensive about starting new because of my age, current student loan debt, taking a pay cut to start at the bottom again, etc… However this website has been really helpful in keeping my focus on the goal.

I look forward to the information that lies ahead, and thank you again for taking the time to help others.”

“Troy and the gang helped me. I did everything in the guide (The Flight Stuff eBook), after returning back to the states after PSS work. I will now be a new Flight Medic! 3 weeks and counting till I am Flight Crew!!!”

Jayson Papa, Flight Paramedic

“Flight Safety Network helped me see what’s possible if you put your mind to it. I didn’t know what to expect since i’m still an EMT working towards paramedic.

What I learned was EMT is the best time to start learning everything about medical flying jobs. It’s just like anything else. If you know how to do it, and when to do it, you save yourself a ton of time an money. My coaching with Troy made all that clear.

It was great. Troy gets it. He’s easy to talk to and and came up with a plan that made perfect sense for my life situation and job goals. If you’re serious about getting started in an air medical job, you owe it to yourself to get in touch with Flight Safety Network. I am so glad I did. Now I have a goal and a path to follow.”

Laura Tremaine, EMT, San Anselmo, California

“Hello Flight Safety Network!

I just wanted to drop you a line and give you and all the FSN members a huge shout out!

It’s been my dream to fly since I got into EMS almost 10 years ago.  That being said, it happened!  Back in August I got hired with the Flight Service I truly wanted to work for!  I owe a lot of thanks to all the helpful folks at Flight Safety Network.

Just wanted to let you know what an impact all of the people who post words of advice and encouragement on here had on me and my career decisions and how I approached my own personal advancement.

Thanks!  clear skies and tailwinds!”

Brad Ruesch, Flight Nurse

“My coaching session with Flight Safety Network was awesome!  It confirmed the path I’m following to a profesional flight crew career is a  good one.  Troy listened to the steps I’ve taken so far, and made recommendations I can use, right now, today.  They put me on a direct  path to success.  ”The Flight Stuff” eBook and ‘Get a Flight Job’ checklist are excellent resources.  The personal coaching session was icing on the cake.”

Joseph Sparks, EMT-P, St. Petersburg, FL

“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."

Rob Baughman, FP-C, CCEMT-P, Former Flight Medic, Geisinger Life Flight, Chambersburg, PA

“Flight Safety Network gave me the exact advice I needed to start my air medical career with confidence.  Sometimes you just need to talk to someone who’s been there, done that, to know you’re on the right track.

Troy listened to my personal situation and then customized an easy-to-follow, step-by-step road map for me to reach my flight goals in the shortest time possible without messing up my family situation. Now that I have a plan I know will work, I’m so excited to get started it’s all i can think about.”

Catheleen Kloczowski, EMT, Ilion, NY

Does Insider Cost 1000's of Dollars?

It's hard to put a value on things that change your life forever. Think about it. What is getting up every day, excited to go to work . . . worth?

To us, it's priceless! And we think most people feel the same as we do. We also know plenty of wannabe flight medics, nurses and pilots who already spent a small fortune getting qualified. So spending a little more to make sure you get exactly the job you want - just makes sense.

But we also realize the typical EMT, Paramedic, Nurse, Student Pilot, etc, isn't loaded with extra spending money. So we want to keep the price at a level where as many qualified students who want to enroll - can afford to enroll.

$97 a month is what Insider will eventually cost everyone who enrolls. We believe this price (and probably more) is fair. But, that's not the price for this special-offer open enrollment period.

If you sign up before this special offer ends, you can get Insider (and the bonuses valued at $491), for only $33 dollars a month.

But that's still not the best part . . .

The best part is your price is locked for life. As long as you maintain membership, you will never pay more than $33 a month.

Frequently Asked Questions...

Is Insider Training Program for EMTs?

Yes, absolutely. Insider training is specifically designed for EMTs. If you're still working on EMT certification or pilot certification, Insider training will benefit you too, but realize getting hired will obviously take longer. Your current level of experience will directly affect how quickly you start flying.

EMTs, Medics, Nurses, Private Pilots, and Dispatchers are all great careers to transition to air medical.

What is an Open Enrollment Period?

Open enrollment periods are when we accept new students into the Flight Safety Net Insider Training Program.

We usually have two open enrollment periods a year. We also occasionally run special enrollment offers like this one today. The reason for both is to maintain our enrollment size at a level where we can give personal attention and genuinely help the most students.

Does Insider Training Get You Certified Or Licensed?

No. Flight Nurse, Flight Medic, and Pilot certification are all completely different certification programs; and each one of those programs is completely different than Insider training. We do not certify you in nursing, paramedicine, or piloting. You can get those certifications at many different places. We teach skills you need to get hired and to succeed long term in air medical.

Insider training is all the stuff they don't tell you (or teach) in nurse, medic, or pilot school - but  you need to know if you want to fly professionally. If you have questions about your situation and whether Insider is right for you - email us at -- admin @ flightsafetynet .com and we'll get right back to you with straightforward, no BS answers on whether Insider will help you or not.

Can I Get Hired Without Insider Training?

Yes, of course. Flight Safety Net Insider training is a tool to help you get hired faster and into the safest and best air medical programs in the country.

Insider training, like any tool you choose to use, simply makes the job easier. It's not mandatory. Think of it like using a power drill to build a house. You don't have to use a power drill. You can definitely build the same house using a regular screwdriver. But why?

Am I Billed Automatically?

Yes. Flight Safety Net Insider is a subscription membership. You are automatically billed every month until you cancel your subscription.

Cancelling a subscription is easy. You can send us an email anytime or cancel with a click inside your membership account.

Can I Upgrade to an Insider Membership?

Yes. If you are currently a free Flight Safety Net Subscriber, you can upgrade your account to Insider. To do this, enter the information in the "Create Your Account" form at checkout. You will have the option to keep your old username and password or create a new one.*

*Flight Safety Network no longer offers free memberships. This option is only available for original free subscribers.

Will the Price Jump Back Up to $97 a Month?

Yes. The current offer of $29 a month, is only good for the duration of this special offer.*

*Please note your subscription rate never changes once you join and maintain a continuous membership. So if you sign up today at $29 a month, you will lock in this amount, even when the cost of Insider Training Program goes up.

How Can I Be Sure Insider is for Me?

Everyone's situation is different, so it's impossible to generalize who will benefit the most from Insider training. What we know from experience, is that our training works - in some cases from "Zero to Hero" success in relatively short periods of time.

Having said that, Insider training isn't right for everyone, and we don't pretend that it is. If you're serious about flying air medical, but not sure if this is right for you, send us an email with your questions. We'll give you straight up answers and of course you'll make the final decision. You can reach us at admin @ flightsafetynet .com.
