Think what you will about them but find out how many people have been killed in all the air crashes they have had

Obviously you are an idiot and not a real paramedic since you can't even spell it. The amount of crashes that they have had are well below the industry standard, and they have more flight hours annually than any company on record. I have worked for them for 5 years, and I feel confident in their safety policies and procedures. I would and do trust them with my life every day.

Below is a quote from a Popular Mechanics article. Something to think about..........

"An industry created to save lives actually has the highest rate of fatal accidents in all of commercial aviation. In fact, working onboard a medical helicopter is the most dangerous profession in America, with a higher risk of death than fishermen, steel workers or loggers."

Does anyone know a helicopter mechanic named John? I'm not sure what his last name is but I think it starts with an 'N'.

AirEvac tried fixed wing very early on in their corporate life. It just simply was not a "fit" for the company and the whole concept was dropped. In a couple of areas it was just shut down, in one it was sold off.
Think about it - Why Poplar Bluff as opposed to any of the other bases?
So again, no. It is not happening. But thank you for your valuable input.
LOL you don't know what you are talking about. The Poplar Bluff base has a fixed wing aircraft!!!

Can't give any hard data? Just blowing some hot air without anything to back it up....come on back it up. Do you know how? Can you find it?
I don't work for them but I will guarantee you they have saved way more lives then they have taken.

Why doesn't someone honor some people that helped start airevac. Say Ed North the recently passed away, he wrote a big check to buy the first helicopter and hire employees.

I know the public only sees the pilot and crew when Air Evac is called, but I want to point something out that no body sees. I want to give a big shout out to the mechanics. They are some true unseen heros. These mechanics give everything to those base to make sure the pilot and crews have a safe helicopters to fly to pick up everyone. The Mechanic makes sure that the crew and the person needing the ride gets there safe. They work all day and get calls all hours of the night to come in to fix something that broke. I have a family memeber that works for Air Evac and I have seen him give up his time, his familys time and miss a lot of life because he has been called in to fix the helicopter not just his but other bases. These unsung heros are never posted on a sign or a flyer or gave credit but everyone has seen their work and thousands have even rode in it. So as you give the flight crew respect don't for get about those Men and Women that keep that helicopter flying because without that mechanic there would be no flight crew or helicopter there to pick you up. To my family member at Air Evac every time we see a helicopter flying to or from a accident we smile knowing that you was there to make that flight possible. God Bless and Thanks
