we'll be teaching landing zone, heli safety and hot load training.
basically teach a ground course, start the aircraft and the med crew will do practice loads carrying in a patient under the rotors, securing the litter and the doors. then i get all the fun of giving quick rides to the patrol they load while the groups still on the ground can take turns using the radio to give an lz brief and talk about whats going on. i pretty much get an hour to go joy ride and shoot approaches into the ski area.


we only do medical flights. we will on request help out with search and rescue and avalanche shuttle but its case by case.
