Rx for HEMS: Faster and lower
By Mark Huber
How low can you go? (And live.) That has been the perpetual question as the FAA continues to work with the helicopter EMS industry to develop low-altitude infrastructure in the national airspace system, including better weather-reporting tools, low-altitude routes and point-in-space instrument approaches. The work has been well underway for more than a decade, but there is much left to do to ensure that EMS helicopters can fly the most expeditious and safest instrument routes and approaches with the best weather information.

Are you prepared for a travel emergency?
I Fly America

Before you leave on any upcoming travels, make sure that you are covered by the IFA Travel Insurance Program because there are hundreds of circumstances that could cause you to cancel your trip, return home early or force you to seek emergency medical treatment while traveling.

Two distinguished Vietnam War veterans — pilots with 167 combat missions between them — were reunited with the plane they flew through hostile territory in Southeast Asia during the late 1960s. When the men walked into the Pacific Hangar at the Palm Springs Air Museum, they looked up in awe at the newly renovated Republic F-105D Thunderchief — a supersonic fighter-bomber that had been slated for demolition before the air museum stepped in and rescued it from an inglorious fate.
