For the July 2008 Hangar Chat we invited the LifeStar team located at Hartford Hospital to visit us at Northeast Helicopters. It was a pleasure learning about EMS flying from these seasoned professionals.
Here are a few pictures of Rich Manger (Lifestar Pilot) answering questions for the students interested in a career in EMS.
And for the grand finale the on duty staff actually flew the BK 117 into Ellington and let the students explore while discussing the use of some of the equipment.
Here they are conducting a standard EMS approach as they would on an actual scene.
The amount of Technology in the aircraft is amazing. This helicopter has the capability of transporting two patients at a time.
Thank you so much Rich and the Lifestar team for visiting us and sharing with our students! Good luck and fly safe.
