AIR METHODS CORP Pilot Rotor Wing - Knoxville, IA in KNOXVILLE, Iowa
It's night. The phone rings. There has been a multi-car accident on the local highway. There are known ejections and multiple traumas, so EMS requests an automatic stand-by. You've done your risk assessment based on the mission facts. Conditions look good, all systems go. The adrenaline is rushing. You take off, headed to the scene. The work will challenge your aeronautical flying skills and decision-making, but it's a rewarding, satisfying career that can have a profound effect on patients and their families. Air Methods believes its training program is superior to other EMS operators and includes extensive classroom, field and aircraft instruction with ongoing computer based learning.IFR EMS OperationsAircraft: BH429Stipend: $10,000.00General Requirements:* Commercial & Instrument license (for category and class of aircraft)* ATP rating in category meets this requirement.* First OR Second Class FAA Medical certificate required.* Pilots must have flown in category within the previous 24 monthsFlight Hours (Flight time must be verified through reliable documentation)Visual Flight Rules (VFR) Program:* 2000 total flight hours with minimum of 1500 flight hours in category* 1000 hours PIC in category* 500 hours of rotor wing turbine time* 200 hours of cross-country flight time, at least 50 hours of which were at night* 100 hours unaided night as PIC* 50 hours total actual or hood instrument time in flight and in category (simulator time does not count)Instrument Flight rules (IFR) Program:* 2500 total flight hours with a minimum of 2000 hours in category* 1000 hours PIC in category* 500 hours of cross-country flight time, 100 hours of night flight time* 75 hours of actual or simulated instrument time in category and at least 50 hours which were in flight in an aircraft including 20 hours in actual instrument conditions in categoryEqual Opportunity Employer/Protected Veterans/Individuals with DisabilitiesThe contractor will not discharge or in any other manner discriminate against employees or applicants because they have inquired about, discussed, or disclosed their own pay or the pay of another employee or applicant.
