Welcome! You are interested in being a flight paramedic. You have come to the right place. A common question EMT’s and paramedics ask me is, “How do I become a flight paramedic ?” At the EMS Today Conference in Baltimore March 4-6, 2010 I had no less than 50 people a day asking how to become a flight paramedic at the International Association of Flight Paramedic’s (IAFP) booth. This blog is being created to answer your questions and provide reliable information that will help YOU become a flight medic sooner, rather than later.
I have over 25 years of EMS experience including Flight Paramedic Service Manager, EMS Educator, EMS Supervisor and Critical Care Transport Paramedic Instructor. I am currently President of the National Association of Flight Paramedics and am active representing our industry in Washington, DC. Safety hearings.
Please leave a question you have about how to become a flight paramedic
