Med-Trans Aviation Training Program

Med Trans is proud to offer a comprehensive training program for new-hire candidates and veteran MTC aviators alike.

New-hire training includes a complete review of FAR’s, aviation weather, navigation, airspace, aeromedical, aerodynamics, and blood borne pathogens.  Aircraft topics include an in depth study of systems, emergency and normal procedures, performance planning, limitations and weight and balance.  New-hire flight training consists of day, night, instrument and since 2006, night vision goggles.

MTC recurrent flight and ground training has always been well beyond the minimums required by the FAA and most other operators.  Ground training is currently performed by monthly quizzes covering every aspect of Part 135 operations.  Our flight training is conducted every 90 days under all conditions, day, unaided night, instrument and NVG.  Since all MTC aircraft are fully instrumented, an integral part of every recurrent training session includes precision and non-precision approaches.

We are especially pleased with our annual Crew Resource Management training.  These classes are taught to all pilots, medical crewmembers, communication specialists and administrators by professionals with years of experience in this field.    

While the current structure of our training program is expensive, MTC realizes the importance of maintaining the peak proficiency of our pilots.  This instills confidence not only in themselves but their medical crew as well.  By increasing PIC proficiency, we reduce risk and keep safety a top priority.
