Friggin outstanding video!!!
Thanks for posting.

You'd think the pilot would give a heading and distance to the casualty. Like 3 o'clock 75 meters. It bothered me that doc exits the A/C entered the dust and had to take a knee and hope to see the good guys...

I'm guessing not all meds can be on a Dust Off ?
Great docu!

Medics are selected after submitting a fl;ight packet/physical, to attend flight medic school. you go, then graduate, then you are a flight medic. There are different treatment protocols based on altitude etc, so you have to know how to take care of your guys.

Great docu!

Flight medics are also qualified as civi paramedics, normal medics are two levels below that in civi qualifications, holding just a basic EMT cert.
