“There will be family members that want to ride with a patient and you see that a lot with children being transported,” said Mosley. “Sometimes when a parent is too distraught we can not allow them to ride for the safety of those on board because they might hinder the pilot.”

He said the helicopter is usually requested by the hospital or EMS and is often put on standby.

“This is where they prep the helicopter and fly out to the location just in case they are needed and they don’t loose time trying to decide,” said Mosley. “It’s better to be there and not needed than to be needed and not there.”

After Mosley was done speaking, members and visitors of the club was able to take a tour of the AIRHeart helicopter and talk with the visiting pilots.
