FAA rule doc link

There is also an article in VerticalMag that highlights some of the changes to the HEMS rules.

Vert Ref article link

The change that interested me most was the visibility changes. Now 1/2mile day and 1mile night for VFR ops in Class G airspace. Anyone else read through these and have any opinions?

I am not a helicopter pilot yet but I think it's great. I hear about too many incidents that are because the crew left in bad weather they knew was there. I personally feel it will help a lot.

I like the part where all flights with med crew will be under Part 135 duty and time limits. Med crew won't be stopping at the cafeteria while you're outside waiting to get back home before you time out.

After 22 APR 2014 either we all get back in time or they'll probably be driving home in a rental car while I fly back solo Part 91. Of course 95% of the crew I fly with are great so it might only affect very few of them.

Self discipline is when you do something that you know is right even though you don't want to do it. As a professional and safe pilot you have to maintain control over your desires & emotions. Have INTEGRITY and great WORK ETHIC and you'll succeed in life.
