NEMSPA Wire Strike Seminar


NEMSPA (National EMS Pilots Association) will host a wire strike avoidance seminar on Sunday, October 18, in Long Beach, California. Seating is limited.

NEMSPA, August 10, 2015 - NEMSPA (National EMS Pilots Association) is encouraging all air crews and pilots who operate in the low level environment to attend a one day “Flying in the Wire and Obstruction Environment and Crew Resource Management” seminar on Sunday, October 18, in Long Beach, California.

This highly acclaimed presentation by Robert (Bob) Feerst, of Utilities Aviation Specialists, is being held in conjunction with this year’s Air Medical Transport Conference.

“This is an ideal course for any flight team that operates in the wire environment,” says Kurt Williams, President of NEMSPA, “including air medical, utility, news gathering and law enforcement operators. Attending this course will shed new light on a very significant threat we deal with on a day to day basis.”

Half of the day will be dedicated to teaching essential elements of CRM as it applies specifically to the wire environment, with the remaining half focusing on wire detection and avoidance.

“I was surprised at how much information about low level hazards could be productively discussed in an 8-hour class. It was obvious that Robert Feerst of U.A.S. has long lived in the low level and wire environment, and knows what he is talking about,” said Bill, a wildlife resources and agricultural pilot. Michelle, a flight nurse, said “I was amazed at what I didn’t know about wires and obstructions in our airspace. By understanding the human factors, communications styles and the science of vision, I have learned principles that I can apply daily, and which will contribute to the safety of my crew and my patients.”

For more information about this course, visit crm.nemspa.org. Seating is limited. Early bird and group discounts are available. Members of AAMS, ASNTA, IAFCCP, AMPA, NAACS and NEMSPA receive additional discounts.
