FAQs for Transitioning Military Servicemembers

Slide 1

James Vanotti

U.S. Army

“I’m currently a Captain serving as a battery commander with 2-222nd Field Artillery with the Utah Army National Guard. I have no experience from the active-duty standpoint, so I may have a much different experience than others. Air Methods provides a lot of good educational opportunities and benefits that supplement what veterans get with the Post 9/11 GI Bill. For those serving in the National Guard or Reserves, the educational benefits from AMC can augment those received through state or federal benefits. It’s easy for servicemembers in the Guard or Reserves to request time off or swap shifts to accommodate drill weekends, Annual Training, and military schools and training.”

Jess Fecteau

U.S. Air Force

I fell in love with critical care transport in the military and I wanted to take a more active role in it in my civilian life. Air Methods was suggested to me by another flight nurse. The company has been great to work with for drill weekends and any other trainings/exercises that I need to attend. They are understanding and supportive in all aspects!

Anthony Amador

U.S. Navy Veteran

I served in the Navy as a Radio Operator Electronic Technician on Nuclear Submarines. I drove a couple nuclear submarines and it is no different than instrument flying in a helicopter. No windows, or doors, driving strictly by instrument panels. The living quarters are just as tight than being inside a helicopter. I started my aviation career outside the military thanks to the Montgomery GI Bill. I joined Air Methods because it is very veteran friendly. Being a national pool pilot for over a year now, I've had the privilege to work with multiple employees such as pilots, mechanics, paramedics, nurses and so forth that are veterans. The transition going from one new base to another as a pool pilot becomes easier to break the ice with med crews when you find out they are veterans as well.

Celena Petrucci

U.S. Navy Veteran

“Flying is the best EMS job I’ve ever had. Our managers are very supportive, and I truly feel like part of a team with a common goal for the first time since I left the Navy. Air Methods actively recruits Veterans, and the environment provides a seamless transition to civilian life.”

- Celena Petrucci, Flight Paramedic

Bryce Anderson

U.S. Army Retired

“I loved being an Army MEDEVAC pilot, so it makes sense to join the Air Methods team to get back to doing what I love to do. The Army sets the standard for military MEDEVAC and Air Methods sets the standard for civilian MEDEVAC. I prefer to associate with the very best and Air Methods has that reputation.”

- Bryce Anderson, Rotor Wing Pilot

Pete Klein

U.S. Army Veteran

“During my interviews and reading about the company, it was apparent that the company and I had shared values. There was a lot going on about other air carriers offering meaningless memberships and that just did not sit well with me. I felt that if Air Methods would treat strangers with respect, how much better would it be if they knew me? I have yet to be disappointed. My teammates are amazing! My manager provides everything that I can think of to safely execute my job. When I have questions or a hard decision to make, leadership and teammates provide the support I need to make safe, smart, and timely decisions. I am glad that I am part of an organization that tells me their top priority is that I go home to my family at the end of every shift!”

- Pete Klein, Rotor Wing Pilot

Save our air medical resources (SOAR)

Veterans across the country experience numerous barriers to health care and a new change being considered by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs could leave them, particularly those in rural and underserved communities, at even greater risk in the event of an emergency.  The Veterans Health Administration has proposed regulations to cut its reimbursement rate for emergency air medical services, impacting access to critical care for the approximately 1500 Veterans Air Methods transports per year.  Save Our Air Medical Resources or SOAR is urging the VA to delay adjusting its reimbursement rate until cost data has been collected so that it can take into account the actual costs of transport. Our veterans are counting on us to preserve access to these lifesaving flights.  Visit the Take Action page to join SOAR in contacting both the VA and your Member of Congress about this important issue.
