The Important Work Begins Before Takeoff

On the Front Lines of Safety

When it comes to air medical transport, there is nothing more important than the safety of those on board. Together with the pilot and medical crew, Air Methods aviation maintenance technicians (AMTs) are an essential part of the team that ensures the aircraft is mission ready.

Work Schedule

Air Methods is committed to providing air medical transport resources to our communities 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. With this, our field technicians typically work non-traditional hours. Instead of a limited number of technicians being transported across the country, our technicians work at the location where the aircraft is based. This approach encourages adequate rest to ensure optimum on-duty performance. Field technicians are guaranteed 40 hours a week pay, and Air Methods strives to schedule every other weekend off.

Benefits

Air Methods provides a comprehensive benefits package for full-time employees:

  • Tuition reduction programs and reimbursement
  • Full company-paid life insurance
  • AD&D insurance
  • Short-term and long-term disability insurance
  • Business travel accident insurance
  • Health, Dental, and Vision
  • Employee assistance and benefit concierge service programs
  • Flexible spending account benefit plans
  • Voluntary legal
  • 401(k)
  • Relocation assistance

Upward Mobility

Because of the scope of Air Methods operations, technicians have many opportunities for upward career mobility. If qualified, technicians can move from field technician to lead technician, to regional management, and even to the regional maintenance director position. Additionally, if a field mechanic would like to relocate, they can choose from over 300 bases across the nation or move into a corporate position.

Availability

Technicians at a base where there is only one assigned mechanic are expected to be available during on-call hours. Single mechanic bases will support each other from other bases for on-call maintenance so our mechanics can have quality of life. At bases with multiple technicians, it is expected that off-duty technicians are reasonably available to the on-duty technicians in the event of an unscheduled maintenance event and available to work during periods of heavy scheduled maintenance.

Uniforms & Tools

Professional appearance, necessary tools, and connectivity are a must. Uniforms are supplied to all field-based technicians. Air Methods has a tool reimbursement policy and will also provide computers and cell phones to all field technicians.
