Thousands of Flight Hours
Every REVA pilot has thousands of hours of flight experience and is an air ambulance veteran. Pilots go through extensive training on an annual basis and receive ongoing training every six months. Prior to every medical flight, pilots participate in a risk-assessment analysis in order to be prepared for potential challenges that may arise. Just like the Scouts say – always be prepared. We are accident-free and have a spotless safety record.
All pilots are skilled in assisting air medical crews, they exceed FAA Part 135 training requirements, and each pilot in command holds an Airline Transport License. Our Lear Jet Captains have logged at least 5000 flight hours and our turboprop Captains have at least 2000 multi-engine flight hours. In addition the flight crews have initial and recurrent training through professional pilot training programs.
