My followup book to TSBM will be a comprehensive look inside the Air Medical industry, its history, growth, operation and challenges. Air Med--People Flying People explores an industry dedicated to helping others in crisis. It shows the work of airborne emergency medical crews in all aspects of the work, how they do it, how often, and where they perform their lifesaving tasks. The story is told from their point of view. It's about why they do a job that puts them at somewhat more risk than the rest of their peers in ICUs, ERs, ground ambulance runs and hospital floor units. Pilots fly Air Med instead of traffic reporting, offshore flying, corporate aviation and the like for similar reasons: it's about people. Look for Air Med--People Flying People soon.
