Hi everyone,

I did a quick search and couldn't find anything under any of the forums on this particular topic. I currently have my Private with instrument rating but my ultimate goal is to fly the MEDEVAC helicopters (particularly Maryland State Police). I was wondering if anyone out there was in this line of work and had any suggestions or hints on getting into this field. Additionally, I am looking to do it with no military history (yes, I know it's harder). Thank you in advance!

You probably know this by now, but first obviously your helicopter ratings, instrument and commercial. You didn't specify if your current ratings were fixed wing or rotor. If MSP is what you want, they do fill vacant pilot spots with civilian pilots, so the non-military thing, you could probably get by. I recall their mins being somewhere around 2000 PIC rotor wing time or so. Anything you would want to know is at http://www.mspaviation.org/frames.asp

Good luck- MSP is an excellent place to go for this, their program is among the best in the world.

Yes, maybe I should have clarified, I am currently fixed wing so I need to do my rotorcraft ratings. I believe MSP's minimums are around 3,000 hours right now but I wasn't sure if that was a good number or if they are actually hiring pilots with much more time.
