The Crew
Cox Air Care

At Cox Air Care we are very proud of our pilots and flight crew. In addition to the many credentials, certifications and licensures, our crew members are involved in or manage projects above and beyond what is a required for the flight program. For example, all Cox Air Care pilots are ATP rated and have thousands of hours in aviation. They also participate in public relations activities, safety events and continuing education.

We are also proud of our maintenance staff. These Cox Air Care members operate far from the scene of an accident/emergency, but our mission would not be possible without their abilities to keep the helicopter ready.

The volumes of clinical and classroom education that the medical crews bring to this program are both varied and impressive. Many nurses have attained certification in emergency, critical care or flight nursing; and some have certification in all three. Bachelor's and master's degrees are also not uncommon. Several of the flight paramedics are nationally registered or have become critical care paramedics. This, combined with the efforts of the maintenance staff and pilots, make for a winning team.
