We staff three helicopters, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Each helicopter crew consists of a Pilot, Paramedic and Nurse. These aviation and medical professionals are supported by a dedicated team on the ground as well.
All Mercy Flight Pilots are highly skilled and have excellent safety records.
In additional to first-rate pilots, our medical crew members are also top-notch.
The mission of Mercy Flight wouldn't be a reality without the dedication of our medical directors. These physicians are ready, around the clock, to take the call when necessary. Thank you: Anthony J. Billittier IV - M.D., Kathleen A. Lillis - M.D., Christopher Tanski - M.D., and Joshua J. Lynch, DO, EMT-P.
