NVFC Expresses Support for FAA Rules on Helicopter Air Ambulance Operations

On September 16, the NVFC along with 16 other organizations that belong to the Joint National EMS Leadership Forum sent a letter to Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Administrator Michael Huerta expressing support for rules that the FAA issued recently (Docket No. FAA-2010-0982 related to 14 CFR Parts 91, 120 and 135) on helicopter air ambulance operations. The letter also urges Administrator Huerta, “…to work with stakeholders to complete the necessary guidance materials to avoid any further delays and to fully implement the new regulations in their entirety in April 2015,” the earliest date by which they could be implemented.
