NEMSPA surveys are Your Opportunity to be heard in high places [03/13/2012]
We are not insensitive to concerns about being "Surveyed to Death".

So, we want to remind our members and website visitors that NEMSPA surveys, and the survey-links that we host on our web page for other researchers, are selected for their relevance to the safety of air medical transport operations. Surveys designed and conducted by NEMSPA will be clearly identified as such.

From time to time, we will also host a survey link for other researchers when the survey supports our primary goal of enhancing safety and excellence in the air medical transport industry. As a condition of hosting links to such surveys, NEMSPA asks the researchers to share the data with NEMSPA as soon as feasible after the completion of the survey, so that we can share it with our membership and website visitors.

Please share your experience and expertise by participating in these surveys.
"MET TOWERS: A Mine Field For Low Flying Aircraft" [04/23/2012]
As reported by Bill McGinnis, Omniflight Base Manager (now Air Methods) in Sioux Falls, South Dakota
There are companies putting up "Met Towers" in the Upper Midwest and other parts of the country. These towers are 198 feet tall, not painted, and very fast to erect. They have only 4 guide wires on the tower. They are used to gather wind data for the feasibility of erecting large Wind Turbines for the production of electricity. These towers stay up for a few days to a year to gather data. They can be put up in just a few hours. They are not marked and do not have lights on them. The FAA pointed out that they had noted three of these towers along about a 50 mile stretch of a South Dakota highway. As obstruction lighting is not required for towers less than 200', some FAA POI's have suggested a push to have the towers painted to make them more visible. These towers could be a real hazard at a scene or even near a hospital.
