The 375th AES is one of four active duty AE squadrons in the Air Force--two are located stateside and two overseas. They train, mobilize, and deploy aboard C-130, C-17, C-21, and KC-135 aircraft. In the past, the Air Force used dedicated aircraft for medevac (C-141s and C-9s) but now these teams can configure any transport aircraft--even the host wing’s C-21 can support a patient transport.
Certified in 2016, the CCT is modeled after a KC-135 and allows Aeromedical Evacuation Care Managers to accomplish clinically-focused training and M-coded events, which may be credited during the mission as outlined in center-specific certification letters.
Certified in 2017, the FuT is used for ground, proficiency, aircrew flight equipment, and other mission-specific training events to include Aeromedical Evacuation set-up, patient loading/offloading, aircraft egress, and various simulated flight emergencies (rapid decompression, smoke and fumes, and fire/explosion response).
