FLY-OUT TO SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE

Registration is now closed due to security regulations.

Friday October 5th, 2018

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.

KC-135 Cargo Compartment Trainer (CCT)

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.

C-130 Fuselage Trainer (FuT)

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).

*Open only to U.S. Citizens. Proof of citizenship required. Not handicap accessible.
