From the pilot's perspective, Lead Pilot Vincent Aprea likes the handling of the H135. "Naturally, every pilot wants more speed and power. But this helicopter has handled all our missions very well with no bad habits," says Aprea, who especially appreciates the safety of the fenestron tailrotor. "We load and unload thru the rear clam shell doors so the safety of the fenestron is obvious," he adds. The H135 is equipped with a complete avionics suite including Garmin GMS 200, Garmin 430, Garmin 530, with WAAS, TCAS and HTAWS.

Aprea has been with the SkyHealth program since, and he loves the mission. He retired from the NYPD Aviation Unit and made the transition to Med-Trans within a few days. After an initial 2-week orientation training, Aprea joined the line. Even though he came with a lot of flight experience, Aprea admits the training was tough. Med-Trans conducts quarterly checkrides and mandates annual recurrent training in an H135 simulator. Although missions currently flown are VFR-only, all pilots are required to maintain IFR proficiency. Proudly explaining the company's support of this policy, Aprea says, "When we return from a mission, the company encourages us to fly IFR approaches and make sure we are not just current but more importantly, proficient."
Based in a coastal area, Aprea believes IFR proficiency is a must. He adds, "The Long Island/Connecticut weather can change in minutes and we really need to be prepared to meet any challenge. Should we encounter an inadvertent IMC situation, we are completely proficient and equipped to meet the emergency safely."
All missions must have a formal and comprehensive risk assessment completed before the aircraft departs. The risk assessment must be submitted to the Med-Trans Operations Center, where it is reviewed by expert personnel.
Aprea appreciates the extra set of eyes reviewing his assessment.
