The med crew gets to act like total A++ and have rude and obnoxious behavior and get away with it.

And if a Pilot were to do anything close to their behavior they're asking for his head on a pike. Got to love EMS

If I wasn't so old I'd be looking at the airlines.

Is old enough to have more maturity than their med crew.

If you think everyone else is the a-hole, that means that you are probably the a-hole?

Yep, I just go in preflight, brief and go hide in my room. I don't interact with them and I'm happier that way. I just let them run the show and document it when they turn down a flight for wx. Best to let them make an jerk out of themselves in front of everyone and you be the professional guy in the room.

How about instead of doing your preflight and just "hiding" yourself like a child predator, maybe do a preflight and have a legit discussion with the crew?  We are grown adults, if you don't see it that way, make the proper notifications.  That tells me you would rather avoid confrontation which, screw that-I guarantee, I'm a crash, if you lived, my family would kill u before I did.  Just because you might have more time in an aircraft, I can GUARANTEE, medcrew have seen the downfalls and poor communication with those in the back who you may or may not save your butt in the future....  Bottom line, my hands aren't on the controls so-blame the med crew all you want Uber driver of the sky-literally, part 135, transport on demand.  You are just as replaceable as we are so shut the hell up....

Well, obviously you must be a troll. Anyone who works in EMS knows that the maturity level of most of these nurses or medics is fairly low. They sleep around when they work at their hospitals or fire stations. They spend all their time on social media, texting or calling people spreading rumors. Nonstop complaining about anyone and everyone. They know better than the Dr’s, program managers, they know more about wx than the pilots, ect. It’s just downright painful. They think they are better than pilots and mechanics and don’t feel safe letting you start the Helo until they have done their walk around and feel comfortable for you to start up. They find any way possible to turn down a flight because their shift is almost over, they are tired, have classes or just wanna sleep. I don’t want to deal with their childish behavior at all. I honestly come in preflight the Helo, check my weather, check maintenance, ect. I go in and Brief with the crew and tell them the status of the wx, Helo, my health, ect and ask them if they have any concerns like fatigue, ect. Then I go to my room and wait for the call. It’s not worth the drama to get involved with them because if you hurt their feelings your fired, if you disagree with them your fired, if you don’t turn down the flight because they don’t want to fly your a safety risk and fired, they own you and if you don’t think so. If they don't want to fly t all, I don't press them. I just document it and move on. Your gravely mistaken and will not last long. I get along with almost all my medcrews but there are some that will try anything to get you fired because they don’t like you or make them work. You need to know that if your right, your still not right unless they and the med program agrees with you. Just come in and do what they want. Not worth the disagreement with them. You will loose every time because this is not the airlines.

".... You are just as replaceable as we are so shut the hell up.... " Again, LOLZ. The recent pay-raises, signing, and retention bonuses don't seem to indicate that, do they? :-)

Well if you are a HEMS pilot and not into social media, at least in the lower 48 states, you are guilty of 110% of the definition of a HEMS pilot at the bar because It was preshift, facebook, Instagram Etc so smile!

It has always been more of a High School type of popularity contest.  Until the operators actually exercise real operational control, it will continue to be this way.

Imagine if the airlines were to allow the same treatment from the cabin crew.  There would be no pilots left.

Smile, nod, agree, laugh at their jokes and don't F up too badly & one can have a long career in HAA.

If you are one of the "golden child" pilots, you can get away with just about anything.

Some pilot is certainly going to bring up discrimination in the workplace assured by so much evidence he or she will be awarded one billion dollars in lifetime annuity.  Can't wait to be deposed.

Don't think it can't happen.

Sweet, In some of the areas of the PAC West, If i knew they were touching my family, I'd refuse...Been around air medical for a long time and truly respect pilots who respect us as a team as work as such But it's seems like things have become a bit skewed these days....
