Boston MedFlight chief executive Maura Hughes said in a statement that the company found fatigue was a factor and is working with a fatigue management consultant and safety consultant to review company policies and procedures.

The pilot no longer works for Boston MedFlight. The company says it flies more than 1,840 critical care transport missions annually.


This is very interesting considering Bostong Medflight was involved with a AIR21 case where they forced a pilot to exceed his DUTY TIME when they were a non-air carrier (they had the vendor pilot fired for not agreeing to work in excess of legal 14 hrs duty-time rules). 


Now, they are their own air carrier... with pilots falling asleep at the wheel apparently.   I'd really like to look at their duty-time sheets to see if they are having pilots work "under the table", so-to-speak (i.e, not counting work as duty time)
