213 “How do EMS pilots calculate fuel”

Day 213 Coffee with Kenny! Covering a great question today from Sam about how EMS pilots and how they calculate fuel. EMS helicopters are loaded down with equipment, staff, and such so we always know we have a standard amount of fuel and when you get the call, they have the patients weight so we know what to expect. So we know if we need to switch to a weight and balance. You have to burn off fuel or take some equipment off, something to balance out.
