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.

In flying and in other areas of your life, the guru's say the number one word that should be coming out of your mouth.. is no! When it comes to making someone else happy and getting yourself in trouble, you have to do what is right for you and go with your gut. You can't make everyone happy, and you can't say yes all the time. Of course you can and you should, but not when it compromises number one! So contemplate the reasons why you are saying yes first!
