PHPA To Address Congress on HEMS Issues
PHPA will be testifying before a Congressional Committee looking into the ongoing problems in the HEMS industry. This is a great opportunity for the voices of the working line pilots to be heard but we need your input ASAP. The hearing is scheduled for 22 April which gives us little time to compile your concerns and present them. You can add your personal concerns, ideas, wishes, etc to the discussion online at http://www.autorotate.com/portal/DiscussionForums/tabid/88/aff/50/aft/112695/afv/topic/Default.aspx

The latest Virtual Flight Surgeons Newsletter is attached to this newsletter in PDF Format. It also can be read online at www.autorotate.org
Note from a PHPA member:
I sent a request for consultation to the Virtual Flight Surgeons at about 1300 today. By 1600 I had a phone call and an answer. What a great benefit. Thanks for your work in putting this together.
Tony Fonze, our long time friend and editor of Autorotate has moved on to bigger things. We sorely miss Tony however we are working furiously to recover from his departure and hope to be back on track with our publication schedule soon. ALL members will receive an additional six months of Autorotate plus any issues already missed in an effort to make up for any inconvenience this may have caused.
