Vigorous training vital for proficiency aboard aircraft

The 932nd Airlift Wing’s Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron flew aboard a packed and busy medical practice training flight on Sept. 23, 2017, in a C-17 aircraft. The plane was provided courtesy the 512th Airlift Wing from Dover Air Force Base, Delaware. After taking off from Scott Air Force Base, Illinois, the crew broke into smaller sections and talked about situations and then read through the Air Force Instructions covering medical issues. Several members played the part of patients (lying down) to test others on how they would respond to symptoms. The C-17 Globemaster III plane has a maximum payload capacity of 170,900 pounds and its maximum gross takeoff weight is 585,000 pounds. The aeromedical training featured interaction and communication between three reserve wings, including the 932nd AW, the 512th AW and the 911th Airlift Wing with AES crew members out of Pittsburgh.
