Since our inception in 1989 our goals have included providing quality educational opportunities, fostering team work, and building recognition for communicators as professionals within flight programs. NAACS also provides a valuable networking resource within the air medical industry.
Nominations are now open for the 2014 Communicator of the Year Award.

February 26, 2014: NAACS is pleased to announce its association with the Helicopter Flight Training Center in Shreveport, LA. The organization looks forward to the development and utilization of the "communications lab" at the new facility. Communications simulation and scenario training offered at the lab will allow the student to explore advanced and complex problems. Currently a 2-3 tier advanced course curriculum is being entertained for the participating communicators. The organization's commitment to providing local classes will remain unchanged.
The U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) today issued a final rule that requires helicopter operators, including air ambulances, to have stricter flight rules and procedures, improved communications, training, and additional on-board safety equipment. The rule represents the most significant improvements to helicopter safety in decades and responds to government's and industry's concern over continued risk in helicopter operations. More Here
