If you want to work on a jet or helicoptor as an EMT, which level do you need? Can you be just an EMT-B or do you need higher?

Also factor in the weight aspect. Many services require a maximum weight limitation as well.
Our medics can not weigh over 200 lbs.

Just joking....actually you could do both. One of our flight medics is also a pilot. I would suggest becoming a pilot first though, then you would have enough money to go to medic school. If you do it the other way, you won't be able to come up with the money for flight school
