The National EMS Pilots Association is the only professional association in the US that is dedicated to the representation and professional development of EMS pilots. NEMSPA is positioned to serve as a voice for pilots in the air medical transport industry, and within state and federal governmental agencies that oversee and regulate air medical operations in the US.

Members and our Board of Directors discuss and collaborate on identifying the issues that are of great importance to air medical pilots and programs, and work to develop and suggest mitigations to the industry as a whole. Members take part, in various ways, to our primary purpose - the advancement of operational safety and the professional development of pilots.
