. Also, i believe Scott Sampey, AEL's Vice President of Business Development, is our former Director of Field Operations. small world, huh?
I appreciate you letting your everyone know. I and the rest of the company appreciate it. This is the first crew members that AEL has lost since there start in 1985. We all are in this together and I love being a part of an organization that helps people like our companies do. It is unfortunate that this kind of a thing happens but it does and if your in this business long enough your going to have to deal with it. Again I and AEL really appreciate you and Stat Medevac for your support.
I live in Texas and I didn't know any of the people that passed but this company has such a sense of family it has affected everyone. I kind of deal with this type of a thing quietly and give them the respect the deserve. I am a pilot as well and I have known several people that have died and its never them( There in a good place) that gets me its there families the spouses and children. AEL is taking care of the families and most employees have donated money and time to these families.
It is a small world especially in the helicopter business. I will send a email to the human resources lady and let them know that Stat Medevac sends there condolences.
Thanks again, Dean
