What's a Flight Surgeon?
 
 
 
According to airforce.com: Flight Surgeons are primary care physicians for pilots and crewmembers traveling in air or space. These physicians discover, prevent and manage the various physiological responses that result from encountering exceptional environments, enabling our Airmen to stay in peak condition and continue their jobs in the air.
 
Flight Surgeons' duties also include flying in the aircraft of their assigned squadron. This does not mean that the physician is also a pilot although there are a some who have been trained as both a physician and a pilot. Whether trained as a pilot or not, all flight surgeons must have some familiarity with the aircraft. They must also log hours in the aircraft on a regular basis. Depending on the squadron, they may even be allowed to control the aircraft briefly or assist with navigation and weapons simulations.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Dr. PK's Thoughts:

 
Dr. PK was fortunate to have been assigned to Nellis Air Force Base near Las Vegas, NV. Nellis is home to the Fighter Weapons School, the USAF Thunderbirds, and Red Flag air warfare exercises. In addition, there are many elite squadrons flying many types of aircraft assigned to Nellis. Dr. PK logged hundreds of flight hours in multiple types of aircraft including helicopters, trainer jets, cargo planes, tanker planes, AWACs. He also had the privilege of flying in several fighter aircraft including the F-16 Fighting Falcon, F-15 Eagle, F-15E Strike Eagle, and F-4G Wild Weasel.
