Senior Airman Kayode Idris, 375th Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron, prepares an IV for a simulated patient on the cargo compartment trainer.

In 2017, the 375th Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron found themselves in the center of humanitarian relief efforts to help the victims caused by a series of hurricanes that devastated Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico.

Behind the rescue efforts of those real-world missions is the AE team that dedicates themselves to consistent, year-around training to provide trusted care to those who need it most.

They have found innovative ways to stay trained, including utilization of their cargo compartment trainer, which replicates the inside of a KC-135 Stratotanker.

It’s designed to provide AE crew members a realistically simulated clinical experience to challenge their thinking and problem solving skills in an environment that mimics the aircraft experience.

Additionally, this trainer is available for other AE units that may also need to become fully certified, but do not have the resources to do so.
