One of the cool things about this job, other than flying around in a multi-million dollar aircraft with the best equipment saving lives, is that we are always getting new toys. Most air-medical helicopters are really focusing on safety, and therefore are obtaining night vision goggles (NVG's) for the pilot and crew to wear during night flights. I got some ground school when I went out west to train, but have not had them available for normal use until now. So last night we did go up with goggles so I could get used to wearing them in flight. The batter mounts to the back of my helmet, and the goggles flip down over my eyes (I swear its JUST like in the movies!). I was amazed at all the shit I could see from 1200 feet. The pilot said summer is funny cuz we can see all the people skinny dipping in their backyards!
