    I have been working at Flying Angels part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I am a Registered Nurse and began working as a Flight Nurse for Flying Angels earlier this year, 2017.
    Over several decades I have worked in hospitals and for healthcare product manufacturers.
    I joined Flying Angels because they offer a unique and distinctly diverse approach to nursing and patient care which appealed to me.
    To date Flying Angels has provided me the opportunity to provide care for and return to their home several patients with need of Medical Escort to several US Cities as well as Pakistan and Australia.
    Flying Angels Management consistently has demonstrated to me their compassion and true concern with the care for Patients they Escort.
    I wholeheartedly recommend Flying Angels as the Premier Patient Medical Escort Service for transporting patients to a treatment facility or back to their home.
    My extensive years of experience working in the healthcare industry have given me the ability to accurately determined Flying Angels as a unique employer who provides a satisfying work environment for Registered Nurses. They care about their Flight Nurses and make them feel wanted and appreciated.
    I have always been devoted to providing the best possible care for any person in need of medical care and I am proud to be working as a Flight Nurse for Flying Angels who also share my devotion for exceptional patient care.

    Cons

    Flying Angels has several Flight Nurses, into the double digits. As such they rotate Flight Escorts through the Flight Nurses on availability which at times may result in only a few flights over a couple of months.

    Advice to Management

    Please! Keep doing what you are!

    I have been working at Flying Angels (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to make a difference in my patients lives. 1:1 patient care. Autonomy and complete control over my schedule. World Travel

    Cons

    Wish the pay were higher but the fun of the job more than makes up for it. Work can be a little sporadic at times. Tends to be feast or famine.

    Advice to Management

    Flying Angels has a great corporate culture and everyone feels appreciated. Management definitely walks the walk when it comes to a "Just Culture."

    I have been working at Flying Angels (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flying Angels allows you to experience the world while providing safe and compassionate care to patients that require extra help to get from point A to point B. As an independent contractor, you can make your available hours so you have flexibility with your other obligations. If you love flying, you will love this job!

    Cons

    As expected with the job, you never really know when a mission will be sent your way. Insurance is not offered as a contractor.

    Advice to Management

    I love receiving feedback about new and exciting ventures with organization I work for. Newsletters and monthly updates are a great way to keep employees/contractors engaged.

    I have been working at Flying Angels (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've worked intermittently with Flying Angels on a variety of projects. The two things that impress me most are 1.) Management is always looking for new ideas. There is a refreshing lack of bureaucratic nonsense and an environment that supports employees and ideas. 2.) the company really cares about thier patients and their nurses

    Cons

    There isn't enough work for a full time job, but that may change as the company continues to grow.

    We do try to follow Richard Branson's philosophy about putting our employees first. Our team members are the face of our company, and most likely the only person they will actually meat. Thanks for... More

    I have been working at Flying Angels as a contractor

    Pros

    I've worked for a few different medical escort companies, and this one is by far the best. It is a FUN job with competitive pay, and truly knowledgeable management that cares about their patients AND their nurses. The owner and managers have done plenty of flying themselves, so they really do have a clear understanding of how to make a transport run smoothly. If you are scheduled to fly with a patient, the coordinator gives you timely updates on the status of your case- if you've done this kind of work you will appreciate how important this can be.
    Before you leave home you will have all the clinical information you need about your patient, and your flights and hotels have been booked. The lines of communication are open and ongoing, the importance of which cannot be overstated with this kind of work. With other companies I have found myself in some nightmare situations where I'm on the other side of the planet and can't find anyone at home base to even acknowledge me. This would never happen with Flying Angels, they take care of their contractors, making it so much easier to care for patients and so much less stressful to travel.
    Although you are usually alone when traveling with a patient, you never feel alone because you know the flight coordinator (management) has your back. They track you from the time you pick your patient up until the time you drop them off and are ALWAYS there to help with any travel or clinical issues.

    Cons

    There are cons that are inherent to the business, unpredictable schedules, sometimes needing to leave home with very little notice, being at the mercy of the airlines and the weather etc, but these are things that are true with any commercial flight nurse job. If these are things that would make the position unworkable for you, then you shouldn't even attempt it. I'm giving only 4 stars for work/life balance because this job throws your work/life balance off, that's just how it is. You need to have very understanding friends and family because your personal life will get tossed around for sure.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to write my reviews from 35,000 ft please.

    I have been working at Flying Angels as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I get to travel all over the world to places I maybe wouldn't have gone on vacation. The clients are always the most interesting people that I wouldn't have had the opportunity to get to know otherwise. I work when I want. The base camp always has my back from takeoff to landing. (Pun intended). Most fun job that also pays you. Don't tell my boss but I'd do it for free!

    Cons

    Not getting to know the other colleagues. ( such great accomplished Nurses) I'd love to hear their stories.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! You're doing it right.
