Skip speaks on respiratory assist devices to the airline industry educating them on allowed and disallowed devices as well as common problems and misconceptions that occur during the travel process. He spoke at the DOT Disability Forum in Cairo, Egypt in December 2009 and Miami, FL in 2010 Retired as a 29-year veteran Fire/Paramedic Lieutenant of the City of Norfolk, VA Fire Rescue service, Skip began his EMS career in the volunteer rescue squad. During his professional EMS career, he was a Neonatal-Transport paramedic with the Children's Hospital of The Kings Daughters Transport Team and was one of the original Flight Paramedics on the Nightingale trauma helicopter in Norfolk, VA. Skip has been a private pilot since 1976 and the founder of Advanced Aeromedical in 1981. The early days were primarily long-haul critical care patients on turbo-props and jets to all points around the globe and he still serves that clientele. Skip's company enables oxygen dependent people to realize their dream as they travel around the globe. This includes logistical coordination for equipment, oxygen and support for trips all over the world. Whether it be an urgently needed POC on the other side of the country for a flight in the morning, or a 10 liter per minute client going on a cruise, he and his staff will calmly and methodically evaluate and provide a solution to the situation in short order.
