Question by nealm7: Does anyone know of any jobs that require a pilot license and a paramedic license?
I am not talking about helicopter “life flight” type jobs. Those operations have a helicopter pilot “who usually doesn’t have a medical license” and a flight nurse “who usually doesn’t have a pilot license” . I am a commercial pilot and a paramedic. I am looking for a job that I could use both of my skills. (Possibly in a setting like Alaska). I have spent a lot of time researching this and all I have came up with is helicopter type operations.

No, not really. If you were a doctor, then you could do something in a place like Alaska, Africa or New Guinea, or the Australian outback if you owned your own plane. As a paramedic, you’re dreaming. It would be a good skill to have to get hired as a bush pilot, but it isn’t something you’d have an opportunity to be paid for. I flew in Alaska for many years and I know what’s what about it. However, since the majority of bush flying is seasonal, being a paramedic would be a good second job to get you through the winter until the next summer flying season, which is roughly April through September.
