Jason Chase of Lone Jack, pilot for the Sedalia Air Evac Lifeteam base, recently celebrated a milestone in his career in the air ambulance industry – his 50th flight with Air Evac Lifeteam.
Chase has been with the company since November 2012, and was awarded his 50th mission “wings” in celebration of his achievement. Prior to joining Air Evac Lifeteam, he served his country in the U.S. Army.
“I joined the Army because I felt like I could make a difference for my country,” Chase said. “That was a big part of why I wanted to go into the air medical industry, too. I didn’t just want to clock in and do a job – I wanted to continue to make a difference.”
