It's often been said that a career at STAR Flight  is more of a lifestyle than a job. With all the training and educational demands, the Texas Task Force 1 deployments and the realities of working and covering for each other in a small program, it can be easy to lose the personalities behind the uniforms. Our constant focus on "scooping and swooping" leaves us little time to get to know YOU, the emergency responders, nurses, practitioners and the everyday citizens of Central Texas.

But we want you to know that behind the tan flight suits are personalities! People with families, hobbies, history and lives. People that work hard, play hard and love to help others.
