A man has been airlifted by RACQ CareFlight Rescue after an off-road motorbike accident north of Kilcoy.

The man sustained a suspected leg injury after coming off the bike.

The Sunshine Coast RACQ CareFlight Rescue helicopter was called to the scene at about 3pm with a Critical Care Doctor and Flight Intensive Care Paramedic on-board.

The 51-year-old was transferred to Nambour General Hospital.

With each rescue mission costing more than $12,500, RACQ CareFlight Rescue relies on the community for more than a third of its funding.
