LifeFlight Australia is a world leader in aeromedical care, with a core purpose to save lives and serve the community.

The organisation delivers on its purpose every single day, through the provision of the RACQ LifeFlight Rescue service and the seamlessly coordinated suite of aviation and medical capabilities.

The RACQ LifeFlight Rescue service
