In 1979, the first patient airlift was completed. Fast forward to today and LifeFlight has helped over 74,000+ people.
It is fair to say that this last year has presented LifeFlight Australia’s most challenging circumstances, as the entire LifeFlight family traversed our response to the operational and financial impacts of the COVID-19 global pandemic.
Between July 2021 and June 2022, our dedicated rotary and fixed wing crews, along with our RACQ LifeFlight Rescue Critical Care Doctors, came to the aid of 6,825 people, which is a record for this magnificent organisation.
