Help engineers keep our helicopters rescue ready

A flesh eating disease was spreading rapidly through Jacky’s body. Her only hope was emergency surgery. She needed an airlift to hospital—and fast.

An RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter was available immediately—but only because our engineers had worked around the clock to get it serviced on schedule.

We urgently need to raise $296,000 for our lifesaving engineering program. Please will you give a gift today, so our helicopters are rescue ready for when Queensland lives like Jacky’s are in danger?

If you’d prefer to donate over the phone, please call

We were thrilled to welcome His Excellency, Paul de Jersey AC, to the Bundaberg #RACQ LifeFlight Rescue base.
We wish him well on his tour of the wonderful Wide Bay Burnett!

Raising funds for @RACQ_LifeFlight's rescue helictoper has been a major challenge due to coronavirus restrictions. But today, local police officers were stopping residents on the street to help the rescue service. @hopemegwilson #7NEWS
