RACQ LifeFlight Rescue welcomes businesses, groups and individuals within the community to visit our hangars and meet the crew. It is an ideal way to learn first-hand about our aeromedical rescue service.

If you’ve ever wondered how the RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter is tasked to perform a rescue mission; what happens before, during and after a rescue; or if you are simply interested in aviation, a LifeFlight hangar tour will provide you with a great insight.

A tour of your local hangar includes an informative, guided tour of the facility, insights from the engineer on shift and a photo opportunity with the aircraft (subject to availability based on rescue missions and tasks). Make the most of your time at the hangar and compliment your tour with a morning or afternoon tea.

Hangar tours are available for $10.00 per person, morning/afternoon tea will be provided for an additional $5.00 per person.

Hangar tours run for approximately 45–60 minutes, guests who would like to add a morning or afternoon tea to their tour are invited to stay for a further 30 minutes. Group sizes can be a minimum of 10 people and a maximum of 30 people. 

All funds raised from the hangar tours helps to support LifeFlight to continue to provide rapid medical response care to the community.
